Dave's Pet Food Grain-Free Countryside Blend with Fresh Chicken 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 32 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Tapioca Starch and Field Pea (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavor.

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