" Least"

The proportions and exact origin of animal proteins are not specified in the list of ingredients. The first ingredient listed is rice. It is therefore the ingredient used in the greatest proportion before cooking in these croquettes. It is a less interesting source of vegetable protein, nutritionally speaking, than animal protein. The low phosphorus content of these kibbles gives an additional clue to their probably higher vegetable protein content than animal protein.

Lipids

In these croquettes, lipids are mainly provided by animal fats, soybean oil, fish oil and coconut oil. The respective omega-6 and in omega-3 are 3.17% and 0.77% including 0.40% of EPA and DHA (long chain omega-3).

" The most"

These kibbles are sources of long-chain omega-3s and have a rather balanced omega-ratio.

Available carbohydrates

In these kibbles, the main sources of assimilable carbohydrates are rice and corn flour. The estimated percentage of assimilable carbohydrates of these kibbles is approximately 36%.

Absorbable carbohydrates are carbohydrates that provide energy in the form of calories to the dog. Their percentage is calculated according to the following formula: %assimilable carbohydrates=100-%proteins-%lipids-%cellulose-%ash-%moisture. When not specified by the manufacturer, humidity is estimated at 10%.

" The most"

The first source of assimilable carbohydrates is rice. It is the most digestible for the dog.

Calcium and phosphorus

The percentages of calcium and phosphorus in these kibbles are 0.70% and 1.01%, i.e. a calcium/phosphorus ratio of 1.3.

" The most"
