Reduction of the energy density of cat foods by increasing their fibre content with a view to nutrients' digestibility.
TLDR
It was concluded that the addition of palatable fibrous components is the best method for reducing the energy content of food for obese cats, as it maintains a normal level of food intake. Expand
Effect of inorganic and organic manganese supplementation on the performance and tissue manganese content of broiler chicks.
TLDR
No growth retardation or emaciation occurred in either of the groups and the differences in the average absolute and relative organ weights were not significant (P > 0.05), and tissue analysis indicated that the tibia showed the greatest response to Mn, followed by the liver and kidney. Expand
Effect of different fibre types on the digestibility of nutrients in cats.
TLDR
It can be concluded, that not only the absolute fibre content of the food but also the type of fibre must be taken into account when evaluating its possible role as a component of weight loss products. Expand
Large doses of zinc oxide increases the activity of hydrolases in rats.
TLDR
ZnO at high dietary concentration may influence the digestion of nutrients via increased hydrolase activity and significant protein and ZnO interaction on the activity of amyl enzyme in the pancreas, and amylase, trypsin and total-protease in the small intestinal content. Expand
Effect of fulvic and humic acids on performance, immune response and thyroid function in rats.
TLDR
The data indicate that FA content is responsible for the mild hypothyroid effect of humic substances and Humic acid and FA supplementation resulted in strong humoral immune stimulation. Expand
Evaluation of the nutritional value of the amaranth plant. I. Raw and heat-treated grain tested in experiments on growing rats.
TLDR
It was found that the heat treatment of amaranth increased the body weight gain of rats even when the animals consumed diets containing only 10% crude protein, which suggests the presence of a heat-labile antinutritive compound. Expand
Factors influencing the food preference of cats.
TLDR
Food preference does not seem to be connected to one exclusive taste but is significantly influenced by other factors connected to the manufacturing of the diets. Expand
Effect of methionine and its related compounds on rumen bacterial activity.
TLDR
The effect of several methionine sources on rumen bacterial growth was studied using a new methodical approach and the possible bacterial strains which might have contributed to the growth response have been discussed. Expand
Investigations on the effects of Ca-soap of linseed oil on rumen fermentation in sheep and on milk composition of goats.
TLDR
The in vitro trial showed no detrimental influence of Ca-soap on the acid detergent fibre (ADF) degradation, and using feed samples containing Ca- soap to be incubated in tubes, ADF digestion proved to be significantly higher (p < 0.001). Expand
Influence of feeding intensity on corporeal development, body composition and sexual maturity in female rabbits.
TLDR
It could be concluded that the development of body parts of restricted-fed does was unequal and the effect of feed restriction reflected in lower dry matter and fat, and a higher ash and protein content both in total body and in dry matter composition of rabbits at 18 weeks of age. Expand
