Nutrition can be easily overlooked when formulating treatment plans for our patients, with the focus often being on pharmacological intervention and other supportive care measures, but it can and should play a fundamental role in the management of most medical conditions, whether it is to support the recovery of acutely ill patients, or for the long term management of chronic conditions.
This learning series with Florence Vessieres reviews the current scientific evidence and nutritional recommendations for some of the most common canine and feline medical conditions so that you can apply these principles in your daily practice and see the difference incorporating nutritional therapy can have on your patients.
