Some, but not all, medical problems have a direct nutritional treatment. For those that do, Veterinary Nutrition Care can create a therapeutic nutritional plan that improves your pet’s quality of care.
In other cases, your pet's nutrition is still very important. Disease and injuries take a toll on a body, and sometimes, so does treatment. Your pet needs the right diet not only to get all of the raw materials to live with or fight disease, to recover from surgery or chemotherapy, and to keep the rest of the body working as well as possible, but also to ensure that they receive the right amount of calories. Caloric intake is important in times of injury and illness because it controls complex signalling processes that help to determine whether energy will be used for healing and recovery, or for something else.
Having a sick pet can also be incredibly hard on a pet owner. In addition to vet visits and rechecks, medical bills and rearranging your life to accommodate things, there's also a lot of worry.
“Is he going to be okay?”
“Is she going to need treatment long-term?”
“How much is this going to cost altogether?”
All of these are very common concerns. If you’ve also had the questions “Did I do something to cause this?” or “Was it because I was feeding them ____?,” you wouldn’t be alone either. Veterinary Nutrition Care can help you to understand your pet’s disease process from a nutritional perspective so that you can feel more confident in your knowledge and make informed choices regarding your pet’s care.
Veterinary Nutrition Care will carefully assess your pet’s medical condition, propose direct nutritional therapy where possible, and create a nutritional plan that supports you and your pet through whatever you're going through.
