* Depending on the meal selected, guaranteed Analysis will vary. See specific Guaranteed analysis information on packaging once meal options are chosen. Typical Guaranteed Analysis of our K-9 Meals is as follows:
- Minimum Crude Protein …. 8% *The equivalent conversion dry matter basis * Minimum Crude Protein…..35%
- Minimum Crude Fat………….4.3% * Minimum Crude Fat………..22%
- Maximum Fiber………………..1.5% * Maximum Fiber………………..6%
- Maximum Moisture…………..75%
** meat components are gently, but thoroughly cooked/simmered.
** Keep sealed product frozen (up to 5 months, thaw before serving) or refrigerated for up to 7 days. Product can be re-frozen.
** Once opened, keep refrigerated and use contents within 5 days.
*KEY information when reading Guaranteed analysis of wet vs. dry food: In almost every instance, moist, natural pet foods contain higher protein, fat and fiber content than dry foods – Wet and dry foods are not calculated in the same way until you remove the moisture and recalculate. In other words one cannot compare the guaranteed analysis of a wet pet food to a dry food against each other as they are currently labeled by AAFCO standards. They are measured differently, and can therefore be misleading.
The purpose of the Guaranteed Analysis panel is to make it easy for consumers to compare four critical nutrients…
However, when used alone, these numbers can be misleading.
That’s because the system used for reporting the percentages fails to consider the widely varying amount of water present in different types of foods. And this can be a critical factor when comparing moist foods — like canned,GENTLY COOKED, or raw products — WITH dry kibbles.
Even the Food and Drug Administration warns of the importance of paying attention to this issue on its own website…1
“To make meaningful comparisons of nutrient levels between a canned and dry product, they should be expressed on the same moisture basis.”
