Looks Like Purina Pro-Plan Selects Turkey and Barley forumla - with the corn taken out of the ingredients.

If thats the case, its still too grain heavy for me.   No need for all that grains.  Wolfs survived not eating carbs, hence no need for a dog to have all of them either.

Too much grains IMO can lead to obesity and thus giving no nutritional value to the dog.

The biggest things I see is that it contains "animal fat" (from what "animal"???) and A LOT of fillers. Beet pulp and pea fiber are fillers that contain no nutritional value. So basically, feeding this food is like throwing a certain percentage of your money in the toilet (literally).

There are a lot of much better foods out there. The person who emailed you would be much better off choosing a food from the Whole Dog Journal's list of recommended foods. :)

Now there is something that will drive you crazy....It is already so hard to find and know what is good and then even when you find it, sometimes the boxer belly does not like it anyway....:)
