The four objectives of Health Nutrition

Thanks to scientific and veterinary research, the traditional concept of nutrition, i.e. developing, nourishing and giving energy to the body, now also has a preventive and, in some cases, curative dimension. These new dimensions mark the birth of Health Nutrition.

 

Nutrition has four objectives

1. Develop and maintain the body : Amino acids, minerals, trace elements, vitamins and fatty acids meet the basic nutritional needs for development and maintenance of the body.

2. Supply energy : Fats and carbohydrates are the most important sources of energy for dogs. Cats also depend on protein to absorb energy.

3. Nourish and prevent: Certain nutrients are incorporated into the feed (antioxidants, positive fibers, fibers, essential fatty acids, etc.) to prevent risks such as kidney disorders and digestive problems as well as age-related problems.

4. Nourish and care: Certain nutrients are added to the feed and others restricted to support the healing or convalescence process, helping pets recover from a range of ailments.
