Do you feel 24% protein is sufficient for a 2 yr lab female who in this off season is not extremely active...take her out once a day for work & play for about a half hour......at 48 lbs (smallish I know but heck of a retriever) & feed just over a cup twice a day. She is definitely not thin. Currently feeding Diamond " High Performance" at 24% but see they have blends up to 30 & 32% protein...Thanks...

I wouldn't feed Diamond but...

I feed a 24% protein diet in similar quantity to a 60# female. That is pretty active year round.

If she's maintaining a desireable weight, has the necessary endurance for the activities requested of her, and no ill effects (good stools, no gas, etc). Then I'd say its ok.
