Review:

Pet PromiseFor some reason, from the name of the food, I was convinced this was going to be a pretty good food. This proves that reading the labels and not trusting your gut can prove to be very valuable, because this just isn’t very good.

It starts off well, which chicken being the top ingredient. Not chicken “meal” though, just “chicken”, which means it was weighed pre-dehydration….meaning its value in the food may be overrated. From there though, we have a disaster. First, there’s brewers rice which has little value because most of the value of the rice was taken out when it went through the alcohol brewing process. Also, corn gluten is a terrible ingredient for both digestibility and for allergies. Soy flour is from soybeans, which are another major cause of allergies and from a cheap grain. Salt also appears to be higher on this list than in most other foods, which isn’t a good sign.

This food, which is actually pretty cheap when I saw it, just isn’t very good. You get what you pay for often times, and this is just one example.



What’s good about this food….

Chicken is first, barley is a top grain.

….and what’s not so good.

Corn gluten is used, brewers rice is 2nd, soy flour, salt is high, no fruits/veggies.
