This made all 10 of my dogs extremely thirsty, they peed alone the house which is unlike them. Poop was awful.

I've just recently switched on to this from Arden Grange. I know that Arden Granges price accounts for a rep and a flash car as he pops in to see me sometimes. I don't have a problem with AG but I wanted something cheaper, so I hunted around and tried this. I know its cereal based but my dogs actually do well on this, I have 10 and all are solid, so 5 stars from me.

I think you have got mature lite ingredients and normal autarky mixed up, they are not the same, on your list if you compare they are identical ingredients when in fact the are not

That is very strange. There seems to be one ingredients list on the Autarky website, another on the Dodson & Horrell website (which is the one we use here) and another in their email to you. I will see if I can get to the bottom of it.

Spoke with company today who told me the salmon is a wet weight percentage, and the chicken is a dry weight percentage.
Was wondering:-
What dry weight percentage of salmon would be?
Will knowing that cause them to have a differing score?

Hi Kedecama and thanks for posting. Yes indeed, in dry foods where just the meat source is given (without 'meal', 'dry', 'dried', 'dehydrated' etc) it generally refers to fresh meat and so the percentage will include a large proportion of water. Of course, this percentage is the amount at the start of processing and since most of the water is lost during the production of dry foods, the percentage remaining in the finished product will be much less - typically around a third of the amount stated. That means that the dry weight percentage of salmon in the salmon variety is probably closer to 10%.
All of our ratings automatically take dry/wet meat weights into account.

But surely in those circumstances where the chicken here is dry 26% it's better than as your saying 10% dry salmon! remainder of ingredients are the same?

Well, the salmon variety also contains an unspecified amount of chicken meal but even with that the chicken variety does indeed score much better in terms of meat. It does however also contain considerably more maize (the first ingredient plus the prairie meal further down) than the salmon variety which means both end up with the same rating of 3.5 out of 5.
