Nestle brand Purina Pro Plan isn’t as great as you think, which is surprising with this being one of the more “premium” offerings from the company. They trick you into believing it’s meaty, when the reality is it’s mostly grain. It’s not even good grains either, with brewers rice and problematic wheat being prominent ingredients.
When we account for the top five ingredients being four grains to one meat ingredient it really highlights how grain-heavy this food is. The protein and fat percentages are mediocre which further suggests a high amount of carbs in this food, and that isn’t good for your dog.
There aren’t any inclusions to boost the health of your dog. In many premium foods these days we find inclusions such as pro and pre-biotics, tumeric, omega fats, or a whole host of other nice inclusions. That’s sadly not the case with this food.
Some minor credit is due with the use of natural antioxidants, but it’s ominous that they don’t say what’s actually used.
I’ll leave it up to you whether you feed this to your pooch or not. I don’t feed it to mine.
