|The iVet looks a bit grain heavy, but it's not as bad as other prescription brands like SD (at least iVet doesn't use corn, soy or wheat but brewers rice isn't a great ingredient either.). However, I noticed they use Menadione. That is a pretty bad ingredient. Ironic that it's in a veterinary formula. (http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=menadione) Also, is there a specific reason you are on a veterinary food? If your dog has no certain health issues, I don't see the reason for paying for a middle-of-the-road vet food when you can probably get a better, meatier kibble elsewhere for cheaper.
Just a side note- yes, the first ingredient in the iVet is chicken meal, which is good, but it's followed by 3 grains so the meat content is probably pretty questionable, as the grain content could very well outweigh the meat content. A good, meaty kibble should have several named meat sources listed in the first line or so of the ingredient panel.
I just looked at the Frank's breeder line food, and I would definitely choose iVet instead if I had to choose between the two. However, there are better options than both foods out there for a decent price.
