I have competitive Aussies and to keep their coat full and their energy high they need a high fat food with preferably 20% fat . I have fed both Dr. Tims 30/20 and Annamaet 32/20 but both these formulas have brown rice in them. Both formulas get 85-86% of their protein from meat sources vs plant sources. I cant seem to find food with 20% fat content that is grain free….
Part of me thinks grain free is a bit of a marketing scheme especially if the food is high in meat based protein/fat.
I worry a little about arsenic levels in brown rice. Thoughts on this?
Another one I haven’t tried is Victors high pro plus. No brown rice but not grain free. I like Annamaet for the small business and great customer service better.SusanParticipant
Hi there’s heaps of kibbles around 20% fat, when you see 18% min fat the max fat % can be up to 5% more fat, email the kibble companies & ask what is the fat max % in the formula you like..
*”Canidae” – Pure Elements-18%min fat, Pure Sea-18% min fat….Protein is 32%min in both formulas.. http://www.canidae.com/dog-food/products
*”Taste Of The Wild”- High Prairie formula-18%min fat, Wetlands formula-18%min fat, Protein is 32%min in both formulas.. http://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/#products
* “Sport Dog Elite” – Active Working Dog/Puppy formula-30/18, so email Sport dog & you find the fat is probably 20%-fat. http://www.sportdogfood.com/grain-free-active-dog-puppy-30-18/SummerRainAussiesParticipant
Thanks Susan. I probably cant get myself to touch anything food that is associated with Diamond Pet Foods.
I will take a look at “Sprort Dog Elite”.
