Basic Nutrition Consult

The Basic Nutrition Consult provides a more detailed answer to your nutrition question in a written form. Basic Nutrition Consults are ideal for veterinarians or clients who have questions about how to feed a horse to manage a particular disease or life stage, but do not want a full ration formulation.

All Basic Nutrition Consults are done after the case is reviewed with the primary care veterinarian. The Veterinary Nutrition Consult Request Form (equine) should be completed and returned before the consult work can be done. Animal owners should also complete a Diet History Form (equine). 

Veterinarians and clients will receive a letter with answers to the general nutrition questions.

Cost: $175 - $225 depending on the complexity of the questions. Estimated cost will be discussed with the client before work is started.

Complete Ration Formulation

With a Complete Ration Formulation, we will gather the horse's medical and diet history and will formulate a ration to manage the horse's unique health needs. The Complete Ration Formulation should be thought of as a diet prescription for the horse, and is designed to meet the nutritional needs of the horse when commercial diets are not available.

All Complete Ration Formulations are done after the case is reviewed with the primary care veterinarian. The Veterinary Nutrition Request Form (equine) should be completed and returned before the consult work can be done. Animal owners should also complete a Diet History Form (equine).

Veterinarians and clients will receive a consult letter explaining the ration, along with the ration ingredients.

Cost:  $300 for a ration formulation, $375 for a growing foal ration
