Zignature Zssential Multi-Protein Formula Grain-Free Canned 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 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Chickpeas, Peas, and Suncured Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), but has no other questionable ingredients. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.

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