What are the Most Common Nutritional Conditions?
The Clinical Nutrition service commonly sees dogs and cats with complex and/or multiple medical disorders who may require the development of home-cooked diet formulations. Home-cooked diets are commonly used when there is no commercial diet that meets the nutritional needs for a patient, or when commercial diets are not being eaten. For patients that are not eating anything, placement of a feeding tube or parenteral (intravenous) nutrition can be performed.
