This pet food contains several quality animal protein sources – pheasant, whitefish, duck. Contains flaxseed, Alfalfa – health promoting ingredients.

Contains Sodium Selenite – potential risk form of selenium. *FDA has yet to approve safer selenium yeast for cat foods. Contains Canola Oil; controversial oil.
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.
