Lotus Wholesome Puppy Recipe 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 17 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Soybean Oil, Pea Fiber, and Sweet Potatoes (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Brewers Dried Yeast and Garlic.

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