Every company - producer of feed varieties exist with a different composition of the components, and in terms of the usefulness of food they are the same, so you will be able to solve the problem, just try the same food with different composition without changing the schedule and quantity. We successfully use dry food, and recommend this method of feeding. However, the choice between dry food and natural food with added vitamins and minerals is yours. Natural food feeding harder - you have to keep an eye on the balance of macro and micronutrients, vitamins and the ratio of fat and protein.
