    You're going to hear a lot of crap about the ingredients, but if they're working....feed it.

    Not great, in my opinion.

    "Chicken" without the "meal" has not had it's water content removed so in reality it would actually be placed further down the list.

    Poultry-by-products? what poultry? I don't use anything that does not specify the protein source.

    Then there is the corn gluten, whole grain corn, wheat and animal fat.

    Personally, I would not feed this food.

    I don't like anything with corn as that can cause alergic symptoms in many dogs. I just found this interesting site that discusses good and bad things that are in various dog foods.

    Let the labs decide. Coats,stools,ears and eyes tell the story.

    We lab owners could get in a heated dog food debate while eating at McDonalds! ;D ;D ;D

    Corn is a no-no on my food list. In addition to many flours and by-products.

    If you like it, go ahead and feed it, but if you are just evaluating, I would say try another one.

    corn gluten meal, poultry by-product meal
    I wasn't happy with those two ingredients as the 2nd and 3rd listed either.
    "Chicken" without the "meal" has not had it's water content removed so in reality it would actually be placed further down the list.
    Really? I thought plain old chicken as the first ingredient was a good thing.

    Good thing I only bought a small bag. I hate this whole food game. :-\ Ingredients listed are for
    Purina One Natural Blends.
