That's interesting. I'm going to research the indexes of the various meat we feed. Thank you both for that idea.

No, actually I would say it's leaner than the other meats. Perhaps 5-10% maximum fat content (I usually feed inside or bottom round, fat trimmed).

I just want to re-iterate, I don't believe at all that the food we feed is causing Penny's reactivity (this has always been an issue with her from day 1) but I do have a strong suspicion that certain foods increase the intensity of it.

Thank you for trying to help me figure this out. Any and all insight is always appreciated.
