From DogFoodAnalysis.com

The first ingredient in the food is a named meat product, in meal form. It is the sole significant meat product in the food, and our confidence that this product contains a decent amount of meat is low.


The main grains in the food are rice, oatmeal and corn. Rice and oatmeal are decent quality grains, but corn is a low quality product in dog food. It is a difficult to digest grain that is commonly associated with allergy problems. Corn Gluten Meal is the dried residue from corn after the removal of the larger part of the starch and germ, and the separation of the bran by the process employed in the wet milling manufacture of corn starch or syrup, or by enzymatic treatment of the endosperm. In plain English, that bit of the corn leftover after most of the nutritious bits have been removed. Pea fiber and the husks of psyllium seeds are further filler.


Beet pulp is controversial filler which appears to be used in large quantities in this food. It is a by-product, being dried residue from sugar beets which has been cleaned and extracted in the process of manufacturing sugar. It is a controversial ingredient in dog food, claimed by some manufacturers to be a good source of fibre, and derided by others as an ingredient added to slow down the transition of rancid animal fats and causing stress to kidney and liver in the process. We note that beet pulp is an ingredient that commonly causes problems for dogs, including allergies and ear infections, and prefer not to see it used in dog food. There are less controversial products around if additional fibre is required.

Pros: meat is the first ingredient

Cons: lots of fillers

The best food on the market for Labradors

posted 5 years ago

I have fed many diets over the years to my Labradors - adults and pups - and no diet has ever done so well for my dogs than this one.

They all love the taste of it and best of all it keeps them trim! Labs do love to eat so getting overweight is easy for them even with exercise. This diet promotes lean muscle mass and that helps keep them in good condition.

My only complaint is cost -- I know it is a very excellent food but with many large mouths to feed this diet can get too costly for many budgets. For the household with one or two Labs though it is definitely the way to go!

Pros: Excellent taste, keeps 'em trim,

Cons: cost

Pros: healthy and tasty

Cons: a little expensive
