Fats in the diet of indoor and free-ranging domestic cats

The effect of dietary cadmium on kidney function in cats : a thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Animal Science at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
TLDR
The results of the study showed no detectable effects of feeding the three diets for 6 months; however, an extended trial period may be required to fully investigate the longer term effects of cadmium levels and other dietary factors on the development of CKD. Expand
Nutritional Modulation of Insulin Resistance in the True Carnivorous Cat: A Review
TLDR
This literature review deals with nutritional modulation of insulin sensitivity, focusing on dietary macronutrients, carbohydrate sources, and dietary fiber for prevention and treatment of insulin resistance. Expand
A Comparison of Key Essential Nutrients in Commercial Plant-Based Pet Foods Sold in Canada to American and European Canine and Feline Dietary Recommendations
TLDR
There are areas where manufacturers of plant-based pet foods must improve formulation and/or manufacturing practices to produce products appropriate for feeding cats and dogs, as demonstrated in laboratory analyses of essential nutrients. Expand
A cross-sectional study of owner-reported health in Canadian and American cats fed meat- and plant-based diets
TLDR
Cat owner perception of the health and wellness of cats does not appear to be adversely affected by being fed a plant-based diet, and owners perceived no body system or disorder to be at particular risk when feeding a plant -based diet to cats. Expand
A importância do planejamento nutricional na alimentação de cães e gatos domésticos ao longo de seu ciclo biológico: Uma revisão
O fornecimento de uma dieta balanceada aos caninos e felinos contribui para promover uma boa qualidade de vida. Em vista disso, para a elaboração de uma dieta adequada, deve-se considerar asExpand
Abundance and Compositions of B-Vitamin-Producing Microbes in the Mammalian Gut Vary Based on Feeding Strategies
TLDR
The potential importance of microbes in the vitamin homeostasis of various mammals, especially carnivorous mammals is uncovered, with implications for understanding the microbial interactions that contribute to the nutritional requirements of animals held in captivity. Expand
Amino Acids in the Nutrition, Metabolism, and Health of Domestic Cats.
TLDR
Meeting dietary requirements for both EAAs and NEAAs in proper amounts and balances is crucial for improving the health, wellbeing, longevity, and reproduction of cats. Expand

Cats require more dietary phenylalanine or tyrosine for melanin deposition in hair than for maximal growth.
TLDR
Dietary concentrations >18 g total aromatic amino acids/kg diet promote a greater ratio of PTCA:total melanin in hair, unaware of a secondary nutrient requirement being so much greater than the requirement for growth. Expand
Dietary L-carnitine supplementation in obese cats alters carnitine metabolism and decreases ketosis during fasting and induced hepatic lipidosis.
TLDR
The protective effect of a dietary L-carnitine supplement against fasting ketosis during obesity induction is demonstrated and the level of diets in cats with low energy requirements, such as after neutering, and a high risk of obesity could be recommended. Expand
Idiosyncratic nutrient requirements of cats appear to be diet-induced evolutionary adaptations*
TLDR
The nutrient requirements of domestic cats support the thesis that their idiosyncratic requirements arose from evolutionary pressures arising from a rigorous diet of animal tissue. Expand
Net protein oxidation is adapted to dietary protein intake in domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cats adapt net protein oxidation at these levels of protein intake, and the reason for the high dietary protein requirement of this species is, therefore, unclear. Expand
Carnitine: A Review
TLDR
Preliminary evidence reveals that feline hepatic lipidosis may result from a relative carnitine deficiency and may respond to supplementation, an important characteristic that may be important to the treatment and prevention of obesity in dogs and cats. Expand

Comparison of the bacterial flora of the duodenum in healthy cats and cats with signs of gastrointestinal tract disease.
TLDR
It is indicated that healthy colony cats and pet cats have high numbers of bacteria in the duodenum, including highNumbers of obligate anaerobes, and bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine is not a common clinical syndrome in cats with chronic nonobstructive gastrointestinal tract disease.

TLDR
Because mild to moderate hyperglycemia is well tolerated by cats receiving insulin but hypoglycemia can be life threatening, conservative insulin dosing is recommended. Expand
