The value you have listed here is the as fed value on the can which includes the moisture content, as moisture varies widely for different foods it is not an accurate value for comparison to other flavours/brands. The as fed value needs to be converted to dry matter (removing all water weight) basis to be accurate for comparing.

As I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread the NV Instinct Chicken dry matter basis phos is likely somewhere between 1.07% - 1.20%. Their site is currently under construction so I don't know if they have defined the actual moisture content of their food.

You can also have him try Wellness Chicken; Turkey; Chicken & Beef
