The foundation and science behind these recommendations is briefly explored, providing the reader with extensive references for further reading if desired. Most of the contributors to this text are nutritionists who are practicing day to day and providing practical solutions for their patients and referring veterinarians.
We envision this text to be a resource not only for the veterinary practitioner but also for students and residents of multiple disciplines. Many veterinary schools and universities are now teaching a course in small animal clinical nutrition, and this text will make a nice complement to such lecture material.
The book commences with an exploration of how nutrition can be integrated into everyday practice in a manner that benefits both your patients and your practice. The chapters that follow include a succinct overview of basic nutrition, energy requirements, and the basics of product guides, pet foods, home-prepared diets, and dietary supplements.
The basic principles of these foundation chapters are then underscored throughout the remainder of the book, which addresses feeding principles and practices in healthy dogs and cats, as well as those in various disease states. The final two chapters provide guidance for assisted feeding in any patient using enteral and parenteral nutrition.
