Blue Buffalo Wilderness Denali Dinner with Wild Salmon 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 25 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 9 anti-nutrients including Menhaden Fish Meal (source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids), Tapioca Starch, Pea Protein, and Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Deboned Halibut, 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.
