Nutro Ultra Small Breed Adult Pate Chicken 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 1 anti-nutrient, Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Cranberry Pomace and Guar Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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