Description

Pet owners and veterinary healthcare team workers have access to a great deal of information regarding pet nutrition via the internet, news sources, blogs, etc. Along with this wealth of information comes confusing and often incorrect nutritional information. As veterinary nurse/technicians we need to educate ourselves on proper companion animal nutrition and sort through the minutiae to educate well intended pet owners on what constitutes proper nutrition for their pet. There is a lot of misinformation regarding pet food; veterinary teams should be viewed as the experts when it comes to veterinary medicinal questions, including proper nutrition. This session will review and bust some of the common myths we face.
