There probably isn't a lot of garlic in this food, considering how far down the list it is. But what should be more concerning than the garlic is the corn gluten meal, ground rice, ground corn, ground oats, wheat gluten etc. (is this food meant to fatten up livestock or nourish a carnivore???). Plus the fact that it's a dry food. I'd stay far far away from all Wysong kibble.

I agree with sugarcatmom about those ingredients as well as "poultry" fat.

Click on "Ingredients to Avoid" on the left hand side of the page ....

I didn't get as far as the garlic - I stopped reading ingredients at the word corn.
