However, product also contains fillers like meat by-products, corn, etc. which is a cheap quality ingredients. These won't provide much usable nutrients to your dog.

However, if your dog is a sporty breed like retrievers or guard dogs, and need a good amount of protein. Then this protein requirement is fulfilled by products like Orijen or Acana.
