Actually I have heard of Verus. I know we have some Lit. on it at work, here's what I found for adult chicken and oat. It doesn't look terrible but it's not great either.
Chicken Meal, Ground Oats, Ground Brown Rice, Rice Bran, Poultry Fat (preserved with Natural Mixed Tocopherols, Citric Acid, and Rosemary Extract) Dried Beet Pulp, Alfalfa Meal, Flaxseed, Tomato Pomace, Natural Flavors, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Chicory Root Extract, Kelp, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Choline Chloride, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Amino Acid Chelate, Garlic, Ascorbic Acid, Copper Amino Acid Chelate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Vitamin A Acetate, d-Calcuim Pantothenate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Manganese Amino Acid Chelate, Sodium Selenite, Thiamine Mononitrate, Calcium Iodate.
I don't like the use of the rice bran along with the rice. Dried beet pulp is not good either, absorbs too much water from the colon. Tomato Pomace, natural flavors, and salt.............why, why, and why. If you are already feeding Wellness, Canidae or one of the other favorites I wouldn't use this food. You are feeding better already.
I'm not a fan of lite food. It doesn't help with weight loss it makes the poor dog or cat fatter. Take out some grain and add some meat, their bodies would thank the company and they would actually lose the un-necessary weight.
