Hi all,

I was wondering if you could offer some insight for me. I asked the vet and he basically blew me off -- time for a new vet. We are currently feeding Proformatrin Ultra Grain Free.

We have a 1 yr 1 month border collie/aussie mix (with something else in there) and I was wondering if the protein is too high for her? This is what she was on in her foster home so we're keeping her on it, for now anyways. The nutritional break down is:

Crude Protein (min.) 37.0%
Crude Fat (min.) 16.0%
Crude Fiber (max.) 3.0%
Moisture (max.) 10.0%

Thanks!

Looks like a really good food. High protein is great for building lean muscle mass. Why do you think the protein is to high. Dogs eat meat and high quality proteins like meat which this food seems to have a lot of is great for a young dog full of energy.

It's not the amount but the quality of protein that's the issue regardless of breed or age.

I think I was more concerned about getting her the right balance in her food. But she seems to be doing okay on it and is eating steadily more the longer she's here. Eventually my plan is to switch her to raw, but currently she will only eat out of a kong and plays with it all over the carpet so raw would be messy :p
