Review Summary:

First, if it matters to you, this recipe is not manufactured in the USA, it is made in Thailand. Next is the moisture content is relatively higher than most other wet food recipes by a bit, indicating you are getting more water per unit of volume. Getting into the details of this recipe, it offers Chicken and Fish meats, which provide good protein. Further down there is Tapioca starch, which is nearly a pure carb ingredient. A better substitute is to use an alternate ingredient with higher nutritional value than just carbs. Disappointingly Pumpkin is the only lonely vegetable offered. Overall, this recipe is average.


  • Multiple meat sources
  • Cons

  • Relatively higher in moisture content equates to higher water content per unit volume
  • Not manufactured in the USA
  • Contains added Tapioca starch

    Editor’s Taste Rating


    Upon opening the lid, you’ll find lots of light colored meat and light pumpkin pieces floating in fluid. The taste is a mild tuna flavor. Not much chicken flavor or anything else for that matter. Overall, the mild taste is alright.

    Ingredients Analysis

    First 5 Ingredients:

    1. Water
    2. Pumpkin
    3. Chicken
    4. Fish
    5. Tapioca Starch


    Pumpkin is a squash that offers a good variety of nutrients and most notably it is an excellent source for vitamin A and beta-carotene. Also, worth mentioning, it provides dietary fiber.

    Chicken is a source of protein with all the essential amino acids for dogs, but keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Fish  offers protein with all the essential amino acids a dog needs, and it provides healthy Omega-3 fatty acids too. Do keep in mind on this ingredient rank list, it factors in the water content when added, which is roughly about 70% or more water.

    Tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour) is high in carbohydrates and calories. Beyond this, it does not offer much nutrients, fiber, or protein. This ingredient is a poor choice for average dog’s diet.
