Finally! After a gazillion emails and phone calls, the restricted diets are now reformulated as grain free AND carrageenan free! I cannot tell you what a huge deal this is! We are the only brand making this type of diet that can boast those claims.
The only reason why the formulas are now “for intermittent feeding only” is the lower protein, phosphorus, and/or magnesium levels made the new formulas not meet the AAFCO standards for a regular diet… which is why you needed a ‘restricted diet’ in the first place. Truth is, we (and AAFCO) really don’t want the pet on this type of diet unless it needs to be, so it is good to have that on the label.
Here is the AAFCO requirement for adult maintenance phosphorus for dog food vs ours:
Phosphorus 0.4 0.14
