Nutrition webinar added to BSAVA Library
A new nutrition webinar has been added to the BSAVA Library.
The webinar, 'The essential ingredients of a good nutritional recommendation', covers the key points that should be considered when offering a nutritional recommendation to a pet owner, including:
- evaluation of the current situation
- the main aims of a nutritional recommendation
- assessment of evidence quality for diet claims
- how the recently released BSAVA Guide to Nutrition can help facilitate meaningful conversations with owners regarding diet.
“This webinar aims to cover the main points to support an evidence-based decision-making process to help vets engage owners in a meaningful discussion about nutrition and provide guidance on the most suitable diet for their pet.”
The BSAVA Guide to Nutrition is an independent guide comprising a series of factsheets for veterinary professionals on four different diet options: commercially manufactured diets; grain-free diets; home-prepared cooked diets; and raw diets.
Each option s accompanied by a factsheet for owners that can be provided as part of the consultation.
The new BSAVA Guide to Nutrition is available through the BSAVA Library (£25; £15 to BSAVA members). Georgia’s lecture on ‘The essential ingredients of a good nutritional recommendation’ can be accessed via the BSAVA Webinar Library.
