    Has Purina ever documented how much of their protein in PPP is meat sourced?

    As long as the dogs do well and seem to like it, does it matter ?

    Since almost all the DCM research mentions the need for more meat protein and less plant/vegetable protein I guess it matters to me. YMMV .

    That's the guaranteed analysis but it doesn't indicate how much of the 30% protein is from meat.

    Correct, but Chicken is the first ingredient. That's the extent of my contribution to this dog food thread.

    Has anyone of you ever tried an independent company, i.e. "Dog Food Adviser" to get answers to your questions, complete breakdown analysis, ratings of all brands, reports of recalls on all dog & cat food brands, etc. If so, disregard this message. If not, you could always write them.
