Zinc and copper concentrations in the plasma and hair of normal cats

Veterinary Record 131(22): 512-513

Zinc and copper concentrations in the plasma and hair of normal cats

Plasma Zn and Cu concn were determined in 24 clinically normal cats (13 neutered males, 11 neutered females aged between 1 and 16 years and fed different proprietary foods) by atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS). Hair Zn and Cu concn were determined in 13 of the cats (8 neutered males, 5 neutered females); hair samples were digested with nitric acid and perchloric acid before AAS. Cats were fasted for at least 12 h before sampling.
