    Offering a pelleted diet at 10%–15% of the dry-matter intake is adequate for most grazers if good-quality hay is fed. The amount of minerals and vitamins should be balanced in the pellets in such a way that the total diet (including greens, browse, and hay) should be adequate.   Hantavirus: This disease is mainly a concern with wild rodents, not captive-bred animals, and these are specific species of mice. Tuberculosis: This disease is a threat to mainly old world monkeys (and elephants) but is a debilitating illness that will prove fatal to the animals. TB tests are available and should be given annually for pet s: 8.

    Based upon the feeding strategies and nutrient composition of foods selected by free-ranging animals,8 and their gastrointestinal anatomy, the objectives of a captive feeding program for leaf-eating monkeys are to increase dietary fiber, limit the amount of fermentable carbohydrates both overall and at a single feeding, and disperse feedings in.   The purpose of this article is to identify the potential for iodine concentrations in the diet to contribute to the etiology of FH.

Written in response to the increasing extent to which nonhuman primates are being used as laboratory animals, this report discusses facility design and construction and management procedures for the use of prosimians, new world monkeys, old world monkeys, baboons, and the great apes.

Other items commonly included in primate diets include hard-boiled egg (if cholesterol is not a concern), yogurt, and bread. Grapes, raisins, peanuts, crickets, and mealworms are treat items well liked by most species.

All diet items to be fed should be weighed, and the actual intake recorded. Muscle and organ meat, fruit, most grains and seeds, and most insects are poor sources of calcium, and excess consumption can result in calcium deficiency.

Calcium gut-loading diets containing at least 12%–15% calcium should be fed to insects. Recommended Diet Formulation: Should include: Diet summary should know the information on nutritional, behavioural, and functional needs of the species in the wild and in captivity. feeding habits, gastro-intestinal morphology, normal adult weight of males and females, age at maturity, longevity of the species (in captivity and in the wild.

Attempts are now being made to formulate captive diets based on a combination of knowledge about the wild diet, biology, and known nutrient requirements of the species in question (Lindburg, Author: Ken Kawata. captive animals on protein intakes below those suggested as the requirement.

Future efforts should focus on more complete descriptions of wild diets, analysis of food sources, and comparative digestive physiology, in order to optimize diets for captive birds and ensure availability of appropriate foods for birds in reserves (Sheppard et al., )”.

Most zoos in the USA use nutritionally complete commercial diets to feed exotic felids, canids, mustelids, and viverrids rather than attempt to prepare diets in-house. In other parts of the world, a whole or partial carcass (eg, of cows or horses) may regularly be fed.

Herbivores, such as gorillas, cows, hares, and many snails, eat mainly autotrophs (plants and algae). The Wild Diet Summary by Abel James is a comprehensive book that presents to the audience a guideline for dropping 20 pounds in 40 days.

Body condition (a measurement of animal fat deposits and muscle tone) is an excellent indication of diet adequacy in domestic animals; however, evaluating body condition is often difficult in captive exotic animals.
