Hmm, interesting. According to J&B's chart, the phosphorus level is 146mg/100Kcal, which is really quite excellent, and venison tends to be naturally lower in phosphorus than most other types of meat. I'm wondering if that 0.62% isn't a Dry Matter value already?

ETA: Here's a little list put out by a vet listing some of the lower phosphorus foods for CRF kitties: http://sites.google.com/site/felineh...kidney-disease
