This has to be one of the worst dog foods on the market today and sadly is Purina’s best. Very little meat and a lot of low quality grains. The by-product and fat are of the lowest quality. This food contains menadione sodium bisulfite and caramel color, both toxic in some degree to dogs. Animal digest is another extremely low grade ingredient and can include hooves, feathers, teeth and horns. It also can contain dead, diseased, deceased or dying unnamed animals.

  1. Chicken
  2. Brewers rice
  3. Corn gluten meal
  4. Whole grain corn
  5. Poultry by-product meal

Chicken, is a good meat source, but it is the only meat ingredient. When the water is removed for processing it losses at least 70% of its mass, moving it down the ingredient list.

Brewer’s rice, is a low quality grade grain and all of the nutrients have been removed.

Corn gluten meal, is the lowest quality grade of corn.

Whole grain corn, corn is hard for dogs to digest and has been linked to allergies in some dogs.
