Every dog food out there has their fat content at a minimum because some fat has to be in there, but a minimum percentage leaves it wide open for the manufacturer to add in as much fat as they want. Since mainstream foods wouldn't sell if they caused a lot of dogs to get sick, they probably do have approximately as much fat in the food as they state. But when a local butcher packs their ground together, that is not their main source of revenue and just their way to recoup costs with their scraps. My guess that they just don't have the feedback they need to know not to put so much fat in, although I'm sure there are butchers out there that have had enough feed back and they regulate their "raw product" a bit more.
