Does anyone know what dog food has the highest number of calories per cup? Ginger is not eating well and I am trying to find out how to get her the most amount of calories with the littlest volume possible... Yesterday I ground up her kibble in the food processor and mixed it with chicken broth into a paste and hand/syringe fed her but I am wondering if there is a higher calorie food to use than Instinct.

Evo Large Bites has 537 per cup.
All the Nature's Logic formulas have 551 per cup.

I think those are the highest of any other kibbles.

I hope you get to feeling better soon Ginger.hug

I think for:

Grain-Free: Canine Cavier Venison & Split Pea (586 kcals/cup)

Grain-Inclusive: Innova Adult (557 kcals/cup)

Oooo, yeah. I forgot all about Canine Caviar!

Their Chicken and Pearl Millet is 599 per cup.

Innova Adult is now 504 per cup.confused Guess they changed the formula.

Orijen Puppy has 523 and it's ALS. Also, I don't know how you feel about them, but TWO was always VERY high calorie. Wild & Natural was almost 600 I think. Hope Ginger feels better soon. hug
