What to Expect From Nutrition Services

If your pet is a patient at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals, your primary veterinarian may request a consultation with Nutrition Services. If your animal is not a Cornell patient, your primary veterinarian may make a referral to our service. Once we review your animal's medical records, a clinician or technician from our service will call to ask about your animal's nutrition history and any current diet issues.

We will work with you to formulate a diet for your animal that is complete and balanced, and addresses any health conditions or chronic diseases. We may recommend a commercial dog food, supplements or provide recipes for a home prepared diet.
