Just so I might be able to brain
does not function well with these things. You
should see me calculating drug dosages for
wildlife. I do each one about 20 times to see if
I keep getting the same answer <g>.

Wouldn't 1 teaspoon of canned A/D have a whole lot
less protein than 1 teaspoon of dry A/D??? I'm
assuming this because of the water content in the
canned. Pam, your explanation helped a great
deal. And, I realize that an animal would eat
much more quantity of something packed with water.

A while back, I talked to my vet about changing my
soup recipe to accomodate Champ's need for lower
protein. I am using dry K/D as the base but am
adding canned A/D. He thought this would be OK.
Should I perhaps use canned K/D instead of
A/D?????? Talk quick, I'll be making soup again
soon <g>. I'm sure I can exchange the A/D.
