Merrick Classic Real Chicken + Green Peas Recipe with Ancient Grains Adult 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 21 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Peas and Organic Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavor.
