This text covers the basics of nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals), cellular metabolism, and the principles behind the practices of companion animal nutrition. The final half of the book covers specific biological principles and practices for dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, llamas and alpacas, birds, fish, rodents, and reptiles. It is easy to read, directed to this century’s students, scientifically correct, visually pleasing, and integrates science and the fun of companion animal nutrition. It is written for the student and the teacher, not for the “expert” by the “expert”. Principles of Companion Animal Nutrition fulfills the need for basic animal biology as well as practical companion animal nutrition.
