The new guidelines were presented at the European Society of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition Congress in Munich last month, in front of an audience of scientists and veterinary professionals. The revised guidelines represent the latest in the FEDIAF’s effort to continually update them to reflect the current state of the science.
“One of FEDIAF’s main objectives is to safeguard the wellbeing of pets by providing well balanced and nutritionally sound pet food through its member companies. That is why FEDIAF has taken up the task of regularly adapting the recommendations for nutrient levels in pet food in close cooperation with independent scientists. This enables the pet food industry to adjust the nutritional quality of complete diets for dogs and cats based on state-of-the-art scientific knowledge.”
— Thomas Brenten, Chair, FEDIAF Nutrition and Analytical Science Working Group
