The Nutritional History Questionnaire
This provides your veterinary nutritionist with all of the information that she needs to make a customized nutrition plan.
The Nutritional History Questionnaire is a web-based form that securely collects the details of your pet's medical and diet history. The prompts are customized based on your answers to previous questions.
It will take a variable amount of time to complete, depending on the complexity of your pet's medical and diet history.
Some things that you can do to make it easier to complete are:
- Be familiar with your pet’s current and past medical issues.
- Know your pet’s medications and supplements.
- Find the exact names of your pet’s current and previous commercial diets and treats.
- Measure the amounts of food and treats given. If you feed a home-prepared diet, measure the amount of each ingredient fed per day, per batch, or per meal.
If you have any questions on completing the questionnaire, or there is additional information that you would like to add, please email Veterinary Nutrition Care.
By proceeding with the Nutritional History Questionnaire, you allow Veterinary Nutrition Care to use your pet's medical and diet history information (anonymously) to contribute to the body of knowledge in the field of pet nutrition. An example of such use could be: a retrospective study of 100 pets with a specific medical condition to determine whether their previous diets affected the severity of their condition. This does not apply to prospective research, where a patient's treatment plan is dictated by a research goal. Prospective research will not be undertaken unless specific (additional) permission is given and possible implications have been discussed with you.
