The key to our pet's longevity and good health is proper nutrition. It is the foundation for all of our dogs/cats biological functions including growth, organ function and healing.
It can be challenging to understand the information provided on pet food labels and furthermore knowing what is and is not necessary in the vital canine/feline diet.
We welcome Dr. Brian Wessels, DVM to de-mystify the dietary needs of our beloved pet dogs/cats as well as explain the ins and outs of label reading. He will provide us with a physiological interpretation of the nutritional needs of our pets, and recognizing the pathologies created when those needs are not met. This lecture on clinical nutrition will teach you the dietary needs of your dog and cat to help you make educated nutritional choices.
Dr. Wessels received his Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree (our North American Doctor of Veterinary Science degree) from the Veterinary Faculty in Pretoria, South Africa. In private practice for 20 years in Pinetown, South Africa, he then received his Masters in Medicine from the Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine in Durban, South Africa, and served at that institution as department head of physiology, biochemistry, and functional histology. Dr. Wessels now resides in northwestern Connecticut, and serves as a nutritional consultant to veterinarians and other private parties, including the Abady Dog Food Company.
This seminar is exceptionally valuable to any dog or cat breeders and of course anyone owning or planning to own a pet dog or cat.
