In the “Read nutrient profile of the diet” table you can compare the nutritional composition of your diet (in the “Your Recipe (DM) grey column) to the AAFCO standard nutrient profile (in the next column). The last column “Balanced” will let you know what nutrients are lacking in your formulation by showing a “low” sign.
Enter the amount of Alnutrin with Calcium supplement in the “Add the supplement” table to finish balancing of your recipe (recommended range is 0.8 – 1.4). Make sure your Ca:Ph ratio stays within (1.0 - 1.3) : 1 range.
In the “Make your cat food” table enter the actual amount of meat you have available to make your cat food. The amount of meat needs to be entered in pounds (in non-metric version) or grams (in metric version). Your recipe will be automatically calculated based on the previously set % amounts in step 1. These are the actual weights you will use to make your cat food. Go to the “Conversion Calculator” if you need to convert to lb, kg, oz, or cups.
Determine the feeding amount based on the calorie density of the diet.
