Plus: The Red Moon Representative told me ingredients are human grade/human quality. The mineral listings do read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This pet food contains several animal protein sources – salmon, sardine, chicken, chicken liver. Very prompt customer service.
Minus: Base formula does not include probiotics (friendly bacteria that benefits the intestinal system and in turn the immune system of the pet); can be added as supplement.
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.
