From Dr. Eirmann: The most rewarding part of being a veterinary nutritionist is seeing a dog or cat thrive when eating a healthy diet tailored to that pet’s individual needs. I enjoying watching pets become more active simply by losing excess weight. I’m fortunate to be part of a pet’s health care team along with the family and my colleagues at Oradell.
