Example text

Rhodopsin is a light-sensitive pigment that enables the eye to adapt to changes in light intensity. When exposed to light, rhodopsin splits into retinal and opsin, and the energy that is released produces nerve transmissions to the optic nerve. In the dark, rhodopsin can then be regenerated by the combination of new retinal and opsin molecules. During periods of vitamin A deficiency, less retinal is available to regenerate rhodopsin; thus the rods of the eye become increasingly sensitive to light changes, which eventually results in night blindness.

In addition, microbial synthesis of riboflavin occurs in the large intestine of most species. The quantity that is synthesized appears to depend on both the species of animal and the level of carbohydrate that is fed. However, the extent to which this source contributes to the daily riboflavin requirement of the dog and cat is unknown. Niacin Niacin (nicotinic acid) is closely associated with riboflavin in cellular oxidation-reduction enzyme systems. After absorption, niacin is rapidly converted by the body into nicotinamide, the metabolically active form of the vitamin.

Chief storage sites for iron in the body are the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. Most animals are very efficient at conserving iron, so losses of this mineral from the body are minimal. The iron of hemoglobin is recycled and reused when red blood cells are catabolized, and only minute amounts are lost by renal excretion. As a result, the requirement for iron only increases drastically during periods of unusual blood loss, such as in cases of parturition, major surgery, injury, or severe parasitic infection or gastrointestinal disease.
