It contains 19 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Soybean Meal and Dried Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 11 other sketchy ingredients, including Yellow 5 and Yellow 6.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this Pedigree recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
