Many canned foods have protein levels that high, it's just that you have to take the moisture level into consideration and calculate the dry matter analysis with a dry matter formula. You can't just look at the labels and compare them because the moisture varies so much, you have to do the calculations in order to get the right numbers to compare the two foods (I really wish someone would make them label things differently).
Hills has a really good interactive calculator and explaination of dry matter analysis and comparing wet and dry foods since the labeling is so difficult and different between the two. They have an example on the page as well, it's pretty fun to just try it with a couple of different foods to see an actual comparison
Here's a link to the page and the calculator:Hills dry matter calculator
The cat food I am feeding my cat is Lamaderm, she has poultry allergies and it's difficult to find food for her. She's also overweight, so I'm giving her canned food in an effort to help her.
Ilovejb- I always wanted a black cat, and I was so happy to find Mynx at the animal shelter 7 years ago... he's such a snuggly sweetheart, though he's very territorial.
I hope you enjoy your MD visit.
