There will be two pet nutrition streams: one tailored to veterinary teams and one tailored to other pet professionals. The talks tailored to the veterinary team, which includes clinicians, technicians and student veterinarians, focus on advancing practitioners’ knowledge in key nutrition areas to help them better serve their clients. Topics include pet feeding practices, homemade diets, nutrition assessment, obesity management and communication skills.
The stream tailored to pet professionals, which includes pet store employees, breeders, trainers and any other pet nutrition enthusiasts, covers topics related to nutrition for dogs and cats, alternative diets for pets, information on pet food labels, a virtual tour of pet food manufacturing, and an expert panel on emerging ingredients and sustainability.
