The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) will be publishing a new set of nutritional guidelines for for veterinarians later this year. The goal is to “put nutrition in the minds of veterinarians” the president of AAHA was quoted as saying.
We’re encouraged that there appears to be a new push for vets to pay attention to the nutritional component of pets’ health. We hope the new guidelines will be objective and comprehensive. They are expected to be published this summer.
Hills Pet nutrition has provided funding for the developmental task force , and is expected to assist with the implementation of the guidelines, once published.
