Most pet dogs and cats are fed and thrive on commercial diets. But it is perfectly feasible for these animals to maintain good health on home-prepared foods, if their owners have a basic understanding of the special nutritional requirements of each species.
The principles and practice of food preparation for dogs and for cats will be outlined in this presentation, with emphasis on the differences between these species in their nutritional requirements.
During this course participants will:
- Understand the basic principles of animal nutrition.
- Learn the importance of special nutritional requirements of each species.
- Develop the ability to formulate diets from commonly available foods to meet the nutritional requirements of dogs and cats.
