Sodium-Bisulfate, Ammonium Chloride, Benzoic and Adipic Acid in the feed for 28 – 52 day old mink kits

Urinary pH should preferably be between 6.0 and 6.6 to avoid crystal formation (Fig. 1) and thereby urinary calculi (Case et al, 1995).
In the present trial we tested the effect of ammonium chloride, Na-bisulfate, benzoic acid or adipic acid on urinary pH when added to the feed in the early growing period.
