Waltham Pocketbook...
« on: February 03, 2014, 10:50:18 PM »
of essential nutrition for cats and dogs:
http://www.waltham.com/dyn/_assets/_pdfs/waltham-booklets/Essentialcatanddognutritionbookletelectronicversion.pdf

If you can ignore the blatant propaganda (its published by Mars, afterall) it contains some interesting information about certain necessary nutrients, their common sources, and symptoms of deficiency or excess. Just skip the first 8 pages and ignore page 57

At first I thought, "64 pages?!  That's what they call a 'booklet'?  oy!" ...
But then I got started on it, and it wasn't really too bad.  Fairly quick read.    readgif
Most of the info is stuff I've "come across" in bits and pieces through the years.  So, it's nice to have it all in one source.   thumbsup1
I find it very amusing that in almost every nutrient source profile some kind of meat is usually listed... even in the ones that list grains and soy.   ;)
