A five-part learning series with Nicola Lakeman. Veterinary nurses are perfectly placed to manage the nutritional requirements of inpatients, as well as give valuable advice to increasingly-confused clients about what they should actually be feeding their pets.

Beginning by looking at how to make a nutritional assessment, this learning series moves on to cover how to calculate feeding amounts, deciding on the most appropriate diet, as well as long-term monitoring.

Specific nutritional cases are looked at: how and what to feed, as well as how to successfully set up weight clinics and deal with the obesity problem.
