It shows the substantial developments in knowledge that have occurred in the subject and discusses potential trends. The volume is an expanded, updated and edited version of papers originally presented at the Seventh Waltham Symposium on advances in dog and cat nutrition, held at Queens' College Cambridge in 1985. This is a comprehensively reference volume in a subject which is scientifically challenging and of immense practical importance.
