European Pet Food Industry Federation updates Nutritional Guidelines

Updated guidelines include new ratios for nutrients for dogs and cats

The federation's new nutrition guidelines have newly defined ratios because “calcium and phosphorus are essential minerals for healthy skeleton development and maintenance,” the federation said.
