Animal nutrition has a crucial role in supporting animal health and welfare. Specialty Feed Ingredients are used in feed and pet food to ensure a safe and appropriate diet. Some of these ingredients can also support the animals’ natural defences against, for example, bad bacteria. Maintaining animals in optimal health limits and prevents the need for veterinary treatments, consequently reducing the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
