    Ethoxyquin, EQ, is one of the best known feed antioxidants for domestic animal, fish and pet. Its unquestionable advantage is its high antioxidant capacity and low production costs.
    Due to the increased use of this antioxidant it was nominated by FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for carcinogenicity testing [10]. The tests were carried out by Monsanto Company (USA), EQ producer, and after that in 1977 FDA requested for optional lowering of the maximum level of EQ in complete dog foods from allowed 150 ppm (0.015%) to 75 ppm (0.0075%). Meanwhile new studies were started by the Pet Food Institute to determine whether even lower EQ levels (between 30 and 60 ppm) would provide antioxidant protection for dog food [11].
