What Will You Learn?

With each cat food on the market proclaiming to be the best, it can be hard to decipher which one, if any, really is. The Feline Nutrition Diploma Course provides insight into cat nutrition – outlining what they need in their diet, how to make high quality, nutritionally-balanced cat food, how to modify diets to help cats with dietary concerns or health conditions, and how to feed pregnant or nursing cats and kittens.

Discover the importance of good nutrition for cats and a range of common health conditions that result from feeding cats a sub-optimal diet.

Explore the macronutrient needs of cats – their protein, fat and carbohydrate requirements – and the functions of amino acids and enzymes. We’ll also look at micronutrients – learning which vitamins and minerals cats get from their diet and which they produce themselves.

Learn how to calculate a cat’s individual energy requirements – the total number of calories it needs per day – and understand a range of dietary concerns and how diet can be adapted to alleviate symptoms.

Discover how to make cat food and the pros and cons of doing so. Follow tips for homemade diets, easy recipes, and pointers for transitioning cats from a dry to a wet diet.

You’ll learn weight management tips for cats with obesity, the common causes of type 2 diabetes and how to adjust a diet to reverse the condition. We’ll look at chronic kidney disease, dietary adaptations to incorporate and how to ensure cats with this condition are drinking enough water. We’ll also study liver disease and dietary adaptations to consider for the condition. Finally, we’ll look at feeding pregnant cats, lactating cats and kittens.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of feline nutrition and why good nutrition is important
  • Become familiar with the macronutrients, micronutrients and water requirements of cats
  • Learn how to make cat food
  • Understand how to adapt the diet of cats with dietary concerns or health conditions
  • Understand how to feed pregnant or nursing cats and kittens
