I've never heard of it, and since the ingredient list is in another language that I can't read, it's impossible to know if it's a good food or not.

I'm just curious what about it appealed to you? I think the info I read described it as an ultra premium food, but a food of any quality can make that claim. I see potatoes as the 3rd ingredient behind chicken and chicken liver. I've always heard that white potatoes (not sweet potatoes) are pro-inflammatory foods in humans and animals, so not all that desirable. Corn is a fourth ingredient. I'm not thrilled about corn in dogfood but confess that I have a cat (who are obligate carnivores) on a food that contains corn, because the food works for him and nothing else really does...
It's certainly not the worst ingredient list, but there's probably better out there if you have a choice. Do you mind saying where you are located (in general)? Hopefully, someone with more nutrition knowledge will chime in. I was also thinking that a lot of liver can be undesirable due to a build up of Vitamin A, and I think Chicken Liver is the 2nd ingredient.
There are several knowledgeable nutrition people on this board. Maybe they will be along to comment later.
