The Veterinary Nutrition Service

The Veterinary Nutrition service is staffed by Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) in nutrition, making each Diplomate a Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist®. Our team also consists of nutrition residents and a technician with a masters in animal science and a Veterinary Technician Specialty in Nutrition (VTS-Nutrition).

We provide nutrition consultation services with a goal to optimize the health of companion animals during wellness and disease through nutrition consultation with veterinarians and pet owners. We continue to advance the field of small animal nutrition through teaching, research, and continuing education. See all of the services that we provide.
