Dietetic feeds

Dietetic feeds distinguish themselves by their particular composition or method of manufacture of both ordinary and medicated feed. The regulatory rules regarding dietetic feeds are included in the European regulation 767/2009/EC. The law means the following under ‘particular nutritional purpose: ' the purpose of meeting the specific nutritional needs of animals whose process of assimilation, absorption or metabolism is, or could be, temporarily or irreversibly impaired and who can therefore benefit from the ingestion of feed appropriate to their condition’.

All authorised Dietetic feeds within the EU can be found in the list included in the annex to Directive 2008/38/EC.
