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.
