DVP venison and brown rice

February 20th, 2007, 06:55 PM
Does anyone know the caloric content for the DVP venison and brown rice? I can't find it listed anywhere. I currently feed canidae but am switching because of possible allergy issues. I feed 1 cup of the canidae daily but I don't know how much of the DVP to feed. Their recommended feeding for her weight is 3 cups, which imo is too much. Is there anyone that has fed both before that might be able to give me some kind of guideline? Thanks

Sorry, I don't have it. You have to email or call the company.

When you get that information could you post it here, I would like to do a comparison for other "hypoallergenic" formulas?

I emailed them on Friday for that information, if I get it I'll let you know :) .

For those that are interested this is the email I received from the dvp people:

Feeding amounts would be more as there is rice splitting, which make rice the main ingredient which is less digestible than meat, the vension comes in as the second ingredient
