Review:Fromm Surf & Turf is a completely grain-free food, which means that the food will have upped amounts of animal protein, and probably increased amounts of fruits and vegetables as well to help offset what space the grain used to take. Often times, they use potatoes to help hold the food together, like this one.
This food really has no faults, The meat sources are quality and plentiful. That’s one part of the equation, and arguably the largest. However, the sheer amount of fruits and vegetables that are used to provide vitamins and fiber can’t be ignored. These are ingredients that are among the most expensive, which is why cheaper foods don’t have them. They are very good for your dog though, and these are a nice touch. Whole eggs★★★★ Good source of protein, free of shell. are used for additional protein as well.
This is a food you can’t go wrong with if you can foot the bill.
