The diet is moderate in protein and in fat and is appropriate for all life stages including large breed puppies. The diet has a mixed fiber source to promote prebiotic effects and has a high digestibility. The carbohydrate ingredients are less commonly used than in commercial foods, so it is a good choice for dogs with suspect poultry intolerances. The diet is high in linoleic acid to help maintain the skin barrier and to promote a healthy coat. The natural beef liver promotes a strong palatability in the diet.
