AvoDerm Natural Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Formula Large Breed Adult Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 22 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavor and Dried Plain Beet Pulp.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this AvoDerm recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
