NUTRIENTS

PAGE 147

water
Water
  • Is the most important nutrient for any pet! They can go for long periods without food but only a couple of days without water.
  • Keep it fresh and clean!
slide4

How nutrients are used by the body

  • Maintenance- keeping constant; no gain or loss of weight. Usually maintenance rations are high in carbohydratesand fats.
slide6

3. Reproduction- an essential part of reproduction is proper nutrition. Reproductive failures result from poor nutrition.

slide7

a. Reproduction ration contains a large amount of protein, minerals and vitamins. Reproduction requires the LARGEST amounts.

b. Improper nutrition can affect conception rates and breeding ability for males and females.

slide8

4. Lactation- Time during which the female is producing milk and needs the proper nutrients to have a large milk production.

  • Lactation ration- diet high in protein, calcium, and phosphorus.
    • - The same nutrients contained in the milk are the same needed by a lactating female.
slide9

b. Babies that are underweight at birth, or aborted fetuses are often the result of improper nutrition of mother during gestation.

slide10

5. Work and activity:

a. Increased amounts of fats and carbohydrates are needed in a working diet to supply the extra energy needed.

EX)Hunting dogs need special diets because they require energy to chase after game.

slide11

Types of feed and use

PAGE 148

Foodstuff- ingredients humans eat (food)

Feedstuff- ingredients for making animal food

slide13

Palatability- taste, an animal liking the feed its eating.

A feed good in nutrients is no good if it won’t get eaten.

Means the diet is digestible and appeals to animal.

slide14

Feed classification

a. Roughages (or forages) - made up of leaves and the plant’s stems.

b. Concentrates-recommended for small animals as a regular part of their diet because it is high in energy or protein.

slide16

1) High energy diets include: corn, wheat, sorghum, barley, rye, and oats.

2) High protein diets include: soybean oil meal, cottonseed oil meal, and sunflower meals.

slide17

c. Supplements- feed material that contains a specific nutrient.

d. Ration-a feed that contains the right amount and proportion of nutrients.

slide18

Diet- feed amount and type found in a ration that an animal receives.

1) Base on animal needs at time

slide19

2) Vary according to nutrients contained in feed.

3) Includes water

4) Kinds and amounts of nutrients found in feed

slide21

Dogs

Ration for pregnant dogs increase rations as weight increases > should be fed 3-4 times a day

slide23

Food Types

Merits

Drawbacks

Moist (canned)

Tastes good, digestible, with a long shelf life

Most expensive.

Dry

Affordable, reduces tartar build-up on teeth

Storage problem: food can get stale. It can lose some nutritional value.

Semi-Moist

Easy to store, tastes good and digestible

Cost is quite a bit higher than dry food.

slide26

Cats

Need twice as much protein as dogs

10% of diet should be fat and use a commercial feed variety

30% protein needed

slide27

Animal nutritionists recommend 35 to 50 percent protein on a dry-matter basis

Cats should not be fed any vegetables or fruits.

slide28

It is common for people to think that kittens and cats need milk. This is not true!

In fact, large amounts of milk will give your kitty diarrhea.

slide29

In response to consumer demand that pets be fed a proper diet, the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) was formed. Their primary function was to publish feed regulations and ingredient definitions

slide31

Scientific studies have confirmed that 20% of cats are overweight.

Experts consider a dog obese when he or she weighs over 15% of the optimum weight for its species

slide32
Scatter the food to get them to have to eat more slowly
  • Feed only twice a day, no ungoverned meals
  • Decrease their feed amounts by 25%
  • Get creative and exercise your pet
slide34
1.It is best to feed ALL pocket pets apellet.2.If mixing ration, should have a wide range of food.3. Diet needs to be consistent
slide35

Rabbits

Pellet type of commercial feed is best (they will pick out and leave other uneaten if not pelleted)

Avoid feeding leafy green vegetables

slide36

Rabbits have a large stomach for their body size to enable them to eat large amounts of plant material quickly.

slide38

Since their teeth are growing constantly, they need to wear them down and chewing on sticks and hard pellets will keep their teeth in check.

slide39

Salt block: If you are feeding a proper pellet/veggie mix, salt blocks are not a necessary part of your rabbit\'s diet. However, many rabbits enjoy going to a salt block daily -- it is not harmful for your rabbit to do so

slide40

Hamsters

a. Best to use pellet type commercial

b. If mixing ration; should have a wide range of food

c. Diet needs to be consistent

slide42

Avoid foods such as iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, chocolate, raw beans, potatoes, as well as sugary or salty foods. Fresh fruits should be given only as treats, and only in small amounts.

slide43

FOOD BOWL OR NOT?

Hamsters hoard food, if a full bowl is kept then usually they won’t hoard it they think it is their own “stash”

wet tail
Wet tail
  • Diarrhea in hamsters, can be a sign of a bad diet or bacterial infection
slide45

Gerbils

  • Need some green food in their diet
  • Need about 22% protein
slide46

They need small amounts of fresh vegetables>>

Carrots, cabbage, celery, cauliflower and broccoli are recommended and a portion of timothy hay 2-3 times/week is also a good idea.

slide47

Rats

  • Can have dog
  • food substituted
  • Need 20-27% protein in their diets
slide51

FERRETS

Are strictly carnivores

slide52

Ferrets have a quick metabolism and a short digestive system, so need to eat frequently (usually every 3-4 hours).

slide53

Ferrets need a diet that is a minimum of 34-36% protein and approximately 20% fat (and low fiber).

slide54

Ferrets can eat cat food but it is not recommended that this is all they eat.

Need high meat protein, high fat, low vegetable matter diets

slide57

Foods that contain high Vitamin C content = kale, dandelion greens, collard greens and peppers.

Broccoli, cabbage, corncobs, kale, romaine, red leaf, or green leaf lettuce (never iceberg), parsley, spinach and tomatoes are among their favorites.

slide58

The recommended daily feeding requirement of commercial Guinea pig feed would be 1/8 cup of pellets per two-pound Guinea pig.

slide59

Feed your Guinea pig every morning and evening and make sure they have timothy hay throughout the day.

chinchillas
Chinchillas

Diet consists of hay, chinchilla pellets and water

Treats for chinchillas can be dried fruit or yogurt.

Timothy hay is better than alfalfa hay.

slide61

Raisins are also a very big thing for treats for chinchillas as well as dried banana.

  • Dried apricots, papaya, and pineapples are also good.
  • Papaya and pineapple are good sources to help prevent hair balls in chinchillas.
slide62

For pregnant females, give them a some cranberry juice after they give birth to their babies. Some females don\'t have milk for their babies because of lack of calcium in their diet.

slide63

Amphibians

a. Amphibians eat insects and worms (if the amphibian is large enough)

b. Tadpoles will eat pellets of rabbit, dog, or cat food

slide64

slugs

Wood lice

Frozen blood worms

slide68

Feed young turtles a small amount daily or every other day. Adults can be fed every 2 days.

PROTEIN should make up about 50% of the diet

slide69

VEGETABLES make up about 30% of the turtle’s diet

FRUITS make up about 10% of the diet

slide70

Snakes in captivity eat a variety of items:

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Rabbits
  • Guinea pigs
  • Etc…
slide71

Pet snakes are usually fed once every 1-2 weeks. Juveniles and adults for which a relatively rapid growth rate is desired can be fed more frequently.

slide77

Some Lizards are insectivores and only eat insects:

  • Crickets
  • Mealworms
  • Wax worms
  • Earthworms
  • Some Lizards are omnivores and eat insects & vegetable matter
  • Bearded Dragons & Uromastyx
  • Some Lizards are herbivores and only eat vegetable matter
  • Iguanas

Geckos

gut loading
GUT LOADING
  • Insects need to be fed vitamins before you feed them to a lizard.
  • EX)Potato flakes, kitty chow, cabbage, carrots, potatoes
slide82

Birds

Diet mostly consist of seeds

Cereal seeds and oil seeds will do

Fruit & nectar birds eat oranges, grapes, and apple slices

feeding fish
FEEDING FISH
  • Fish can be herbivores, carnivores or omnivores
  • Most all aquarium fish are omnivores
herbivores
Herbivores
  • Plecos, algae eaters, pacus, African cichlids
  • Algae wafers, lettuce, zucchini
omnivores
Omnivores
  • Catfish, mollies, crayfish, goldfish
  • Feed staple flake food diet or pellets
carnivores
Carnivores
  • Betas, needlefish, Jack Dempsey, Oscar
  • Feed a diet of brine shrimp, tubifex worms, bloodworms, feeder fish
slide89

Fish

Should be given a variety of foods so they don’t get bored

slide91

Amount fish eats is relative to temperature of water, kind of fish, and stage of life.

Amount fish is fed should be amount it can eat in a few minutes to avoid contaminating water.

The higher the water temperature the more the fish will eat.
