Schedule a Consultation
for Pet Owners
How do our nutrition consulting services work?
Step 1: Request Consultation.
To request a nutrition consultation, please submit the information below under “Schedule a Whole Pet Provisions Consultation”.
We will send a passcode to log in to our Client Portal after we receive your request.
Step 2: Register in EzyVet and Complete Medical & Diet History Questionnaire.
Within the Client Portal you will be able to:
- Log into EzyVet (our client/patient portal). Please register as a client and enter your pet’s information. If you have more than one pet, please enter each pet’s information in separately.
- Complete a Medical & Diet History Questionnaire for each pet you register. This will become part of your pet’s medical record.
- If you are interested in a Therapeutic Supplement Review, please complete this form for each pet you are requesting this service. See more information about this service here.
Step 3: Send medical records and your veterinarian approves a “VCPR”.
Contact your veterinarian and request medical records including all lab work/diagnostic testing be sent to email@example.com. If your pet has visited a specialist, we will also want these records sent for our review. We will review this information prior to the scheduled telemedicine appointment that is provided with all nutrition consultations.
As we work as a consultant to your veterinarian, we will also ask your veterinarian to approve a “Veterinary-Client-Patient-Relationship (VCPR)” consent form which gives us permission to partner in your pet’s care and communicate directly with you via email, phone or video conferencing. Our office will send this form directly to your veterinarian to approve via email. We must receive this signed consent from your veterinarian prior to scheduling your appointment.
Step 4: Pay for consultation services.
We will email you an invoice and a payment request for the nutrition services you have selected. We accept all major credit cards and American Express. Prompt receipt of your payment will expedite your consultation and scheduling. Fee Schedule
Step 5: Schedule your appointment.
One we receive payment, medical records and the approved VCPR form, you will receive an email with a link to schedule your consultation appointment. We schedule this via Zoom or alternatively you can request a phone call. Usually, we are able to provide an appointment within one week of receiving all necessary information and payment.
Step 6: Diet formulation, completion of
After your appointment, we will formulate your recipe, research appropriate commercial diets (if requested) and prepare a written plan that we will send to you via email. We will also send a copy to your referring veterinarian. We are usually able to complete this step within 10 business days of your appointment. As we do manage consults for hospitalized patients, we must triage requests.
Step 7: Follow up – after your Nutrition Consultation and Plan is completed.
Our goal is to ensure you understand your Nutrition Plan fully and are off to a good start. We will answer email questions for approximately one month to assist implementation of diet recommendations. As there can be some patients that are very dynamic in their nutrition status requiring longer support, we can set up scheduled recheck consultations for ongoing care and/or troubleshooting continuing nutritional concerns. And certainly, if your pet develops a new medical condition, you should request a recheck nutrition consultation.
Step 8: We are part of your pet’s healthcare team.
Annual or biannual recheck nutrition consultations are recommended to ensure your pet’s Nutrition Plan is still appropriate. An annual recheck is required to maintain a valid teleconsulting relationship.
