Dietary taurine needs of cats vary with dietary protein quality and concentration



Dietary taurine needs of cats vary with dietary protein quality and concentration



Veterinary Clinical Nutrition 5(2): 18-22



The influence of dietary protein on the taurine requirement of cats was evaluated by analysing the results from several experiments in which taurine status of cats was assessed after several weeks of feeding purified and commercial diets. The diets varied in taurine content, protein source and protein concentration, with some diets cooked or containing cooked ingredients.The quality and concentration of dietary protein affected taurine requirement.
