The protein & the fat are in equal percentages at 35% each. While the protein part doesn't bother me, the high fat content does seem rather high.

That is not 35% fat. It is 35% of calories are from fat. It has 17% fat.
Thanks for pointing that out. I meant to say is that 35% of the calories were from fat, which I thought was kind of on the high side.

My apologies for the confusion. :smile:

Its grain free & 17% fat content seems like a great food! I would get this!:smile: They have diffrent types of this food also. Who manufactures this food? I have to find that out. Do the specialty pet stores carry this I have not seen it at the two I go to.
