What are the differences between dogs and cats in their nutritional requirements? How can you use this knowledge to better advise owners about how to feed their animals?
Over the past 40 years, the widespread feeding of commercial foods to dogs and cats has diminished awareness of the special nutritional characteristics of these domestic animals. Although commercial foods, formulated to meet the known nutrient requirements of dogs and cats have ensured good nutritional health, there are still circumstances where malnutrition of these species can occur.
The aims of this course are to emphasise the differences between dogs and cats in their nutritional requirements, to draw attention as to how this knowledge can help veterinarians better advise dog and cat owners about how to feed their animals and to awaken an understanding about how nutritional knowledge can assist in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease.
'The Small Animal Nutrition course has been a fantastic way of brushing up on my nutrition knowledge and allowing me to give owners more informed information about diet rather than just advising to feed a complete and balanced commercial food. I learnt as much from the discussion forum as from the module notes - excellent responses to discussion questions really added to the learning experience.'
