I wouldn't use it. Ground yellow corn is the second ingredient and while ground yellow corn is better than some of the other ways corn is used as a filler, I much prefer to use a food that doesn't have corn--its said to be the #3 highest food allergy for dogs.

Overall, it doesn't look too bad.  I don't like that corn then, brewers rice, are 2nd and 3rd on the list.  I'm not totally against corn as long as Minnie doesn't have an issue with it (as Kim stated, it's a common allergen), I'd just rather see the two meat sources first.  I think, too, that a nice brown or white rice should be used instead of brewers rice.  Salt is kind of high up on the list, too.  Either they use a lot of salt or not much fruits and veggies.  The only other think I'm not crazy about is having yucca in it.  Yucca is not something I would want to see given every day, unless it is necessary for the dog, as it can be rough on the digestive system.

How funny that you should pull that up two days after we've had a big conversation about it here! I'd put it right in the middle of the pack, okay, but not great. Too much grain overall. But the bigger problem I have with it, is that it's a MLM product.
