Earth Animal Raw Complete Powder Cat & Dog Food Supplement

Earth Animal Raw Complete Powder Cat & Dog Food Supplement

Are Raw Food diets complete? No! Dr. Bob Goldstein has formulated the Daily Raw Complete Powder, a nutritional supplement to add to Raw Meat diets. It is a culmination of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, probiotics and high levels of Vitamin E that will give the nutrients necessary if you are feeding Raw Food.

Many nutrients are missing in raw dog food diets. The Daily Raw Complete Powder is made to give your furry friends back the nutrition that is missing. It features essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, probiotics and high levels of Vitamin E. These nutrients will help your raw fed dog thrive.

The benefits of feeding Raw Meat are a healthy skin and coat, cleaner teeth, fresher breath, better weight control, improved digestion, reduction of allergy symptoms, more energy, & increased mobility in older animals.

Below is a tutorial to add Earth Animal Raw Complete Powder to Pet Diet Designer. This tutorial will help you to understand how to add nutrients listed on the label with percentage (%), ppm, and IU/lb.

Preliminary Calculations

Before we actually enter the supplement into the database using the Food Wizard, we first need to do some minor calculations. Our next update will be able to handle these calculations automatically. The guaranteed analysis for this supplement can be used for any weight so we are going to enter values for 100 grams, the same amount that is actually stored in the database.

The percentage calculations are fairly easy. Each percentage will be compared to 100 grams as in the following:

Crude Protein 5.0% Min = 5% of 100 grams = 0.05(100) = 5 grams
Crude Fat 20.0% Min = 20% of 100 grams = 0.2(100) = 20 grams
Crude Fiber 5% Max = 5% of 100 grams = 0.05(100) = 5 grams
Moisture 7% Max = 7% of 100 grams = 0.07(100) = 7 grams

Calcium 1.7% = 1.7% of 100 grams = 0.017(100) = 1.7 grams
Phosphorus 0.05% = 0.05% of 100 grams = 0.0005(100) = 0.05 grams
Potassium 0.38% = 0.38% of 100 grams = 0.0038(100) = 0.38 grams
Magnesium 0.10% = 0.10% of 100 grams = 0.001(100) = 0.1 grams
Sodium 0.63% = 0.63% of 100 grams = 0.0063(100) = 0.63 grams
Chloride 0.15% = 0.15% of 100 grams = 0.0015(100) = 0.15 grams


EPA 6.25% = 6.25% of 100 grams = 0.0625(100) = 6.25 grams
DHA 4.10% = 4.10% of 100 grams = 0.041(100) = 4.1 grams

A milligram is one ppm of a kilogram; therefore, one ppm is the same as one milligram per kilogram. So whenever you see ppm, you can just replace it with mg/kg. Since we are entering the amount for 100 grams we will take the value and divide by 10 (1kg (1000 grams) / 10 = 100 grams).

Please see this excellent article for an in depth discussion of ppm: http://www.nesc.wvu.edu/ndwc/articles/ot/fa04/q&a.pdf

Iron 850 ppm = 850 mg/kg = 850/10 = 85 mg
Copper 90 ppm = 90 mg/kg = 90/10 = 9 mg
Manganese 300 ppm = 300 mg/kg = 300/10 = 30 mg
Zinc 1600 ppm = 1600 mg/kg = 1600/10 = 160 mg
Iodine 100 ppm = 100 mg/kg = 100/10 = 10 mg
Selenium 1.8 ppm = 1.8 mg/kg = 1.8/10 = 0.18 mg

Thiamin 30 ppm = 30 mg/kg = 30/10 = 3 mg
Riboflavin 33 ppm = 33 mg/kg = 33/10 = 3.3 mg
Vitamin B5 150 ppm = 150 mg/kg = 150/10 = 15 mg
Niacin 160 ppm = 160 mg/kg = 160/10 = 16 mg
Pyridoxine 30 ppm = 30 mg/kg = 30/10 = 3 mg
Folic Acid 6 ppm = 6 mg/kg = 6/10 = 0.6 mg
Vitamin B12 0.6 ppm = 0.6 mg/kg = 0.6/10 = 0.06 mg

Next, we need to convert the values for IU/lb. This is trickier. First we need to calculate the IU amount for 100 grams. One pound equals 453.592 grams. By dividing 100 into 453.592, we get 4.53592. We divide the values below by 4.53592 to get the vitamin amounts in IU per 100 grams. We are going to assume Vitamin A from retinol, not beta-carotene. We are also going to assume natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol).

Vitamin A 98,000 IU/lb = 98,000/4.53592 IU/100g = 21,605.319 IU/100g
Vitamin D3 10,000 IU/lb = 10,000/4.53592 IU/100g = 2,204.624 IU/100g
Vitamin E Supplement 4,100 IU/lb = 4,100/4.53592 IU/100g = 903.896 IU/100g

Finally, we need to calculate the Food Energy value. We can use the values for protein and fat to arrive at this metric.

Energy for protein = 5 grams times 4 kcal = 20 kcal
Energy for fat = 20 grams times 9 kcal = 180 kcal
Therefore, total Food Energy = 20 + 180 = 200 kcal in 100 grams.

Food Energy 200 kcal
Protein 5 grams
Fat 20 grams
Fiber 5 grams

Manganese 30 mg
Selenium 0.18 mg
Iodine 10 mg

Food Wizard Tutorial

Below we have a series of screenshots that show the values that we enter into the Food Wizard. Open the Food Wizard and start entering the values as shown.

Step 1 - Add Common Measure

The image below shows the first tab in the Food Wizard. We choose to enter values per 100 grams.

Step 1 - Add Common Measure

Step 2 - Food Name

The image below shows the second tab in the Food Wizard. The only required value that you have to enter in this tab is the name of the food or supplement.

Step 2 - Food Name

Step 3 - Macronutrients

The image below shows the third tab in the Food Wizard. We calculate the Food Energy value by multiplying the gram weight for protein and fat by Atwater values (protein = 4 kcal per gram, fat = 9 kcal per gram) and adding the result together. Enter the following values:

Food Energy 200 kcal
Protein 5 grams
Fat 20 grams
Fiber 5 grams
Water 7 grams

Step 3 - Macronutrients

Step 4 - Amino Acids

The image below shows the fourth tab in the Food Wizard. Since the guaranteed analysis lists no values for amino acids, we leave this tab blank.

Step 4 - Amino Acids

Step 5 - Fatty Acids

The image below shows the fifth tab in the Food Wizard. Enter the following values: 

EPA 6.25 grams
DHA 4.1 grams

Step 5 - Fatty Acids

Step 6 - Minerals

The image below shows the sixth tab in the Food Wizard. Pay attention to the units. Enter the following values:

Sodium 0.63 g
Chloride 0.15 g

Iron 85 mg
Copper 9 mg
Zinc 160 mg
Manganese 30 mg
Selenium 0.18 mg

Step 6 - Minerals

Step 7 - Vitamins

The image below shows the seventh, and final, tab in the Food Wizard. Pay attention to the units. The Vitamin A value is listed in International Units (IU). PDD accepts values for Vitamin A from either an animal (retinol) or a plant (beta-carotene) source. We chose to enter the Vitamin A value as "IU as retinol." PDD also accepts values from Vitamin E as natural or synthetic. We chose to enter the natural Vitamin E value (IU as D-Alpha-tocopherol). Enter the following values:

Vitamin A 21,605.319 IU as retinol
Vitamin D 2,204.624 IU
Vitamin E 903.896 IU as d-alpha tocopherol

Thiamin (B1) 3 mg
Riboflavin (B2) 3.3 mg
Niacin (B3) 16 mg
Pantothenic Acid (B5) 15 mg
Pyridoxine (B6) 3 mg
Vitamin B12 0.06 mg

Folic Acid 0.6 mg

I'm trying to find the right supplement for my homemade meals (cooked) and adding a few to the DB via the food wizard to see which checks off the most boxes. Would this product work with a cooked diet?

We don't promote these supplements that we blog about on our website. These supplements were chosen because a) our clients asked about them, and b) they are somewhat difficult to enter into the database; meaning that additional calculations are required.

Having said that, there is no reason why this supplement cannot be used in a cooked meal. After the meal is cooked, mix in the supplement just before serving.
