Review Summary:

This recipe offers good meat for protein, and a decent variety of vegetables. The chicken inside is in natural chunks. This wet dog food a healthy choice to consider.

Pros

  • Good variety of wholesome vegetables
  • Chicken is a good meat source listed twice in the top five ingredients
  • Editor’s Taste Rating

     7.5/10

    Large whole some pieces of peas, baby carrots, and chicken meat chunks are clearly visible. Lots of sauce, but the flavor is very mild. The large chicken chunks do deliver chicken taste; it is not bad tasting, but not great either.
