The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) and Hill’s Pet Nutrition will host the Level Up: Nutrition Summit on Thursday, June 16, beginning at 6:00 p.m. EST, where veterinary professionals will learn new techniques to perform more successful nutritional exams, to better educate pet owners and more effectively engage customers in creating and maintaining nutritional health plans for their pets.

While the virtual summit is aimed at the entire veterinary team, it also includes content specifically designed to support veterinary nurses/technicians in taking leadership roles in nutrition education within the practice.

“Nutrition is important to a pet’s health, but pet owners, although well-meaning, are often given the wrong information that can lead to poor food choices for their pet,” said Dana Varble, veterinarian in head of the NAVC.

“That’s why nutrition needs to be assessed at every exam so that the veterinary team can help sort through the plethora of information available and together develop the strategy for the foods and treats that best contribute to the health of the animal.”

The Level Up: Nutrition Summit includes three interactive sessions designed to help veterinary teams incorporate nutritional assessment into every patient visit and effectively educate pet owners to maximize pet health and longevity.

“The free Level Up: Nutrition Summit is another example of NAVC’s commitment to providing all veterinary professionals with access to lifelong learning that benefits the animal health team and animals in their care,” said Gene O’Neill, CEO of NAVC.
