Flint (Trout & Sweet Potato)

Flint River Ranch (Trout and Sweet Potato) is a very pricey product compared to the rest of the dog food being sold today and it is only sold online. For any food in this price range it would be very difficult to get everything right as people would want extreme value for their money. Its starts off very well though with its main ingredient.

The main ingredient with this product is trout as the label says. The secondary source of animal protein is in 4th place by weight being herring meal. There is only two sources of protein in this food and the rest is stocked with millet which is not a very good grain for dog food in any event. sweet potato has been added to fill the carbohydrate requirements for the food.

Like much of the other high priced dog food they have also added cranberries, blueberries, grape seed oil and fish meal for fatty acids in the dogs diet. You can buy this food online but the price is a bit over the top. Overall a good food but the price tag is simply to much to even consider, considering the ingredients in the food.

Good Points:

Overall it is well balanced with a good source of protein and no by-products used. There are a number of fruits included as well as fish meal for fatty acids. The use of millet and oat bran is not that good and dents the quality factor a bit. The dog food is also balanced off with mufti-vitamins which is a good factor.  The price is the only real downside of this dog-food.
