  During the second half of the twentieth century, as in all other scientific subjects, significant advances related to the domestic animal sector occurred especially. The significant developments in socioeconomic rates of individuals and their lifestyle have resulted in noticeable increases in the interest in pets. With the production of nutritious and advanced foods the domestic animal sector shows innovations. Lifetime pet foods must be nutritionally balanced and healthy [1,2]. Knowing the nutritional benefits of foods currently available is critically important in ensuring a balanced diet for dogs and cats to keep them safe [3].
