Abstract

Physiology affects metabolism, but there is a lack of large-scale studies investigating the effects of different physiological factors on canine metabolism. We utilised generalised linear models to study how age, breed, sex, sterilisation status, size, diet type, and fasting time before blood sampling affect serum concentrations of 119 metabolite measurands in over 2000 pet dogs. This dataset contains input files and code for the analyses.
