I have been in an ongoing email saga with Dr. Elseys food company and can use some help. Howie has been eating their pork pate for many months but I can tell he is getting bored with the food. This weekend, I got a shipment of a duck/turkey pate to see if he likes a new flavor. They have been very forthcoming with all their food values (As Fed, DMB, and I just got the ME profiles). I know that Dr. Lisa’s chart has the ME profiles and her recommendations are foods that are at least 40% protein, less than 50% fat, and less than 10% carbs. The pork pate (which he’s done very well on to keep his BG in check) is 51% protein, 41% fat, and 7.37% carbs. The duck/turkey pate is 36% protein, 62% fat, and 1.24% carbs. HOWEVER, just feeding him a small bit of the duck/turkey food shot his BG way up despite the carbs being even lower than the pork. Would the fact that the protein:fat ratio of the duck/turkey food is so different than the pork really result in his BG getting thrown off so much? I realize that I can just keep him on the pork pate, but they are changing all their food formulas next month (I have all the new food values for those too). I don’t feel like I can trust their data unless there is another reason why a low carb food would shoot his BG up. The next problem is that the pork protein in the next formula is dropping to 37% and fat is going up to 57%. The carbs are holding pretty steady at 7.89%. So will this new formula have the same effect as the duck/turkey food he just tried? I appreciate anyone’s perspective on trying to figure this out. I really like their food as it doesn’t have all the preservatives like carrageenan that upset his stomach. I guess I’m out the $50 for the case of food I can’t return to Amazon, but I really need to figure this out and what I should do next. I can stockpile a bunch of food, but that doesn’t help with the fact he is bored with it and is starting to walk away from it. Does anyone have any sort of flavor topper I could add to the pork food that is low/no carb that could liven it up for him?
