Hey Katieb (and other feline-nutrition-obsessed folks like me),
I've been making a giant spreadsheet of many of the popular wet and dry foods out there over the past few months, based on info from all of the cat food websites and links that are always posted on this forum (catinfo.org, feline-nutrition.org, etc). I wanted to do this since Janet & Binky's chart
doesn't include all of the brands or info I want, and I like working with numbers. I've mainly utilized the formulas on catinfo.org's site to calculate all of the missing numbers and percentages that the cat food brands leave to us to figure out.
On my spreadsheet I've included info such as:
whether its grain-free,
the guaranteed analysis (GA) numbers,
the GA numbers converted to a dry-matter basis,
goals as to what these converted numbers should be,
estimated carbohydrate content based on the GA (since NO brand tells you, even though this number is important !!)
estimated calories from carbs, fat, and protein based on the GA,
estimated calories per 100gs of that food,
and most importantly - the metabolizable energy profile:
- the percentage calories from carbs (keep it under 10%)
- the percentage calories from protein (keep it around or above 50%)
- the percentage calories from fat (keep it around or below 40%)
the wet food is on the first tab (click through tabs on lower-left hand side), the dry food is on the second tab, and the third tab includes info to remember when choosing a cat food as well as ingredients to avoid.
here it is: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?...en&output=html
I bet this is wayyy more info than you wanted, but our fur-babies deserve only the best, right?
