Effects of two models of nutritional intervention on homebound older adults at nutritional risk.
TLDR
The malnourished participants in both groups took longer to affect positive change in nutrition measurements, with the New MOW group showing the most improvement over the 6-month measurement period, while functional change appeared to be related more to BMI and age than to treatment intervention.
Evaluation of canned therapeutic diets for the management of cats with naturally occurring chronic diarrhea
TLDR
Both therapeutic diets resulted in a significant improvement in average FS and diet Y also resulted in significantly better results compared with diet X, confirming the value of dietary change in the management of chronic diarrhea in cats.
The Role of Nutritional Interventions in the Longevity and Maintenance of Long-Term Health in Aging Cats
TLDR
On average, cats eating the diet containing the nutritional blend lived significantly longer and showed significantly slower deterioration in a number of clinical health parameters compared to cats fed a standard adult maintenance control diet.
Seasonal and diurnal melatonin production in exercising sled dogs.
TLDR
Sled dogs by nature are elite athletes and therefore exercise was a focus in the study, and dogs at both latitudes show a reduction in peakmelatonin levels with exercise, and winter melatonin levels in both locations were higher than the summer.
Characterizing behavioral sleep using actigraphy in adult dogs of various ages fed once or twice daily

Effect of Nutritional Interventions on Longevity of Senior Cats
TLDR
Cats fed the diet with the antioxidants vitamin E and β-carotene, dried chicory root, and a blend of n-3 and n-6 fatty acids lived significantly longer than cats fed the control diet.
Effect of age and feeding schedule on diurnal rest/activity rhythms in dogs
