It contains 25 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Carob Bean Gum (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavors and Guar Gum.

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