Vet Nurse Alison gains her Certificate in Small Animal Nutrition

16 Mar 2018

Congratulations Alison, what an achievement!

With the growing demand and an increased responsibility for veterinary nurses to provide nutritional support and advice for our clients and their pets Alison embarked on a 12 month course in order to achieve her Certificate in small Animal Nutrition and we are immensely proud to say Alison passed!

The course provided in-depth knowledge of the principals of clinical nutrition, comparative anatomy and physiology, it determined the nutrients required for each life stage in order to maintain optimal health status and considered the relationship between diet and disease as well as dietary management of common diseases.

12 months, 18 modules, 4 case studies and two examination papers later and Alison couldn’t be happier and neither could we! Well done x

Should you need any nutritional advice for your pet please do not hesitate contact us here at the surgery where we would be very happy to arrange a free of charge appointment with Alison to discuss your pets individual nutritional need.
