This is Solid Gold‘s grain-free food, which is more expensive than their other varieties simply because it’s more expensive to make with all of the proteins packed in and the grains are left out.
In the grain-free dog food world, I wouldn’t say this would be my top choice. It’s nothing to sneeze at for sure, as it does have a pretty high protein percentage (41%) and they do have quite a few quality oils for heart healthy Omega fatty acids and fat content. However, I do wonder why natural flavoring has to be so high on the list. That isn’t typical at all, and neither is having choline chloride in the top 10 ingredients.
There’s nothing bad in this food, let me say that. The ingredients are quality, and the makers of this food do care about pet nutrition. This is a food to try if you’re looking to go grain-free (something I support), along with Wellness Core and Orijen.
