It has been recognised that nutritional status is considered the 5th Vital Sign by the World Small Animal Veterinary Association, yet providing nutritional assessment and incorporating diet into patient treatment plans isn’t common practice. Using an evidence-based approach, explain how nutrition provides a crucial role in the management of patients in critical care scenarios (i.e. hospitalised patients in ICU care, compromised medical states, surgical recovery, etc.) for a holistic approach to patient management with a focus on nutrients commonly found in commercial pet foods.
