It contains 21 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Ground Tapioca, Pea Protein, and Ground Tapioca) (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Guar Gum and Caramel (Color). Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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