Eagle Pack comes from the same company that make Wellness, so this should be a quality product. Let’s find out…
For this review we’ll look at the Original Lamb Meal & Rice Formula. Lamb Meal is the top ingredient, which is what we’d expect from the title. I always like to see a meal as the prime ingredient as it ensures a quality animal protein source. Brown rice comes next as a good digestible source of fibre.
After that, the food goes down hill. I’m not happy seeing ground yellow corn in the top three ingredients, and it’s not something I’d expect from a reputable company. Corn provides little nutritional value and most often used in pet food as it’s cheap. We find dried egg product where I’d like to see whole eggs, and brewers dried yeast as well, a by-product of the brewing industry with no nutritional value.
We do find other quality ingredients such as meat meals, flaxseed, and a range of vitamins, but I’d like there to be a selection of fruit and veggies. There aren’t.
It’s not a bad food, but it’s not great either.
What’s good about this food….
Lamb meal as the main ingredient.
….and what’s not so good.
Use of fillers. The food could do with some better ingredients.
