Are you tired of being
asked questions about nutrition that you're not sure how to
- Is this a good food for my pet?
- What ingredients are healthy and safe (what are "byproducts")?
- Should older pets be fed senior diets?
- What should I feed my large breed puppy?
- Which dietary supplements are beneficial?
- Should I be feeding a raw diet?
Are you having trouble deciding which therapeutic diet to use in different conditions and how to read through the marketing for the various therapeutic diet options? And, do these diets actually make a difference for my patients' health?
Do you have questions
about the best, most current and most practical ways to
provide nutritional support to your hospitalized patients?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this conference is for you!
This conference will provide up-to-date information on how to incorporate nutrition into the optimal care of small animal patients. Included will be practical issues of pet nutrition that will help veterinarians and veterinary technicians answer common questions from owners, learn the latest information on optimizing nutrition healthy animals, and enhance the management of patients with acute and chronic illnesses by using nutrition as an integral part of medical care.
