Summary

The field of Clinical Nutrition continues to grow rapidly. Many veterinarians are now trying to incorporate nutrition into the health management of their patients. Currently the field is expanding at a faster pace than veterinary curriculums. Many practitioners have only minimal exposure to nutritional management education, and representatives of pet food companies provide much of this instruction. As such, there is a real need for an independent text that instructs the practicing veterinarian in the basics of incorporating Clinical Nutrition into their practices. Applied Veterinary Clinical Nutrition fills just this need.
