This Hill's Prescription Diet a/d product lists its specific ingredients. Below are the nutritional values of crude protein, fat, and fiber:
Crude Protein (44 %) is the measure of all sources of nitrogen and includes nonprotein nitrogen, which may have no human value. Crude protein is a chemical analysis of the protein (e.g., chicken, milk, etc.) and non-protein (e.g., grains) amounts in the food.
Crude Fat (33.2 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your pet's food when ingested.
Crude Fiber (0.4 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers. It has little food value but provides major intestinal tract peristalsis, a wave-like muscle contraction to relax the stomach muscles.
