PetGuard LifeSpan 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 19 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Dried Sweet Potatoes and Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Garlic Powder.

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