Pet owners are exposed to numerous information and marketing claims when buying food for their animal. The brand, the ingredients or the announced nutritional benefits can impact their purchasing behavior and product selection. Once at home, owners mainly evaluate the pet food performance via the quantities consumed and the observation of their animal attitude during the meal.

Emira's study investigated whether the product information presented to a dog owner could influence his perception of his animal’s feeding behaviors thus his evaluation of the product performance.

Dogs’ overweight and obesity issues have noticeably increased during the last decades. Excessive body fat accumulation is a serious health concern that affects dog’s quality of life. One nutritional strategy to fight weight excess consists in limiting food intake by using satiating ingredients. 

Céline will present a new reliable and non invasive method to evaluate the level of short-term satiety induced by different dog foods. This method could help pet food manufacturers validate the performance of their food and substantiate their positioning and claims.
