When five of the first six ingredients include corn, barley, and sorghum you should sincerely reconsider your selection. Ingredients are listed in volume BEFORE processing. When cooked moisture is removed so having chicken as the first ingredient does not mean your pet is receiving a large percentage of meat in it's diet.It's actually a lot less than you think. This can be concerning given a dog's biological needs are not that of a diet of mostly plant material. Studies show that feeding a food high in plant material is exactly what causes serious health concerns later in life like organ failure and severe dental disease. Their bodies simply were not designed for it. Have you ever seen a dog with flat molars like a horse or a cow?
It's also interesting that veterinarians receive incentives from Hills to sell their entire line. I would not recommend this food in any capacity.
