Hill's Science Diet Adult 7+ Youthful Vitality Chicken & Vegetable Stew Canned 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 28 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Green Peas and Soybean Oil (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Dried Citrus Pulp and Natural Flavors. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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