Nutrition can affect every system in the body – this is why it is so important to ensure that your large animals are being properly fed.
Nutrition impacts not only an animal’s body condition score, but also many other aspects of an animal’s overall well-being. For example, reproduction can be negatively affected if an animal is underweight, overweight, or if the animal is not receiving the right nutrients. The immune system also relies on proper nutrition to function properly. Poor nutrition can lead to a compromised immune system, thus leading to disease.
