Veterinary Nurses

Friday 20th September 2019

In a busy veterinary practice veterinary nurses are perfectly placed to handle the nutritional requirements of inpatients as well as give valuable advice to increasingly confused clients about what they should actually be feeding their pets.

Starting by looking at how to make a nutritional assessment, the day will move on to cover how to calculate feeding amounts, deciding on the most appropriate diet as well as long term monitoring. Specific nutritional cases will be looked at – how and what to feed, as well as how to successfully set up weight clinics and deal with the obesity problem. Delegates will leave this course with the confidence to give advice to both clients and colleagues on this important but often over-looked part of practice life.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Critical care nutrition, tube feeding.
  • Calculations of RERs once the nutritional assessment has been made.
  • Obesity – what to feed, behavioural aspects and when not to diet
  • Development of nutritional plans – including what to do when clients don’t want to follow your recommendations or the pet won’t eat it!
  • Weight clinics – how to organise and successfully implement in your practice
  • Raw feeding – the facts and the fiction
