Horizon Amicus Small & Mini Breed Adult Grain-Free 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 25 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Red Lentils, Peas, and Pea Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), but has no other questionable ingredients.

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