That ingredient list sounded bad to me. There should not be any vegies, fruit, berries, seed oils. Please try to find food that is mostly meat and meat by products.
farleyv- I'm hoping that, at the very least, you're meaning a specific meat's by-products....as in "chicken by-products" versus "meat by-products"......
Batten down your hatches for sure, after your post and my reply....I'm sure the storm is coming on!
Folks, before you start in on specific by-products.....does anyone think their cats would do poorly on mouse "by-products"?
