Solid Gold High Protein Grain-Free Cold Water Salmon & Krill Meal Recipe Adult 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 4 anti-nutrients including Peas, Pea Protein, and Pea Flour (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Tomato Pomace and Natural Flavor.

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