Nutritional Consultancy

Nutrition is one of the most important things that we can do to support the growth and health status of our pets and sadly is often overlooked. As veterinary professionals it's just as important for us to educate ourselves as it is to educate our clients.

Here at Bendigo Pet Vets we LOVE nutrition and will take the time to find out what your pet’s need are. We know that not one diet will suit every pet and it's important to us that we take the time to find out what your needs are as well as your pet.

Choosing what to feed your best furry friend is a very personal decision and we understand many owners have their own reasons for choosing what they feed their pet, whether it’s Dry, Moist, Wet, Rehydratable, Homemade, Cooked or Raw.

There is an overwhelming amount of diets to choose from in today's market and there is just as much information available at our fingertips on why one is preferred over another. While there is a lot of great information, there is also a lot of misinformation and in some cases dangerous information on the internet surrounding pet food.

Some of the condition’s nutrition can make a HUGE difference

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Pancreatitis
  • Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (Crystals, Stones, Mucoid Plugs)
  • Skin Issues
  • Digestive issues
  • Heart issues
  • Joint problems (Arthritis)
  • Cognitive function (Brain health or Doggy Dementia)

Benefits of a nutritional consult

  • Better management of a disease process leading to a better outcome and a happier patient (and happier owners)
  • Tailor made plans suited to YOUR pet and taking your needs into consideration
  • Better Pet Owner understanding of the condition - how we can help and what role nutrition plays
  • Preventing or pre-empting concerns prior to onset
  • Improving those waistlines – like weight watchers!

An initial consult will last 30 mins! This gives us an opportunity to take a full nutritional history and get to know your furry friend a little better! We will then follow up with subsequent visits as required.

We also welcome referrals from other Veterinary professionals. Please fill out a referral form on our website or contact us directly for case discussion.
