Putting a little thought into what you feed your cat s can pay big dividends over their lifetime and very possibly help them avoid serious, painful, and costly illnesses. An increasing number of nutrition-savvy veterinarians, including board-certified veterinary internists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry kibble.

Veterinary Books. Humans have a long and very complex history of association with dogs and cats. This relationship has its roots in domestication and has evolved to exist today in a vast variety of forms. Both the dog and the cat originally served a number of functions for humans.

Metrics details. Obesity in dogs and cats is usually managed by dietary energy restriction using a purpose-formulated weight loss diet, but signs of hunger and begging commonly occur causing poor owner compliance. Altering diet characteristics so as to reduce voluntary food intake VFI can improve the likelihood of success, although this should not be at the expense of palatability. The aim of the current study was to compare the VFI and palatibility of novel commercially available canine and feline weight loss diets. The relative performance of two canine C1 and C2 and two feline F1 and F2 diets was assessed in groups of healthy adult dogs and cats, respectively.
This includes the above quotation, as many scholars can offer no evidence that he ever uttered these words; it is perhaps ironic that much mystery surrounds a man who advocated a disciplined and logical approach to medicine. Reversing a fashionable theory can then be both difficult and unpopular. Nutrition is one of these areas where fact and fiction can often intertwine, so this issue of Veterinary Focus seeks — as always — to present only confirmed wisdom and robust evidence.
