Composition, digestibility and nutritive value of cereals for dogs



Composition, digestibility and nutritive value of cereals for dogs



Agricultural and Food Science 13(1/2): 5-17



Most dry dog foods are based on cereals, but very little published information and few comparative studies are available on the nutritive value of various cereals in dogs. To determine the apparent nutrient digestibilities and feed values of 5 different autoclave-processed and ground cereals (oat groats, barley, wheat, maize and rice), a digestibility trial was carried out in 12 adult huskies according to a 6x4 cyclic changeover design.
