Merrick Classic Small Breed Recipe 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 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Peas, Sweet Potatoes, and Organic Alfalfa (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Chicken Flavor.
