FEDIAF also works closely with numerous other recognised authorities such as the American Association of Food Control Officers (AAFCO) plus internationally respected nutritionists, vets, biochemists and animal behaviourists, in order to keep up to date on the latest science and feeding requirements of pets.
In addition, FEDIAF's Scientific Advisory Board has issued a statement on nutrition of senior dogs - with a view to extended life expectancy of pets this statement was seen as important to explain the nutritional requirements of senior dogs. Please download the statement here.
As for cats and dogs, FEDIAF has developed Nutritional Guidelines for Pet Rabbits. Please click here for the FEDIAF Nutritional Guidelines for Feeding Pet Rabbits.
