Digestibility, which describes the relative amount of nutrients that are available to the body following digestion, is often cited as a measure of a pet food’s quality. The digestibility of dry matter in dog foods should be more than 80 per cent and values for energy, protein, fat and carbohydrate between 80 and 90 per cent. Digestibility is largely determined by the source and quality of ingredients, as well as processing and amount fed. Meat, eggs and dairy products are highly digestible… Expand
