Titel: 
Energy and protein nutrition of companion birds
Auteur(s): 
J. SALES, G. JANSSENS
Samenvatting: 
The general nutrient guidelines developed for companion birds are based on extrapolations of requirements determined for commercial poultry and game birds, the food habits of wild birds, and trial and error feeding experience. The maintenance energy requirements are derived from equations based on wild birds, without taking species-specific differences into account. The protein nutrition aspect is focused on the quantity rather than on the quality of the protein, as determined by the availability of protein and amino acids in different feed ingredients. Suggestions are given for determining the energy, protein and amino acid requirements of companion birds according to the Edinburgh model. Specific practical recommendations on bird diets, however, are not yet available.

Titel: 
The importance of vitamin E in zoo mammals
Auteur(s): 
T. BOUTS, F. GASTHUYS
Samenvatting: 
The chemical structure, metabolism, biological function and general requirements for vitamin E are highlighted. The clinical symptoms, including the diagnosis and treatment of vitamin E deficiency, are briefly discussed for different zoo mammals. The physiological levels of vitamin E are presently available for most zoo animals, and supplementation of vitamin E in the diet has become common practice in zoo and wildlife medicine. Due to this knowledge and adapted supplementation, clinical cases of vitamin E deficiency are becoming increasingly rare.

Samenvatting: 
Since positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission tomography (SPET) have become widely available as imaging modalities, they have been used to perform studies on neuroreceptor physiology and pathophysiology in man and animals. Several neurological and psychiatric diseases related to neurotransmitters and receptor functioning have been investigated. In order to investigate the biological effects of new compounds, this imaging modality is becoming more and more popular in the pharmaceutical industry, since pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of new drugs can now be evaluated in vivo, omitting extensive in vitro examinations. The response to pharmaceuticals can thus be evaluated more objectively than with the more subjective assessment of patient condition based on clinical examination and the interpretation of neuropsychological tests. This review focuses on the technology of this imaging modality and on the nature of the radioligands used for neuroreceptor imaging. A brief overview will be given of the research on neuroreceptor physiology, neuropathology, drug evaluation and substance abuse, with the emphasis on animal models. Future prospects for implementation in veterinary medicine are discussed.

Titel: 
MEAT QUALITY IN THE DOUBLE-MUSCLED
Auteur(s): 
F. Coopman, A. Van Zeveren , S. De Smet
Samenvatting: 
The double-muscled Belgian Blue Beef breed (DM-BBB), being homozygous for the muscular hypertrophy (mh) allele, has meat quality attributes that differ from ‘normal’ beef cattle. These differences are due to this mutation in the myostatin locus. One of these differences is more tender meat, although this characteristic is in fact not observed in all individual animals. Most animals with this mutation have more tender meat, but some DM-BBB animals, especially those with an extremely muscular conformation, seem to have less tender meat. This is perhaps due to minor genes that influence muscular conformation and are at a higher frequency in these extremely muscular animals. Other genes or mutations also influence meat quality properties. Some are definitely present in DM-BBB; the presence of others is as yet unknown. Meat quality can be improved not only genetically, but also by improving feeding, handling and transportation. In current DM-BBB selection, meat quality is not taken into account. If it is to be considered, then selection should focus on the control of extreme meat quality disorders. Environmental factors may have a greater impact on the overall acceptance of DM-BBB meat.
