Experimental zinc deficiency in adult dogs



Experimental zinc deficiency in adult dogs



Kleintierpraxis 31(1): 21-22, 27-28



Six adult dogs were fed a low Zn-diet (daily Zn intake 0.14 mg/kg body weight) for 14 weeks. Two animals were killed while 4 were given Zn at 0.72 mg/kg body weight/day. During Zn-depletion the Zn content of various organs and tissues was reduced (skeleton -26%, pancreas -21%, liver -11%, plasma -40%). There was pigment loss (head) in dark-pigmented animals. Histological examination of the skin revealed epithelial hypoplasia.
