The Role of Therapeutic Diets in Veterinary Medicine with Dr. Leighann Daristotle | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts

January 2024

In this VETgirl veterinary continuing education podcast, we interview Dr. Leighann Daristotle, DVM PhD, Director of Professional Services at Blue Buffalo on the role of therapeutic foods in small animal veterinary patients. As veterinary professionals, how do we go about making a nutritional recommendation for complicated cases? As we see more co-morbidities in our veterinary patients as our patients age, we want to know what options we have for therapeutic diets when they have concurrent disease! With therapeutic diets focusing on treating disease indications such as allergic dermatologic conditions to gastrointestinal conditions to kidney disease or urinary-related disease to weight management to diets with chondroprotectives, tune in to learn what your options are!

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Blue Buffalo, makers of Blue Natural Veterinary Diets—clinically proven to offer support for kidney, gastrointestinal, weight and dermatological conditions, with the palatability to deliver the results you expect. Because the most effective prescription diets are the ones pets will eat. Visit bluevetconnect.com for more information.
