Natural Balance Delectable Delights Gobbler Cobbler Stew Grain-Free Wet 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 4 anti-nutrients including Green Beans, Pea Protein, and Modified Tapioca Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Caramel Color and Natural Flavor. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Natural Balance's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
