Small Animal Diet Formulation

Information Consult

Designed to help answer your animal nutrition questions, the Information Consult provides owners and veterinarians the chance to discuss their nutrition questions with a board certified veterinary nutritionist either by phone or through e-mail communications. 

Cost: $60 for 30 minutes or part thereof.

Please contact us for discounted Information Consult rates for veterinarians.

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 Nutrition Consult

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

Owners who are interested in home cooking for their dogs or cats should request a Complete Nutrition Consult to ensure that their pets are being fed a balanced diet. 

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

Veterinarians and clients will receive a letter explaining the diet, along with the diet recipe.

Cost: Small Animal: $175 for one diet recipe, $200 for two diet recipes. Additional recipes will be formulated for an additional cost. Please contact us with questions.”
