Wellness CORE Grain-Free Small Breed Turkey & Chicken Recipe 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 23 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Potatoes, Peas, and Dried Ground Potatoes (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Tomato Pomace and Natural Chicken Flavor.

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