Welcome to VCA Nutrition!


Nutrition is an important part of every pet’s overall health plan. Feeding a complete and balanced diet provides pets with the essential nutrients their bodies need. In addition, pet owners can improve their pets' quality of life and prolong their lifespan by maintaining a healthy weight. Nutrition can also play a role in management of a number of health conditions, including chronic kidney disease, gastrointestinal problems, pancreatitis, and urinary disease. Pet owners and veterinarians are encouraged to discuss nutrition for health and disease at every visit.

For more complex cases, particularly for pets with multiple medical issues or pets fed home-cooked diets, it can be helpful to consult with a veterinary nutritionist. VCA Animal Hospitals' nutrition team is excited to offer nutrition consultations locally and for pets across the country.
