In this update of the 2000 and 1995 editions, Case (College of Veterinary Medicine, U. of Illinois, Urbana) and scientists at Proctor & Gamble Pet Care, Ohio, draw on recent research to introduce the basic principles of nutrition, the specific nutrient requirements of these companion animals, and feeding and disease management tips at all life stages (e.g., for obesity, diabetes, cancer). In discussing the types, production, and regulation of pet foods, they add new information on organic, natural, and vegetarian/vegan products, and raw diets. The handbook includes updated tables on the energy requirements of adult dogs and cats, standard weights for dog breeds by sex, and a glossary.
