This is a decent dog food but we are concerned about the chicken fat being No. 3 on the ingredient list. The meat level is pretty high with only 2 ingredients before the 1st fat. Update: This dog food is now produced without Vitamin K. We do like seeing an egg product this high. This dog food was produced with hard working dogs in mind.

Chicken fat, a study at Purdue University came to the conclusion that chicken fat in the first 5 ingredient may promote bloat in some dogs.
