    People here are always posting these neat dog food charts and I always forget to save the links and since there’s no searching feature here, it’s near impossible to be able to find them again. How do y’all find those neat charts? I’ve googled till I’m blue in the face and can’t find anything good.

    Is there a chart that gives the percentage of meat protein in the most popular/common dog foods?

    The other day there was a calorie chart starting with high and going to low…do any of you have a link for that chart too? I’d love to have it.

    I haven’t seen the calorie chart! That sounds interesting. I’m no good at google either, but I’m practicing and getting better. We probably need a new thread just to post resources in. Most companies don’t actually disclose how much meat they put in their food. You have to guess based on the protein% and what other ingredients contribute significant protein.

    I think that HDM posted the calorie chart about a couple weeks ago and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t save the link. I cannot remember if it was in a thread or in the review section either…boo ME! HAHA!

    Here’s an article with meat & bone info for raw feeders:

    I haven’t seen the charts you mentioned either!

    Well darn, it was a chart of the most popular dry dog foods and it listed the calories, I think it may have also listed some other things too. I think that who posted the chart said that the higher the calories also meant the higher the meat protein was. My memory is pretty lame these menopausal years…HA!

    Usually, but not always there is a correlation between amount of meat and amount of fat, so higher meat would have higher fat would have higher calories. Some cheaper foods just load up the fat though.

    And some sporting/working dog formulas are very high fat (as much as the meat) so it wouldn’t have more meat due the high calories.

    Hmm…sounds interesting! If anyone can figure out who posted it and where I’d like to check it out!

    I did manage to find this:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0AsBcSQ8_xK_ndDRkYWo3NmRSWEl4T1NuX290bG5ULVE&output=html

    It’s probably too out of date to be much help though.

    That is quite a find and some of it is recent enough to have Orijen Whole Prey on it, so it isn’t that old.

    Nice. It’s all information that could be found right on the bag or product website but I suppose it would be a nice way to compare several foods at one time.

    I liked being able to run down the list and see which ones had a favorable calorie count.
