Dr. Lisa of Catinfo.org has made two food charts using current information from many pet food companies applause The nutritional values are current as of yesterday way to go


The phosphorus chart is useful for CRF cats smile

I think pet food companies are more willing to share exact nutritional information with a vet than with a consumer shrug Weruva, for instance, keeps saying that their foods are very low in carb (under 3%) and good for diabetics when in fact most of their foods are in the 20%+ range shock

Binky's food charts, the Pet Food Nutritional Values chart, and Hobo's Guide To Nutritional Values have older possibly out of date values but they can still be used to get a rough idea of the nutritional content of a food.
