The Protein and Fat content on S&C freeze dried dog food is confusing. The values on the package is for “as feed dry” without rehydrating. I would use the rehydrated analysis for the freeze-dried. since you’re adding the water to the food.
As long as your dog isn’t specifically prone to, or experiencing issues with protein, there’s really no need to worry about S&C products. The freeze-dried (when fed dry) is the highest in protein, but since you’re rehydrating, it’s actually going to appear quite low.
Guaranteed Analysis: (package)
Crude Protein (min.) = 48.0%
Crude Fat (min.) = 28.0%
Rehydrated Analysis: (from S&C)
Crude Protein (min.) = 15.0%
Crude Fat (min.). = 9.0%
This is information that I received in email from Stella and Chewy directly. So concerns about excessive fat for your dog are unfounded.
