AvoDerm seems to be a better dog food than it is a cat food. Chicken meal is the first ingredient, and herring meal is found further down the list, to ensure that the meat proteins are of good quality. This food contains no by-products, corn, wheat, soy, or animal digest. The grain of choice for this food is rice, which is the best you can do for digestion, but rice bran is not a good form of rice to be feeding, nutritionally speaking.

The avocado is a very interesting ingredient, and I believe it to be pretty unique to this food. It provides many vitamins, beneficial fatty acids, and provides for a good coat. This is a quality ingredient. Flaxseed is included for a further good fat source, which is great to see.

Overall, it’s a pretty good food. I’m impressed by this one.

What’s good about this food….

Chicken meal is first ingredient, grains are pretty solid, avocados are great ingredient, flax-seed, herring meal is another meat source.

….and what’s not so good.

Rice bran isn’t a good grain.
