    Defaultlabrador requirements for protein and fat in the diet

    I can't find the info that I had before on what are the requirements that a labrador needs to maintain good health. I am thinking about Protein and fat levels in their diet. It seems that all the hypo allergenic diets are are 20% protein and 10% fat, is that too low for a lab??

    I have talked to the breeder before and she recommends Protein around 25%, Fat 15% plus meat. But try to find a hypo allergenic food in that range, impossible.

    Thanks

    define hypo-allergenic.

    There are lots of different foods in that range...but it depends on what you are looking to avoid.

    And the protein to fat content is not a standard across the board for Labs. It depends on the dog. Rider needs a higher protein food because of the way he burns energy. Rookie doesn't.
