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


, : Zinc and copper concentrations in the plasma and hair of normal cats. Veterinary Record 131(22): 512-513

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.
