Use the homeskooling cheat sheet to do your homework on any food for your dog or cat. Nutrient content varies widely among food. Dry foods range from moderate to high carbs, and canned and raw foods can range from low protein to high fat.

“The best way to analyze any food is the way professional food scientists and formulators do—by looking at where the calories come from.”
Brown, Steve. Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet: Healthier Dog Food the ABC Way. Dogwise Publishing. The cheat sheet does this and more!

Quality can vary greatly and it is affected by the source, type of ingredients, formula, heat, processing, fiber, and ash content. Ingredients can look the same as listed but protein can be poor, moderate, or high quality. For a food to be high quality it needs to be both highly digestible and contain the proper amino acids available to have actual nutritive value once digested. Since pet food companies are not require to provide a true quality score (digestibility & nutrients) we are left with evaluating the ingredients, calories, nutrient analysis, and running our own calculations to gain insight on each food. To do this we start with the listed guaranteed analysis and the calories content.

  1. When I give my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a high protein kibble they get diarrhea. Any suggestions? If I go over 34 grams of protein they get the runs!
