Next, send all medical record information and lab work testing to our email:

Please include all relevant summaries from any specialists this pet has also seen.

We will ask you to approve a “Veterinary-Client-Patient-Relationship” VCPR form which confirms your relationship with the client and gives us permission to work with your client directly as a consultant to you. This form will be sent via email to you for easy e-sign approval.

After the consultation is completed (within 10 business days of the client’s appointment), we will send you a copy of the nutrition recommendations provided to your client via email for the pet’s medical record.

I know it is difficult to squeeze in this discussion with the loaded, busy day we are all facing in veterinary medicine. This conversation can also be a difficult one to navigate as pet owners may already have strong feelings and misconceptions about pet food nutrition. The mission of Whole Pet Provisions is to assist you and your clients by providing qualified, unbiased nutritional expertise for both balanced, whole foods homemade pet food formulation, but also commercial diet selection if needed. We want to meet the pet owner where they are and provide recommendations that are appropriate for the pet within the context that they can accomplish. We can support you by handling your client’s nutrition questions!  Share our website with your clients and they can request a nutrition consultation directly.
