Every pet is unique. We customize every nutrition consultation to ensure the recommendations are individualized for the pet. The process includes review of received pertinent medical records, detailed diet history and scientific literature. When indicated, we utilize specialized nutrition formulation software to create complete and balanced homemade diets. Our consultation service will analyze the pet’s current diet and give detailed information as to the nutritional management of the pet’s situation. This procedure certifies a complete nutritional plan tailored to the pet.
Consultations for which we charge a fee most often involve conferences with a referring veterinarian or a pet owner. This activity results in a report describing our recommendations that is sent to a referring veterinarian. Because we are a consultation service and do not always have a primary care relationship with pet owners, our services are billed to the referring veterinarian. We have a base fee, but additional cost may be added depending on the amount of time required to complete the consultation. The referring veterinarian typically will pass the consultation cost on to the owner.
After reviewing our recommendations, a referring veterinarian will need to communicate the information to pet owners in light of developments of medical conditions. For specific questions that pet owners may have about our recommendations, we are available for phone conferences.
