Mexican Wolf Nutrition


Newton, K. (1995) Nutrition. In: Mexican Wolf Husbandry Manual. Mexican Wolf SSP Management Group. American Association of Zoos and Aquariums


Mexican wolves must be provided with adequate quantities of fresh, high quality feeds and should have access to clean drinking water at all times. Body weight and daily feed consumption records should be maintained on all animals. Care must be taken to provide a diet of consistent composition. Change for any reason should be made gradually; this is of particular concern when transferring animals between facilities. The following are general guidelines; individual animals and situations need to be taken into account when designing diets and feeding routines.
