NEW! - 2012 update of Nutritional Guidelines Cats and Dogs
13 July 2012
Nutritional requirements for cats and dogs are different to human requirements and between cats and dogs there are significant differences - a cat is not a "small dog"...
Since the 1980s, FEDIAF has been working on establishing levels of nutrients to satisfy the requirements of cats and dogs; these Guidelines are used by companies to formulate their recipes. Science evolves, new data is constantly available and several updates have been published over the years.
Also for the 2012 revision, FEDIAF collaborated with eminent scientists from academia forming the Scientific Advisory Board. The Scientific Advisory Board will continue advising on how further improvements can be done to ensure that the FEDIAF Guidelines are continuously updated and reflect the state of the art of science.
