About the course

In this course the topics for consideration will include pet food analysis and labelling.

Pet owners are often bewildered by the information on pet food packaging and veterinary staff require the knowledge and skill set to translate this data into everyday language. You will also review pet food choices, discuss raw diets and the impact of feeding on behaviour.

This module includes case studies and a wet-lab so that you will have an opportunity to practise nutritional calculations using a wide range of commercial pet food products.

This course can be attended as an individual module or part of our Nurses Certificate programme in Small Animal Nutrition.
