It contains 29 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 9 anti-nutrients including Peas, Pea Protein, and Tapioca Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavor and Vegetable Juice For Color.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Blue Buffalo's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
