Would you have any worries about using a cat kibble with this "typical analysis"?

Calcium   0.91%

Phosphorus   0.93%

I wouldn't be happy about it if that's all I fed them. Ca:Po4 ratio should be 1.2-1.5:1. That seems backwards. Is it actually correct or did someone mess up the nutritional information? What food is it?

I would call or email the pfc to check those #'s. Are you still feeding homemade also ? If you want to continue that kibble, you could up the calcium slightly in the homemade to compensate.

I use several brands of canned foods, and kibble, and homemade.  I just started this kibble.
I will try to ask the company directly. These numbers were posted on their website -maybe it's just an error.
