Quality nutrition is a valuable component of complete health care. Nutrition services at CUVS are provided by faculty from Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine who provide consultation for both in-patients and out-patients. In addition, nutritionists spend regular time at CUVS for in-person consultation with clients to develop or adjust nutritional regimen specific to the individual and their conditions.
