Animal shelter and protection centers are establishments managed by public or private entities, whose objective is to collect and temporarily care for lost, abandoned or stray dogs and cats, until their recovery by the owners, their delivery for adoption or their euthanasia as last resource. Law 4/2016 on the Protection of Companion Animals of the Regional Government of Madrid (Spain) establishes, among other aspects, the obligations of animal protection centers with respect to animals in foster care, being the correct nutrition of the animals one of its fundamental points . Oxidative stress is a consequence of the accumulation of reactive oxygen molecules and reactive nitrogen molecules along with other free radicals. Factors involved in the production of free radicals and reactive metabolites in dogs include physical exercise, certain pathologies, as well as the presence of psychogenic stress. Under conditions of oxidative stress, a diet with antioxidant activity could be a method of restoring cellular metabolism and neutralizing excess free radicals. To date, there are two studies in dogs that have shown an increase in tissue oxidative stability and a decrease in oxidative stress through supplementation of a diet rich in antioxidants. The objective of this study was the evaluation of the impact of a diet enriched in compounds with antioxidant activity on the markers of oxidative stress and inflammatory cytokines in long-stay dogs housed in an animal protection center.
