Coverage of nutritional values: The coverage of some nutritive elements may not meet the recommendation of the National Research Council (NRC) currently in force. For adult animals, this applies in particular to the zinc and manganese levels and for animals in their growing phase additionally to the calcium and phosphor levels. A real lack of these nutritive elements may have consequences on the animal’s health. However, it should be noted that these NRC recommendations consider a bioavailability of these nutritive elements of only 10 to 50%, meaning that it is assumed that 50 to 90% of them are not absorbed by the body. Prompted by this knowledge, the owners of the animal assume that a BARF nutrition plan based on and reproducing the composition of a “natural prey” does not bring about deficiency symptoms, despite the inability to meet certain NRC recommendations, given the fact that nutritive elements are better absorbed. The previously mentioned bioavailability is thus superior to the one considered and given by the NRC.
