We like seeing Organic Chicken, Chicken Meal, Organic Peas and Organic Brown Rice before the first fat in this dog food . But then again we do not love seeing Potato protein and Sodium Selenite this high on the ingredient list. We would like to see salmon meal and dried egg product higher on this list, both are very good for puppies. With not a lot of fiber, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear that some puppies have loose stools on this product. With no nasty ingredients we do recommend this product.
