FEEDING DIRECTIONS
The NuZu® Feeds Mega-Herbivore Diet has been formulated by Ph.D. level animal nutritionists to satisfy the nutritional demands of captively managed mega-fauna specifically Asian and African elephants. This product should be supplied at approximately 0.10 to 0.20 percent of body weight as a single component in a comprehensive feeding program. All components of the feeding curriculum should be considered, prior to deciding on a final ration. All roughage sources, including grass and alfalfa hay and browse should be analyzed for nutritional content. Proper analytical procedures will allow for a more complete evaluation of the dietary profile and assist in developing individual and appropriate supplementation procedures.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Elephants can differ significantly both within and among species. Factors such as body weight and condition, general health parameters, physiological status and the potential for physical exercise necessitate that feeding programs be multifaceted and if necessary individually formulated. The range and scope of these differences may vary however, and it is recommended that feeding systems for captively managed elephant herds be reviewed and or formulated by a qualified comparative animal nutritionist. In addition, it is recommended that husbandry professionals become familiar with the basic gastric anatomy and physiology of the species in their care.

 

Final Diet

Individual ration quantities, i.e. the amount of grain fed per animal and per day, should be supplied according to factors such as species, age, physiological status and individual health status. All of these parameters, in addition to the nutrient profile of all roughage sources, may affect the amount of grain required by your animal to meet its individual nutritional demands. It is highly recommended that you consult with a qualified nutritionist or veterinarian prior to establishing dietary procedures for any exotic species.
