I don't know which flavor you are referring to, so I just looked at a couple different varieties.

They all seem to be chalked full of fillers and by-products. I don't see any dangerous ingredients, but honestly, it's a very low-quality dry food. (but a lot of "popular" brands, such as Iams, Friskies, and Purina tend to be low-quality or even outright bad, even though they're advertised as "the best" by TVs and veterinarians alike)

I'd suggest looking for a nice grain-free kibble or - better yet - canned food. But if you really prefer the dry, I can give you a couple suggestions off the top of my head. Merrick, Acana, Castor & Pollux, Earthborn Holistic, Farmina, Fromm, Wild Calling, and Nature's Variety should all be very good grain-free kibble brands.

Oliver really loves wet food, so whichever would be better.

It's great that Oliver already loves wet food Like Augustine said - try to get him onto that, some if not all wet. It's so much better for him. Good luck!

^ that's funny, because it's true.

It's the same old crap, just dressed up and labeled prettier.
