Applied Veterinary Clinical Nutrition provides current, clinically relevant nutritional advice intended for use in daily canine and feline practice.  Highly practical, the book emphasizes solutions for integrating nutrition into clinical practice, with introductory chapters covering the foundation and science behind the recommendations and extensive references for further reading.  Written by a group of leading veterinary nutritionists, Applied Veterinary Clinical Nutrition is a valuable resource on the principles of animal nutrition and feeding practices in healthy or diseased dogs and cats.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Nevertheless, this text will still be a very valuable addition to all small animal veterinary practice libraries and would be particularly useful to veterinary students, veterinary nurses and technicians, general practitioners and specialists alike. The text is also priced very competitively and offers very good value for the money.” (The Veterinary Journal, 1 October 2013)

“It would be a valuable addition to the library of veterinary student, practitioners, and academicians.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2012)

“In summary, as a reference for the basics of nutrition and for nutritional therapy of disorders this book is highly recommended for any practitioner working with small animals. Further, it will be an invaluable tool for furthering the education of veterinary students and residents and I hope this is the first of many future

editions as research in veterinary nutrition expands.” (Journal of Small Animal Practice, 1 April 2013)
