About the Webinar

Veterinary school training did not prepare veterinarians for the rapid increase in interest and questions about dietary management of pets and the topic of optimal pet nutrition is fraught with controversy. This series of lectures is designed to provide the professional with knowledge and understanding to enable them to safely and efficiently advise clients on feeding their pets a raw diet.

The series is comprised of 4 lectures in total (each approximately 90 minutes in length). Lecture 1 is free for CIVT Veterinary and Veterinary Student members, click HERE to learn more.
