intravenous feeding

The provision of total or partial nutritional requirements intravenously; essential in treating some diseases. It is accomplished by carefully controlling the composition of fluid given with respect to total calories derived from protein hydrolysates, dextrose, and fat emulsions, and the electrolytes, minerals, and vitamins. Patients unable to safely eat have been completely maintained for extended periods via intravenous nutritional support, usually through a major vein, such as the subclavian or the jugular.

feeding of a neonate with food other than its dam's milk.
feeding behavior
difficulty in prehension, quidding, regurgitation through the nostrils, coughing and aspiration are all abnormalities of feeding behavior of clinical importance.
challenge feeding
animals are fed more feed than their present production or growth justifies in an attempt to elicit higher production still.
enteral feeding
see enteral feeding.
force feeding
administration of food by force to animals who cannot or will not receive it, e.g. anorexic animals or weak neonates.
intravenous feeding
administration of nutrient fluids through a vein. See also intravenous infusion.
lead feeding

limit feeding
occurs where grower finisher pigs are fed a specific amount of food in a specific time period versus free access to feed. Limit feeding is common in Europe but not in the United States, except for gestating sows.
feeding module

orphan feeding

feeding pattern
1. the procedure adopted by an animal while eating a meal. May consist of eating concentrates before roughage. Includes nibbling, gorging and sham feeding. See also feeding behavior (above).
2. the program of feeding adopted by the animal's custodian. Includes single, large meals, frequent, small snacks.
pellet feeding
the ration is converted into pellets, logs or bricks. Has the advantage of reducing wastage and facilitating feeding especially with automatic feeders. There is the additional cost of manufacturing.
restricted feeding
used in times of shortage, e.g. during a drought or as a management tool to modify the carcass, especially its fat content, or the milk yield at drying off. Restraint in feeding for animals that receive only stored feeds is simple. There are difficulties in animals that are at pasture or in feedlots on self-feeders. For pastured animals strip grazing is the accepted strategy. In feedlots it is customary to add a feed-aversion agent such as salt or flowers of sulfur to grain ration.
silo feeding
feed stored in a silo is augered out to surrounding troughs. May be grain or ensilage.
feeding trial
assessment of the performance of a particular feed, determined by any of several parameters, e.g. body weight (loss or gain), digestibility, growth rate, palatability, of the feed being fed over a set period of time.
tube feeding
feeding of liquids and semisolid foods through an esophageal or gastric tube.

intravenous

within a vein.

intravenous feeding
see intravenous infusion (below).
intravenous infusion
administration of fluids through a vein; called also phleboclysis, venoclysis and intravenous feeding. This method of feeding is used most often when a patient is suffering from severe dehydration and does not drink fluids because it is unconscious, recovering from an operation, unable to swallow normally, or vomiting persistently. Prolonged feeding of patients with chronic intestinal dysfunction can be accomplished by total parenteral nutrition.
