2007 Section 1 Question 9

9) E

Cat weighs 2kg
Bodyweight (bw) = 2kg

Using the formula (30bw + 70), we get: (30 x 2) + 70 = 130

The cat has sepsis
Factor = 1.6
Using the formula for maintenance energy requirement, we get 130 x 1.6 = 208 kcal/day

The cat does not have hepatic or renal failure.
Using the 3rd table, we get that the cat needs 7g of protein per 100 kcal of energy.
The cat we are talking about needs 208 kcal of energy.

Protein needed = 7 x (208/100) = 1456/100 = 14.56 g of protein.
To the nearest 0.1g, we get 14.6g. So the answer is E.
