Pet Nutrition Alliance Nutritional Calculator: Great Tool for Veterinarians and Pet Owners

August 31, 2017

Pet Nutrition Alliance (PNA) has revamped its website (www.petnutritionalliance.org) to make it easier for veterinary health care teams to more effectively use its nutritional calculator for dogs and cats.

The tool is designed to aid the veterinary health care team in making nutritional assessments and recommendations to help their patients maintain or achieve their healthy weight. Information can be shared with clients on a take-home worksheet. The report function generates a summary of the calculation. The website will offer more tools to help veterinary teams address nutrition in pets over time.

Through collaboration with the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), the calculator has also been translated into both Spanish and French.

The CVMA is proud to be of the Pet Nutrition Alliance, along with the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, American Academy of Veterinary Nutrition, American College of Veterinary Nutrition, Veterinary Medical Association Executives, National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, WSAVA and Academy of Veterinary Nutrition Technicians. 

The Pet Nutrition Alliance was created to promote the importance of nutrition in the health of pets worldwide
