Abstract:
On the basis of investigations on digestibility, carried out by the Institute of Animal Nutrition and Functional Plant Compounds at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna during the years 2006 to 2011, the intra-individual and inter-individual digestibility-related differences on cats should be evaluated. The aim of this paper was further, to evaluate these data with regard to the influence of certain values in the diet (crude fat, crude fiber) on digestibility and investigate whether an estimation formula, which relates solely to the fiber content in the diet, has a meaningful apply in practice.
