Low calorie kibble w/o corn?

I just had a request from a friend, who is looking for a low calorie kibble that does not have corn in it.

Any recommendations to the kibble savvy folks here?

I checked - it does! It only has 325 cal/cup. That's significantly lower than their regular forumula which is about 410 cal/cup. Good info, Cheryl!

Many thanks, Cheryl! (and the additional calorie info, Jane!)

I know we were just talking about calories & kibbles at the play date, but I don't remember who said what now. I need documentation! LOL

Solid Gold Holistique Blendz might be a good one with no corn. Here's the link to the ingredients.

After tons of low calorie kibbles for my overweight former brood, I finally went to EVO and my Pom was the thinest he's ever been. It's grain free too. If you look at many of the weight reduction kibbles, they are high in protein and I think it's kind of like the Atkins diet for dogs.

Kimberly, I think I might have mentioned something about lower calorie kibble with you at the playdate.

I am trying Salsa on a bag of Merrick Turducken. It has 357 calories/cup vs. the 409 in Fromm's Salmon. I don't think it is a true low calorie kibble though. It doesn't have any corn and is 5-star rated on dogfoodanalysis.com site.

When I was looking for a new kibble for Lincoln earlier this year, I was amazed at the difference in calories among the different brands. Some were around to 500 cal/cup! Maybe they bathe the kibbles in butter, LOL.
