Of all the Purina dog foods we have looked at, this is the very best they have to offer, although is is still a very low grade dog food.  It is downright scary seeing brewers dried yeast in the list, but worse is seeing it this high. Natural flavor is an unknown ingredient and most likely contains some kind of nasty preservative. Chicken meal contains a very tiny amount of glucosamine and this is the only company to make such a ridiculous statement. Fish oil is an again an unknown product which most likely contains Ethoxyquin, a preservative banned in human food. Menadione sodium bisulfite complex is a synthetic Vitamin which is very harmful to dogs, to include serious liver issues. Salt is not needed in a dog’s diet and is their just to enhance the taste of a cheap dog food.
