    I have a newly diagnosed diabetic cat (10 year old male). My question is about food. I’m looking for low carb food he will eat. In particular I think I’m looking for the dry matter carbohydrate content percentage. But this confuses me as every site shows a different percentage.

    For example, Fancy Feast Chicken Feast Classic

    CatInfo.org 3%
    BiggerVet.com 4%
    MyBeaconVet.com 4.09%
    DiabeticCatHelp.com 6.81%
    PawDiet.com 22.73%

    What is PawDiet showing different than the others?

    Thanks, Chris

    PawDiet confirmed their data is calculated as percentage weight. That's too bad as its a nice site with lots of food data. Why would they do that? What usefulness is % weight?
