Improve pet care by providing tailored nutrition plans for pets, strengthen the human-animal bond through thoughtful pet nutrition counseling for people, and support veterinarians in their mission to provide best care for pets and their families.
The three points of Veterinary Nutrition Care's mission statement represent what your veterinary nutritionist considers to be the most important parts of her profession.
Like most veterinarians, Dr. Farcas went to vet school to help animals. Nutrition is the area where she can do this most effectively.
Long before vet school, when Dr. Farcas first became involved with veterinary medicine, was when she discovered the importance of working with pet owners to ensure that they are an active part of a pet's care. This is not only critical for patient care, but also a very rewarding part of her practice.
Helping colleagues to care for their own patients not only increases the quality of their practice, but also increases awareness of veterinary nutrition within the veterinary community, allowing more pets and pet owners to benefit from sound nutritional advice.
