Raw Meaty Bones Nutritional Analysis

I remember hearing that there was a website that someone had done a nutritional analysis on different RMB's to determine protein and fat levels. Does anyone have a link to this? Also are there any premade raw diets that have done a nutritional analysis? I'm just taking an animal nutrition class and we were looking at analysis of different brands of dry food and I was interested in comparing those values to raw.

Not sure about the RMB analysis website you're referring to, but as for pre-packaged raw, the Nature's Variety site has this info: http://www.naturesvariety.com/raw_products_chicken

Here are the rest of their raw products: http://www.naturesvariety.com/raw_products

Hope that helps.

Ah-ha! Found a RMB analysis for chicken and turkey parts which might be of help: http://www.barfworld.com/html/barfworld/analysis.html

And here is a PDF from the USDA: NUTRIENT COMPOSITION OF WHOLE VERTEBRATE PREY (EXCLUDING FISH) FED IN ZOOS
