With many zoos and wildlife parks focused on captive breeding programmes, nutritional aspects on a wide range of mammals are being investigated. With assistance from zoos, we have produced products which provide essential nutrients to improve diets for carnivores and primates. We can also manufacture milk replacers from an exhaustive list of mammal species kept in zoos.

Feed Herbivore Pellets as a supplement to pasture, hay and browse. Feed rate will depend on species, size, energy requirements and quality of other foods consumed. Introduce pellets gradually into the diet to avoid sudden digestive upset. Water intake may increase when feeding pellets, so always ensure that fresh water is available.
