Crude protein is a chemical analysis of the protein (e.g., chicken, milk, etc.) and non-protein (e.g., grains) amounts in the food. The recipe's low crude protein is important to avoid overtaxing the kidneys.
Crude Fat (9.0 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your dog's food when ingested. The diet is restricted in fat.
Crude Fiber (15.0 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers.
