These include high amounts of organic substances, fats, proteins, fibre, pathogens. There is also a large percentage of pharmaceuticals in slaughterhouse wastewater, administered to the animals for veterinary purposes.  These substances create incredibly high BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) and COD (chemical oxygen demand) levels.
