First, corn occupies the 1st and 3rd slots, which means that most of the food is probably filler. That is certainly not a good sign, especially when that filler isn’t very nutritious for the dog. The main animal source is a by-product, which means your dog is eating some of the most disgusting parts of the animal that humans won’t go near. It’s nice to see that rice is used as a grain in this food because of how digestible it is, but it’s sandwiched between corn and wheat, which is awful.
The Goodlife Recipe is pretty cheap, which is good because the ingredients are also pretty cheap.

What’s good about this food….
Use of rice as grain, beef is 4th.
….and what’s not so good.
Meat content is low, by-products are used, corn is 1st and 3rd, wheat is present, salt fairly high, artificial color.
