You Are What You Eat: Helping Clients With Diet Choices

14 May 2020
Veterinary Technician's Theater
Dietary

Proper nutritional management is one of the most important
factors in managing health and disease in pets. As clients
become more aware of the importance of nutrition in their own
health, they will expect this same higher standard of nutritional
care for their pets. The veterinary healthcare team should be
the preferred, expert source of the best nutritional information
for pets. Veterinary teams that understand and promote clinical
nutrition and demonstrate in-clinic behaviors consistent
with this conviction will benefit their patients, their clients, and
their practices. Proper nutritional management is one of the
most important factors in maximizing health, performance,
and longevity in addition to managing disease conditions.
