Protein Analysis and Meat Content
Some pet food uses high plant protein ingredients to boost up the overall protein level — to make it looks like it includes a lot of meat, which is more appealing for customers.
Therefore, protein level itself cannot tell the quality and how much animal ingredients (more digestible than plants) is in the pet food.

By looking at the plant protein in top ingredients and compare with the total protein level, we can estimate how much animal ingredients is used in the pet food as Meat Content.
Based on my estimate, the meat content is Medium !
We believe it contains a moderate amount of meat, and some protein might be plant-based from non-animal ingredients. Your furbabies might just be OK with it.
