Clients frequently ask for advice regarding what to feed their pet, particularly when they develop an illness. With so many different veterinary prescription diets available and so much information on the internet about pet food, it is extremely challenging to differentiate helpful strategies from unsubstantiated claims. In addition, our understanding about the nutritional requirements of companion animals continues to evolve.Why do this course? Nurses are closely involved with all aspects of pet nutrition in small animal practice ranging from providing nutritional advice to clients, running weight loss clinics and providing nutritional support to hospitalised patients. There are a plethora of products, information and claims made about various diets that can be confusing to navigate and understand. This online course will increase your knowledge and confidence about a range of nutritional topics.The webinars will run on the following dates from 12.00pm to 2.00pm London time including a 30 minute registration and familiarisation period prior to the commencement of the lecture.Webinar dates:Tuesday 11th JanuaryTuesday 18th JanuaryTuesday 25th JanuaryTuesday 1st February
