Our main objective was to obtain baseline data on daily metabolisable energy (ME) intake, activity, and risk factors for obesity in a population of 460 privately owned Swedish dogs in 1999. A previously validated mail-and-telephone questionnaire was used (Sallander et al., 2001a). The dogs were of 124 breeds, 1-3 years old, and had body weights (BW) between 1 and 75kg. The ME intakes of this population could be described with the equation ME(intake) (kilojoules, kJ/d)=554BW(0.66) (r(sp)=0.73, P… CONTINUE READING
