Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist® Sortable Directory

Balance It® has trillions of free customizable recipes, but there may be cases that need an in-depth individualized consultation. Individualized consultations generally require an in-person examination or a formal case submission including complete medical records and diet history by the referring veterinarian. These consultations by a Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist®, and at times their resident under their direct supervision, usually take at least 2-4 hours of work to complete, and fees are reflective of this comprehensive service. A Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist® specializes in the prevention, treatment, and management of nutritional diseases and conditions affecting animals. To become board-certified, veterinarians complete an internship (or first practice extensively) and then enter a formal and structured residency for an additional three to six years of advanced research and training. Some also complete an additional graduate degree (MS or PhD) in nutrition or veterinary biochemistry. This is followed by an in-depth credentials review process and a rigorous examination administered by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) or in Europe the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ECVCN). Passing this examination grants the status of Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (DACVIM) (Nutrition) or of the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (DECVCN). One of the rarer veterinary specialists, a Board-Certified Veterinary Nutritionist® is considered a world expert in veterinary nutrition and typically works at referral hospitals, veterinary schools, premiere pet food companies, or government agencies.
