Hill's Metabolic Weight Loss Modules
Module 1: Is your patient failing to lose weight? A major cause of this is incorrectly determining ideal body weight. In this session we show you why: communicating to the pet owner that their pet is overweight and learning how to determine ideal body weight (via BCS, BFI and morphometric measurements)
Module 2: How to successfully run a weight loss clinic and troubleshooting common issues (my pet is not losing weight,/begging/treats/losing weight too slowly/quickly)
Module 3: Winning with weight loss: calculating RER/DER with a worksheet and running through the Hill's healthy weight protocol
