IMHO, by-products and corn have no place in pet food. Corn and brewer's rice are low quality fillers. And animal fat is a collective feed term that can refer to any combination of animals...this means that the composition of this ingredient can change in each bag that you buy (the company does that on purpose to save money).
Thanks for all the info, that post was really helpful too.
