Nutrition can be easy when your patient falls exactly into a specific category for which there is a diet made to help manage that condition. Problems arise when there is not, or the animal is suffering from multiple issues. This day course will cover aspects of advanced nutrition that veterinary nurses encounter in practice, including assisted feeding (and the calculations associated with them), which foods to use in complicated cases, and how to decide on which diet to use. We will look at nutritional assessments and how to decide whether or not a diet is working.
Specific areas to be covered.
• Assisted feeding techniques and nutritional calculations
• Diets for complicated cases
• Decision making and nutritional assessments
