Rice, Maize, maize meal, beet pulp make up the next 4 ingredients and rice is already %25, rice can have higher then accepable levels of arsenic. Then you get Poultry fat...non-specific....then it gets worse..."Animal Protien" - What animal? Every kitchen sink carcass that goes to rendering plants incl. euthinized dogs and cats from shelters. I have a video of this. People think they are incinerated, nope! My friend worked for THS...the animals were tossed in recycling bins in the back...just like the trash and a company comes and picks them up. From this you get "Meat, Meat meal" "animal protien", "fat"...as well incl. in these rendered products are road kill, so that incl. raccoons that died of rabies or lepto etc.

Preserved with natural ingredients - does NOT say Vit. E and/or C.

Realize this is a product in Europe or the UK and their standards and regulations of pet food production are very strict. You cannot apply the typical ideas seen on an American website to this food. I would look into your country's regulations and ingredient definitions to find out what things are. EU regulations are very strict about putting anything in a pet food that is not clean or nutritional (hard for me to put in the right words.) This should help Home | FEDIAF

thank you for link!
good info about terms and labeling.

this particular food is made in Germany.
i can't imagine people in Germany scraping roadkills off of the roads and
processing them into petfood.

It sounds like a good deal to me, if that's all you can get
As East said, it's probably a higher quality than you can get here in the states.

Contribution of feed materials

The nutrients that enter into the composition of products are found in meat, fish, cereals and vegetables or are supplied in the form of supplements. The industry therefore uses meat by-products, poultry pieces or leftovers from the fish filleting industry that are mixed with vegetable materials (cereals, legumes...).
Materials of animal origin come from abattoirs and animals which have been passed as fit for human consumption by the official veterinary services.
The nutritional value and bacteriological characteristics of the feed materials are prerequisites. All pet food plants using raw materials of animal origin must be under the control of the veterinary services and manufacturers conduct analyses on all the feed materials as soon as they enter their plants.
