I went to the animal food store in my area this morning and the owner gave me samples of an holistic food he will have in stock soon. It's call Holistic Proseries. Anyone know that brand ? First ingredients ; chicken meal,fish meal, ground brown rice, whole barley, whole oats , chicken fat.... this doesn't impress me , am I wrong ?

Well, it's better than foods with mystery meats, but still- so many things in there to be allergic to- wheat, corn high up on the list... Just not too meaty and the grains are crappy ones.

If it didn't have menadione sodium bisulfite complex in it then it would be pretty good for the price IMO.
