FirstMate High Performance 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 18 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Potato Flour (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Tomato Pomace and Garlic Oil.

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