Adding protein to grain-free foundation diet for senior Irish Terrior

how to calculate how much protein to add to dog's foundation diet to restrict to 18 % or less?

18% would be approximately one seventh of the total amount. So weigh the foundation diet and divide that weight by 7. That would give you the weight of protein to add.

My maths calculations are not perfect! But if 20% would be one-fifth, and 10% would be one tenth, so you want to go just about half way between the two.
