What Is a Veterinary Nutrition Consultant?

A veterinary nutrition consultant is an individual with the training and experience to advise pet owners on their pet's nutrition. This can include a pet's diet, metabolism, and treatment of nutrition-based health conditions like obesity and allergies. At Gardenbrooke Veterinary Hospital, our goal is to enlighten and educate you about your pet's nutrition and create a plan that adjusts their diet to accomplish various objectives like losing weight, gaining healthy weight, and avoiding allergic triggers.

We recommend that you bring your pet in to visit our Brampton veterinary nutritionist if your pet has been diagnosed with a nutrition-related health condition or you were referred to us by another practice. You can rest assured that no matter what path brought your pet to us, we'll treat them with the compassion and kindness they deserve.

Our Skilled Animal Nutrition Consultant Services

When you bring your cat or dog in for their initial consultation appointment, we'll begin by conducting an extensive wellness exam. Various abnormal health symptoms are directly linked to underlying conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Once we've either ruled out or established that your pet has an underlying health condition, our team will then move forward with examining what your pet eats and how frequently they eat.

As part of our Brampton vet nutrition consultant services, we'll take the time to create a one-of-a-kind feeding schedule for your pet that establishes what they should be eating and how often they should eat. Once our team has created your pet's feeding schedule, they'll review it with you and answer any questions you may have. It's important to note that you ultimately control your pet's nutrition and that making a change to their diet requires patience and persistence, which is why our team is here for you every step of the way.

Nutrition Consultations FAQs

At our practice, we know how frustrating it can be to have questions about veterinary services that go unanswered. That's why our communicative and friendly pet nutritionist team is here to answer any of your questions. Some of the most frequently asked questions about our nutrition consultation services include:

Do I need a pet nutritionist if my dog is pregnant?

Yes. Just like humans, animals like cats and dogs require changes to their diet when they become pregnant. Not only is it important that your pregnant pet increase the amount of calories they take in, but you'll also want to avoid dietary actions that can cause birth defects like consuming excessive amount of vitamin D. Our team will work with you to determine what foods are safe for your pregnant pet and establish a feeding schedule that's easy to follow and effective at controlling their diet.

Yes. Our veterinary practice regularly consults with owners of pets of all ages, including juveniles and seniors. We understand the unique dietary requirements for each age group, breed, and lifestyle, and can create a feeding schedule that also takes other factors into consideration, like underlying health conditions.

We wouldn't recommend it, as cats and dogs have different nutrient requirements. For example, dogs don't require taurine (a meat-based amino acid) in their diet, but cats cannot produce taurine on their own and can face severe health complications if it isn't included in their diet. If you own dogs and cats, we can provide nutrition consulting for both species that helps them live a healthy and comfortable life.
