Dietary advice depends on the animal’s usual diet and current health status. The history should be taken, and physical and laboratory evaluations should be performed to determine patient’s current status. Dogs become less active as they grow older and may lose muscle mass, so they need less dietary energy to maintain their normal weight and condition. 26 • • • • MANUAL OF VETERINARY DIETETICS Dogs need at least 1 g of dietary protein per pound of lean body weight per day to maintain normal protein reserves.
Digestibility of a standard canned diet declined from approximately 84% in 14-month-old cats to 75% in 14-year-old cats. The older cats accommodated to the decreased digestibility by increasing intake to maintain energy balance. The protein requirements of older cats compared with those of younger cats are not known, but relative to other species, cats of all ages appear to have higher protein needs. The vitamin and mineral requirements of healthy geriatric cats do not appear to differ from those of younger cats, so dietary supplementation is not necessary if a satisfactory diet is being fed.
A diet that is appropriate for an animal in one stage of life may not be appropriate for an animal in another. As shown in Figure 4-1, nutrient requirements vary according to stage of life; lactating animals or those in early growth may need four times the nutrients that are required for maintenance of older, sedentary adults. Deficiencies in the nutrient content of diets often become evident only during the periods of greatest nutritional stress, so during these times the veterinarian must take care to recommend the highest quality diet available to the client.
