Growing attention is being directed toward insects as a novel and sustainable source of protein for pet food. The aim of the study was to evaluate nutrient digestibility of a diet containing black soldier fly larvae as its main protein source. Moreover, the purpose of the study was to compare the traditional <italic>in vivo</italic> total collection method with the <italic>in vivo</italic> marker method and <italic>in vitro</italic> digestibility method. Two isonitrogenous and isoenergetic dry diets containing either venison meal (CTRL...
