Vitamins in animal theory and zoo practice: influence on animal health and welfare, with guest speaker Dr Lauren Samet, Animal Nutritionist, Chester Zoo, UK.
This talk aims to provide a roving scope on vitamins for those new to the subject or for those that wish to brush up their knowledge and learn more about practical aspects of ensuring their appropriate supply to an animal. Somewhat predictably covering the key vitamins (A-K), this talk will discuss their roles in the body and what can influence function, both inside and outside the body within various spp. whether that be other nutritional factors, the environment or the practicalities of storage. It’s a mammoth topic but by picking out some of the key concepts in this area it is hoped to encourage interest in what is essentially a molecular biology with a giant influence on an animal’s health and welfare.
