Additional Information:
Growing animals can be fed free choice. Mature primates will consume approximately 1 lb. of diet per 35 lbs. of body weight (3%) per day.The correct quantity fed is one that maintains an appropriate body composition as assessed by the primate professional.

It is not necessary to provide a supplemental source of vitamin C with this diet, if the diet is fed within one year of the date of manufacture. It is also not necessary to supplement this diet with fruits or vegetables that may upset the balance of the diet. Great care should be taken to limit the amount of fresh produce fed, as many of these food items are very palatable but have limited nutritional value to the primate. Primate professionals may want to use fruits and vegetables in limited quantities as a behavioral enrichment experience.

Most primates will readily accept ZuPreem Primate Diet Dry. If the animal is reluctant to accept the diet, the biscuits can be soaked in fruit juice to increase palatability or to improve mouth feel. Remove any unconsumed moistened food within four hours.

Because of the complementary nutrient profiles, Primate Diet dry can be mixed with ZuPreem Primate Diet canned if a diet with a different texture or moisture content is desired, or for variety.
