    Default Formula Comparison 2019

    I continue to study the 2019 Esbilac problems.
    During those studies I have found some interesting data that I am going to share. The first is a comparison of different formula based on Metabolizable Energy (ME). This is the definition of Metabolizable Energy.

    This is a spread sheet of different formula based on the kcal/kg.
    Some of these formula we use and some that we should never use but I have included them as a comparison.

    While this data does not explain the 2019 issues with Esbilac, it does point out just how deficient Esbilac is compared to other wildlife formula or even a higher quality puppy formula. I’m actually surprised that Esbilac has worked so well for us in the past. I think Esbilac sits on a ‘delicate edge’ between success and failure and even a small nutritional anomaly sends it crashing into the abyss of failure. Don’t get me wrong, whatever is ‘wrong’ with Esbilac 2019 is major but I personally think it takes less than we think to make it fail.

    I wanted to include something from PetAg’s own Nutritional Information Data sheet that we should take a second look at. Take a good look at the last line, not the line about Not for human consumption .
    I think we can all agree on that.
    Reading that exactly as it is stated PetAg doesn’t recommend Esbilac for raising puppies. It should only be used for intermittent or supplemental feeding. I think that acknowledgment is pretty telling. It’s not even a complete puppy formula.

    Strictly out of curiosity, does anyone know if the Royal Canin Baby Dog can makes a similar statement?

    They do not make that qualification.
