I highlighted a few incredients here. This is not the "worst" food you could get, as a kibble, but it is LOADED with grains and starches. Dogs and cats, being carnivores, need none of this. My three dogs and 2 cats haven't eaten anything other than meat, bones and organs for about a year now, and they're healthier than they've ever been. The thing is, we are often fooled by what animals seem to "like" eating, but keep this in mind; humans often really "like" chocolate bars, big macs and potato chips, but it's really not real food, and really has no place in our diets. Same goes for things like premade treats, carrots, etc.

The flax seeds are presumably a source of omegas, but a) unless they're freshly ground they have little nutritional value and b) better to get omegas from a wild fish source.

I highlighted the Natural Flavour too. Why on earth does dog food need flavouring?
