Thank you so much for your responses.

The calculations you have provided would indicate the Aatu Puppy is going to be a good food for my pup.  Our Vet (as with so many other vets) will not recommend any other food other than Hill's Vet Essentials which I don't want to feed due to some of the ingredients.  Thanks again for your help - much appreciated.

Dog foods / Feeding Aatu Puppy food to a Labrador puppy
« on: Jun 22, 2017, 22:17 »
We are buying a lab puppy very soon and I want to put him a food that will support his growth 100%.  I have read many reviews on the different brands and complete food and my favourites are:
1 - Aatu Puppy and second in line Skippers Puppy.

However, I am confused about the advice given for the calcium, phosphorus, calorie ratio score recommendations for labs?  Here are the recommendations:
2.0 to 4.5 g calcium per 1000 calories
2.5 to 4.0 g phosphorus per 1000 calories
Calcium to phosphorus ratio 1:1 to 1.8:1

Aatu has kindly come back to me with this information:
Calcium 0.98%
Phosphorus 0.65%
373.5 calories per 100G

Can someone advice whether Aatu is in the correct guidelines???
