Purina encourages vet nurses to talk more about nutrition – VetNurse News – Vet Nurse

Purina Petcare will be holding CPD talks at its stand at BVNA Congress (7th-9th October) where it will share practical tips for having more collaborative nutritional conversations with clients.

Laura Hughes, Veterinary Nurse Development Manager for Purina UK and Ireland (pictured right) said: “All of our CPD talks on the stand are certified and each 20-minute session builds to produce a comprehensive suite of content on making nutritional recommendations.

“It’s the ideal complementary top up to all the wonderful CPD available at congress.”

“Sometimes nutritional conversations can be difficult, especially around weight management, but behavioral science has given us so many new ways in which to approach those to bring the pet owner on board in a positive way so they can be part of the solution.

“We’ll be sharing more about those evidence-based approaches.

“To support nurse clinics further, we’ll be demonstrating our tool kits in the area of ​​gastrointestinal care and weight management, so nurses can see what is available to them.”

There will also be cupcakes and refreshments at the stand, as well as a competition where every day one veterinary nurse can win a spa day for two.
