Beware the (legal) sleight of hand with pet food ingredient labeling. As we noted recently, pet-food labeling rules dictate that ingredients be listed by decreasing weight, or predominance, in the food.
But "ingredient splitting" is a way to include a lot of grain sources, each listed separately - and which may appear at first glance to be a "minority ingredient." Add all the fractions together, however, and they can (and frequently do) outweigh the actual meat in the product.
↪ This is especially relevant in the case of cereal-based dry kibbles.
