Dear Allaboutcats community, I have a question about calculating the carb content in wet food. What is the best range of carb content on the dry matter basis in wet foods to shoot for? My new cat is about one, healthy, and not picky. P.S. Why is that some food reviews on the website say foods that have 15% carb (on the dry matter basis) as extremely low carb option while some 0% carb foods are considered excessively high?

Hello! So sorry about the late reply. Regardless of if a food is dry or wet, a carbohydrate percentage of 10% or less is ideal. This is the number at which we start to see diabetic remission (potentially) and which seems to mimic a feline's prey-based diet. I'm not sure where you saw that some 0% carbohydrate foods are considered high-carb...can you please give the name of an article that says that? This is not correct at all.
