Updating recommendations last made by the National Research Council in the mid-1980s, this report provides nutrient recommendations based on physical activity and stage in life, major factors that influence nutrient needs. It looks at how nutrients are metabolized in the bodies of dogs and cats, indications of nutrient deficiency, and diseases related to poor nutrition. The report provides a valuable resource for industry professionals formulating diets, scientists setting research agendas, government officials developing regulations for pet food labeling, and as a university textbook for dog and cat nutrition. It can also guide pet owners feeding decisions for their pets with information on specific nutrient needs, characteristics of different types of pet foods, and factors to consider when feeding cats and dogs.

Genre: Medical

Dieses Buch führt Sie systematisch, praxisbezogen und reich bebildert in die Manuelle Therapie beim Hund ein. Es beantwortet Ihnen wichtige Fragen wie diese: Wie erkenne ich, ob das Gelenk oder die anliegenden Muskeln die Funktionsstörung hervorrufen? Wie positioniere ich mich als Therapeut zum Hund und wo fasse ich für eine gezielte Ausführung der Behandlung an? Für jeden Untersuchungsschritt werden die Ausgangsstellung von Hund und Therapeut, Handanlage und Ausführung detailliert beschrieben und bebildert - von der orientierenden Untersuchung, die einen Hinweis auf die betroffene Region liefert, bis zur spezifischen Untersuchung der Gelenke, Muskeln und neurogenen Strukturen. Durch das systematische Vorgehen bei der Untersuchung lernen Sie, Funktionsstörungen gezielt zu erkennen. Anschließend werden je nach Resultat der Untersuchung die passenden Behandlungsmöglichkeiten zu den verschiedenen Funktionsstörungen anschaulich vorgestellt. Neben den Behandlungsmöglichkeiten bei Problemen mit den Gelenken und der Muskulatur, wird auch die Mobilisation von Nerven berücksichtigt. Durch Bezüge zur funktionellen Anatomie werden Sie die Ursache und Auswirkungen von Problemen im Bewegungsapparat noch besser verstehen.

Completely updated content reflects the latest findings in clinical nutrition research.

Home Prepared Dog and Cat Diets

Author: Patricia Schenck
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119949510
Release Date: 2011-11-16
Genre: Medical

Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, Second Edition provides an introduction to nutrition of the healthy dog and cat and an extensive discussion of medical disorders that can be managed in part through diet. Presenting easy-to-follow recipes that can be prepared at home, this new edition of Donald Strombeck’s classic handbook has been completely rewritten by new author Patricia A. Schenck to reflect the latest nutritional recommendations based on current research. New chapter topics include feeding the puppy and kitten; feeding the pregnant or lactating dog or cat; feeding the senior pet; feeding the performance dog; and the role of diet in pets with cancer. Diets are now listed together in a cookbook style for ease of use, and recipes are adjustable for any size dog or cat, allowing exact nutritional values to be calculated. Nutrient content for protein, fat, carbohydrate, and fiber have been provided for every diet, along with the nutrient density. A companion website features downloadable spreadsheets with complete nutritional breakdowns for each recipe. Useful for both veterinarians and pet owners alike, Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, Second Edition is a unique handbook written by an expert in the field providing an introduction to the nutritional management of dogs and cats with easy-to-use recipes for home-prepared diets. Clarification: Calcium Carbonate We’ve had some questions from readers regarding the use of the term “calcium carbonate,” which is listed as an ingredient in a number of the diets found in this book, and therefore wanted to clarify what is meant by this ingredient. Baking soda comes in two forms: sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate. The sodium bicarbonate version is widely available as “baking soda” and is commonly used in baking, but none of the recipes in this book use it as an ingredient. The calcium carbonate version of baking soda is sometimes sold as “baking soda substitute” and sometimes referred to as simply “baking soda.” To avoid confusing sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, any time the calcium carbonate type of baking soda has been used in a diet in this book, the ingredient includes the specific term “calcium carbonate.” There are several manufacturers of calcium carbonate baking soda; for example, Amazon carries the Ener-G Foods product baking soda substitute. Calcium carbonate can also be sold for garden use, which is non-food-grade, so to avoid the use of the garden product in foods, the term “baking soda” was used in this book instead to indicate that readers should be sure to select a food-appropriate ingredient.
