Kinda expected it based on the online reviews I found but... for the extra money I'm paying, there's too little freeze dried!!! Had to ration and give my pup ONE piece of freeze-dried per meal... sigh
The kibbles are the same as the other range of merricks, disappointed that the ratio of freezed dried is so low (i kind of expected it)
So no problem if the ain a is for the kibbles, the freezed dried are the bonus... But for freezed dried lovers skip this and go for primal or northwesr
