With any wet food, we have to take into account the water content. Therefore, in order to compare our wet human grade dog food to dry food, we have to use a formula:
- We subtract the moisture content of the wet food from 100
- We then take that number and divide the protein by the aforementioned calculation
- For example, our Beef and Rice recipe has 72% moisture so 100-72=28
- Our percentage protein is 8%, so our protein on a dry basis is 8÷28=28.5%
We can now compare the two protein levels, the dry food and Lucky Dog Cuisine, on a dry weight basis.
