Solid Gold Love At First Bark Beef 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 2 anti-nutrients including Potatoes and Dried Ground Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Guar Gum and Natural Flavor. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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.
