Pet food is a fascinating area and with the extensive experience with nutrition and feed for carnivore animals, Lassén Feed Consult ApS now offers qualified advice for this industry.
A well-balanced and complete diet is vital to the health and well-being of your pets. Each life stage has its own specific requirements for nutrients, which is why it is important that the feed covers the animals’ specific needs for nutrients for reproduction, growth and for a long and healthy and active life.
The feed must also be well balanced so that nutrition-related disease situations are avoided. These can be caused by either a shortage or an excess of a specific nutrient in the feed.
Our specific knowledge about your pets’ needs for vital nutrients is partly based on our experience from scientific experiments with mink and foxes and partly from a number of research reports on dogs and cats as well as recommendations from FEDIAF.
Effect of processing
Pet food comes in many different forms and the treatment to which the food or raw materials are subjected affects the nutrients in the finished food. A heat treatment can both increase the availability of nutrients, but also result in the proteins becoming less accessible to the animal. Regarding this subject we have a lot of knowledge and experince from research with heat treated feed ingredients intended for feeding minks.
