Plus: The Taste of the Wild Pet Food Representative told me the ingredients are human quality/grade. The mineral listings do read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This pet food contains several quality animal protein sources (salmon, chicken liver, chicken, egg, fish, venison). The lining of the pet food can does not contain BPA (a controversial element in plastic linked to cancer and other illnesses).
Rating Note: The highest rating for a canned pet food is 4 paw prints – due to high moisture content of all canned pet foods.
To explain the rating – only the first five ingredients – the majority of the food – are rated and listed in bold type. Grey Font ingredients imply inferior quality ingredients providing pets little to no nutrition, and Red Font ingredients are Red Flag ingredients that are potentially dangerous to pets. Quality ingredients are listed in bold black font. Five quality ingredients gives the pet food a five Paw Print rating. Four quality ingredients gives the pet food a four Paw Print rating, and so forth. Four Paw Prints is the highest rating possible for a canned pet food. Do not rely on the paw print rating alone; read the Plus/Minus information and manufacturer information at the top of each page.
