A dieta de um animal pode afetar o seu comportamento?


Veja esse artigo no magazine "Petfood Industry", que inicia assim:

"Behavior is regulated by neurotransmitters and hormones, and changes in the availability of their precursors may influence behavior. But unfortunately, the effects of nutrients on behavior are largely unknown. Following are examples of dietary nutrients most likely to have an effect on canine behavior:

  • Phytoestrogens, found primarily in soy, may decrease anxiety but increase aggression;
  • Antioxidants may lessen age-dependent cognitive decline in dogs;
  • Tryptophan may decrease canine aggression and fearfulness."Veja todo o artigo clicando aqui.
