  1. Notes: a PF Pre-feeding, CL Cellulose, BD Beet pulp, RB Rice bran. bThe values were based on as-fed basis and provided from Purina Mills, LLC (St. Louis, MO) except where otherwise mentioned. All diets were formulated by the manufacturer to meet or exceed AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) requirements for macro and micronutrients for dogs. cThe values were calculated, based on the latest (as of March 2005) ingredient analysis information by Purina Mills, LLC (St. Louis, MO) except where otherwise mentioned. Since nutrient composition of natural ingredients varies, analysis will differ accordingly. dPF diet; ingredients: ground corn, ground brown rice, poultry by-product meal, poultry meal, corn gluten meal, dehulled soybean meal, animal fat preserved with BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), poultry fat preserved with ethoxyquin, wheat middlings, poultry digest, calcium carbonate, dried whole eggs, dried beet pulp, brewers dried yeast, soybean oil, dicalcium phosphate, salt, lecithin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, choline chloride, potassium chloride, menadione dimethylpyrimidinol bisulfate, biotin, cholecalciferol, vitamin A acetate, di-alpha tocopheryl acetate, inositol, DL-methionine, folic acid, calcium pantothenate, thiamin mononitrate, ethoxyquin, nicotinic acid, riboflavin, cyanocobalamin, manganous oxide, ferrous sulfate, cobalt carbonate, copper sulfate, zinc oxide, sodium selenite. eCrude fiber. fTotal dietary fibers (TDF), dry-matter basis, analyzed by Dr. George C. Fahey Jr. in the Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL 61801. gAmount of the ingredients was decided by calculation based on the amount of TDF equal to the amount of TDF in the rice bran diet with 10 % full fat rice bran. hProvided the following amounts of minerals and vitamins/kg diet: calcium 10 g, phosphorous 6.6 g, potassium 7 g, magnesium 0.5 g, sodium 4.6 g, chloride 6.7 g, fluoride 48 mg, iron 365 mg, manganese 55 mg, copper 12 mg, cobalt 0.4 mg, iodine 1.5 mg, chromium 2.3 mg, molybdenum 1.23 mg, selenium 0.46 mg, vitamin A 10,900 IU, vitamin D-3 2,200 IU, vitamin E 44 IU, menadione 0.68 mg, thiamin hydrochloride 10.9 mg, riboflavin 4.9 mg, niacin 64 mg, pantothenic acid 20 mg, folic acid 4.0 mg, pyridoxine 12.4 mg, biotin 0.2 mg, vitamin B-12 28 μg, choline chloride 2.1 g
