If your dog likes salmon this dog food could be for you. It looks to be grain light and we see no nasty ingredients. We are confused about the use of potato protein and natural vegan flavors. We like seeing Oatmeal replacing grains. Tomato pomace is a filler, but it does serve a purpose with high fiber. Overall this is a pretty good dog food.

Salmon is a great meat source for dogs and is very good for a dog’s skin and coat.

Salmon meal is another good meat source.

Potatoes are good source of Vitamin C and potassium.

Oatmeal has been linked to the control of heart disease in humans. We feel this is as good a grain or such that you can find in a dog food.

Barley is a medium quality grain.
