Proteins

Quantitative protein analysis

The calculated protein-calorie ratio of Royal Canin Beagle Adult is approximately 79g of protein for 1000Kcal. The protein content of these kibbles is theoretically sufficient to cover the needs of a whole and active adult beagle or a neutered or sedentary dog. On the other hand, they do not seem to be suitable for a beagle who is both neutered or sedentary.

" Least"

The proportions and exact origin of animal proteins are not specified in the list of ingredients. The latter also mentions 5 vegetable protein sources, against only 2 animal protein sources.

Available carbohydrates

In these kibbles, the main sources of assimilable carbohydrates are corn, rice and wheat. The estimated percentage of assimilable carbohydrates of these kibbles is approximately 41%.

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%.

" Least"

These kibbles multiply the sources of assimilable carbohydrates and seem a little too rich in assimilable carbohydrates for the dog. They have a calculated nitrogen-free extractant rate of 41%.

Calcium and phosphorus

The percentages of calcium and phosphorus in these kibbles are 0.70% and 0.90%, i.e. a calcium/phosphorus ratio of 1.3.
