How To Learn More About Importance of Veterinary Food Safety

The importance of incorporating functional food in veterinary medicine

The Professional Master’s Degree Veterinary Food Safety of TECH trains professionals capable of supplying holistic and integrated care

Priming holistic animal care is of great benefit mainly in their diet that has all the variety of nutrients, vitamins, natural fats, and antioxidants needed to take care of their health completely. For that reason, the Professional Master’s Degree Veterinary Food Safety is focused on the design of functional foods aimed at improving physiological functions. In this way, the diet must be adapted to the characteristics of each animal, considering factors such as size, physical activity, among others.

However, it is important not to confuse functional foods with food supplements, because functional foods are not tablets or capsules, it is food that we find in our daily lives and their positive effect goes far beyond their basic nutritional value by adding specific health benefits for the animals. Also, it helps to guarantee a good physical and mental state, favouring important aspects such as mobility, since the good bone and muscle health guarantees an excellent quality of life.

Research in animal nutrition has led to the discovery of a wide variety of natural antioxidants such as lycopene (present in tomatoes), carotenoids (found in many vegetables such as carrots), as well as omega 3 fatty acids (found in fish, algae and some seeds such as flaxseed), can help prevent cardiovascular diseases, improve learning processes, strengthen the immune system, improve inflammatory processes at the joint and skin level, improve intestinal transit, and prevent diseases of the digestive system.
