Leaving out information can compromise your dog's health in serious ways.
Once your dog grows out of puppyhood, most veterinary visits include scant to no discussion of diet. Sometimes, however, something is wrong that would lead either you or your dogs doctor to prompt conversation about what your pet is eating. Or your dogs primary care vet may refer you to a veterinarian who is board-certified in nutrition because she discovers or suspects your dog has a health issue that requires dietary intervention overseen by an expert in the field. Or you on your own decide to go to see a board-certified veterinary nutritionist simply because youre concerned that what your dog eats might be affecting his overall health.
