10) C

Bodyweight (bw) = 1kg

Since the cat has a weight less than 2kg, basic energy requirement = 70 kcal

The cat is in post trauma.
So maintenance energy requirement for post trauma = 70 x 1.3 = 91 kcal/day

It is being fed CCFR which has 1 kcal/ml. Since the cat requires 91 kcal, it is being fed 91 ml of CCFR.
Protein in 91 ml CCFR = 0.06 x 91 = 5.46 g
The cat’s protein intake is 5.46 g/day

Since the cat does not have hepatic or renal failure, its protein intake should be the maintenance level, i.e. 7 g/100 kcal
Recommended level = 7 x (91/100) = 7 x 0.91 = 6.37 g

Difference = 6.37 – 5.46 = 0.91g

The cat’s intake is 0.9 g too little.
