If you want up to date stats on phos levels, you’ll want to contact the companies of interest yourself — a lot may have changed since June, especially with the ongoing shortages.

I can tell you the % of phosphorus on the After Dark pates are exactly the same as what the company provided me directly when I contacted them a couple of months ago.

You may have noted it before, but where is your cat's phosphorus level now? The other thing to consider is phosphorus binders if the level is high.

I agree about phosphate binders if needed. Look for low phosphorous of course but the binders are good.

Which are the binders? There's so many it's really getting hard to keep track of which to look out for.:/

Binders are a supplement to give your cat lieu of low phosphorus foods. You can read up about them and when/why they might be needed here:
Tanya's Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease - The Importance of Phosphorus Control (felinecrf.org)
This web site also has a list of lower phosphorus foods too, but I directed you first to the page that explains how to evaluate phosphorus in cat foods:
Tanya's Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease - Cat Food Data Tables Overview (felinecrf.org)

Thank you! My vet said I had to keep low phosphorous & magnesium due to keeping their (2) urinary oh levels low.:)
