  • Instructions for the following questions:

    • The “amount” provided must be measured by weight, as obtained using using a gram scale
    • For each food item the the total weight of each ingredient fed daily
    • All food items will be assumed to be group fed, even if separate feeding location , because of the opportunity for cross-over, and consumed in equal amounts by all animals, unless otherwise specified.

    Possible scenarios to troubleshoot:

    • Unlabeled cup or scoop: First measure the amount held in that cup/scoop - for example, “½ scoop” may actually represent a true 1 cup, as measured. Then weigh the volume of diet item held within that container.
    • Abstract unit of measure (e.g. “one handful”), take one handful of the item and obtain the gram weight of that handful 5 days in a row. If different individuals are doing the feeding, make sure that each individual’s handful is represented. Then calculate the average weight (grams) per handful by summing the gram weights from each of the 5 days, and diving by 5. Provide that average weight as the “Amount” below.
  • Describe all brands, product names, amounts, and frequency for ALL commercial foods offered as a part of regular diet.
