Merrick Grain-Free Real Venison + Chickpeas 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 19 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 5 anti-nutrients including Chickpeas, Peas, and Tapioca (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavor.
