At Fidu, it’s our mission to increase everyday access to board-certified nutritionists in order to benefit pet owners and pets requiring veterinary nutritional support services.
Choosing a diet for our patients and pets can be a complex process that involves considering local economic factors, the availability of certain options, a pet’s unique needs, preferences, and their owners’ personal philosophies.
Nutrition is a critical component in maintaining the overall health and well-being of both dogs and cats, and pet owners often have difficulty determining what is best to feed their pets based on conflicting information.
Due to this uncertainty and lack of clarity regarding pet nutrition, there are a large number of pet owners who would like the input of a boarded nutritionist.
We as veterinarians know that by having the opportunity to offer this to our clients, we can improve the day to day health of pets and extend their lifespan, too.
Fidu believes that increased access to nutritional counseling can help to mitigate and even prevent a variety of problems and diseases, including but not limited to the following:
✓ Internal Medicine issues including urinary/renal disease, gastrointestinal disease, liver disease, and pancreatitis
✓ Dermatology conditions and common skin issues
✓ Orthopedic Issues
✓ Certain geriatric ailments
The Fidu team leverages the latest findings in veterinary science to inform pet owners of how they can better care for and feed their pets. Good nutrition adds to the quality of life while extending lifespans.
