I loved feeding this food to my 3 little dogs. I thought I was picking something healthy for them. However, one of mine developed a heart murmur over the span on being on this food ( I fed it for a year). The vet asked what kind of food I was feeding and she then told me about the FDA recommendation to avoid grain free foods for dogs because it can increase the risk of them developing this life threatening condition. I know it is isn't guaranteed that this food caused my dog's illness, but having had a pet with this disorder before I know it doesn't end happily for the pet or me. I've switched to a different brand of food that isn't grain free.
