I saw the first board regarding the original spreadsheet and downloaded Excel Viewer just to see what it was like and I was impressed -- couldn’t wait to see Tikka’s addition to it. big grin Now I’ll download the free version of Excel (thanks, by the way, Fudge) and this upgraded version of the spreadsheet and get familiar with it.

We’re not raw feeders yet, but just as soon as I’m on my own and buying my own food I plan to start preparing to switch them over. This is a great tool you guys have given the raw feeding community and one I’m sure will become invaluable. way to go I only have one question: would this work to figure out approximates for cats as well? I’m not entirely sure how different they may or may not be, which is why I ask.

Hey, Jin wave

The nutritional profile part of the spreadsheet will not work for cats. They have different energy requirements and nutritional needs.

The NRC source that I listed in my last post does have the nutritional table for cats. If you can find the book (check it out from a nearby university library or purchase it), you can modify the spread sheet using the data from the table on pg 366.

Yeah, Josie. So much for the so-called "experts" who say us raw fed dogs are just fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, misguided, fad loving, kibble hating freaks! HA!

Sounds like you are trying to open the link in your browser.... if that's the case, you need to save the file to your computer. If you are on a PC right-click the link and select "Save Link As.." (Or "Save Target As..." depending on what browser you are using). Then open the file using Open Office from wherever you saved it, such as your desktop.

Hey, Arko. Try Kolbe's suggestion and save it to your computer before opening the spreadsheet. You can also right click on the link and click on "Open in New Window" to see if it will open that way, if you haven't already tried that.

Also, can you find someone who has Excel (check with your boss at work even)? Email the link to them and have them download the spreadsheet and save it as an Excel file and email it back. If you have downloaded the program Fudge posted about, you should be able to open the spreadsheet and save it to your computer. big grin
