    you
    mean this? Here's the list of ingredients.

    Wheat, Meat Meal (min 10% beef in red kibble), Wheatfeed, Maize, Poultry Fat, Digest, Linseed, Beet Pulp, Rice, Peas (min 4% in pea kibble), Lucerne, Minerals, Yeast (0.08%), Citrus Extract (0.04%) & Yucca Extract (0.01%)

    It's only 10% meat and the rest is mostly grain. I would find something much much better than this. It looks really low-end to me. Sorry

    this
    is Bakers. Not much better than the Wagg stuff. Still mostly non-meat product.

    Cereals (35%), Meat and animal derivatives (26% meat in the chunk, 4% beef in the brown & natural kernels), Vegetable protein extracts, Derivatives of vegetable origin, Oils and fats, Various sugars, Minerals, Vegetables (4% vegetables in the green & yellow kernels).

    Not a good food, for sure. I would definitely recommend something with a lot more meat content. Taste of the Wild is very popular, we have had great luck with it.

    I googled that one too....it's no good. It's very low in protein and is mainly corn (maize) and wheat. Iams isn't great, but it's far better than the ones you listed. Can you get Iams Lamb and rice? It's pretty good for dogs with stomach issues. If a dog has stomach issues, you want to avoid feed that has grains because dogs were not designed to digest grains.

    With that list of ingredients, I sure hope it is really cheap. You could give your dog 2 slices of bread and a piece of baloney and it would be a better diet. To make it more like the dog food, you'd put a couple pieces of grass into the sandwich, since the kibble has hay in it.
