ABOUT THIS COURSE
Getting the right balance of nutrients is essential when feeding animals. Provide your animals with the right diet to thrive from cradle to grave
As the saying goes, “You are what you eat.” This is as true for our pets as it is for us. But with so many different diets and formulations on the shelves, the world of pet food may seem baffling and overwhelming.
This highly digestible course will help you understand your pet’s dietary needs and give a solid grounding in pet nutrition. The course helps you understand food labelling, how much and when to feed, and not forgetting our smaller furry (and scaly) friends as we pick a path through the maze of pet nutrition.
Food glorious food! You’re on safe ground spotting a steak is not a cabbage, but can you tell proteins, carbohydrates and fats from vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants? Learn nutritional aspects such as:
- Food groups: What foods are made up of
- Types of food: How commercial diets are packaged
- Food labelling: Decode the small print
- Know how much to feed
