when you shop Notes on using this table:

The most important value is on the far right, mg of phosphorus per 100 kcals. This allows you to
compare different foods to each other, and to prescription kidney diets in the section on Prescription
Keep Me Singing Diets. For dogs with early stage kidney disease, try to find a combination of foods that average out to
Van Morrison 150 mg of phosphorus or less per 100 kcals. The prescription diets for late stage kidney disease have

anywhere from 45 to 95 mg phosphorus per 100 kcals.
Color coding: phosphorus values are colored red as a reminder that this is the number you need to be

most concerned about. In the Phosphorus per 100 kcals column, the best values are colored green, the
acceptable values are colored blue, and the higher values are colored orange, with very high values red.
Remember that dogs with significant amounts of protein in the urine will need moderate protein
reduction in their diet, and dogs that are uremic (BUN over 80) will need protein restricted to control
symptoms, but otherwise protein is fine to feed in any amount, it's only phosphorus that you need to be
concerned with.
Data on Raw Meaty Bones is from various sources, including Raw Meaty Bones Analysis and
Nutritional Analysis of Chicken & Turkey Necks (no longer available). Whole chicken data taken from
Nutrient Composition of Whole Vertebrate Prey. Percentages of meat, bone, skin and separable fat are
taken from the USDA Nutrient Database. Calorie amounts shown in parentheses are for 100 grams of
meat only, so are for comparison only, they're not considered accurate. That also means that the
Phos/100 kcals are not accurate as well, and are also shown in parentheses.
Values for Protein, Fat and Carbs are grams per 100 grams (approximately 3.5 ounces, or a little less
than 1/2 cup). Values for Calcium and Phosphorus are milligrams per 100 grams. Egg yolks are grams
per 2 large eggs (34 grams). Egg whites are grams per 2 large eggs (66 grams). All values are as fed, not
dry matter.
Note that values for ground meat can vary based on the amount of fat, whether skin is included, what
type of meat (e.g., dark meat vs. light meat chicken), and other factors. In general, higher fat, meat with
fat, and dark meat (which is fattier) has less protein and less phosphorus.
To convert to ounces, multiply by .2835 (roughly, divide by 4). To convert to pounds, multiply by
4.54 (roughly, by 5).
Kcal is an abbreviation for calories.

* Values vary between brands and products. Quick versions appear to be quite high in phosphorus, possibly
due to the use of disodium phosphate to speed the cooking process (check the ingredient label). Regular,
Instant and Mix'n Eat all have low phosphorus according to the Nutrition Database. Amounts for Malt-o-Meal
were confirmed with the company in December 2012.
If "% of Daily Value" is shown, you can calculate the amount of phosphorus, which is based on adult
recommendations of 1,000 mg. For example, if the box shows 2% of DV per serving, that would be
approximately 20 mg phosphorus. Divide that number by the number of calories per serving and multiply by
100 to determine mg of phosphorus per 100 kcals. For example, if a serving has 20 mg phosphorus and 80
kcals, that would be 25 mg phosphorus per 100 kcals (20 80 * 100).
