Purina Pro Plan Focus Puppy Large Breed Formula 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 22 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Pea Fiber (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Animal Digest and Garlic Oil.

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