Nutrition management is one of the most impactful ways to mitigate disease and help clients keep their pets healthy for years to come. But pet owners don’t always look to their veterinarian as a source of nutrition guidance and information. Learn how to make your veterinary team the preferred nutrition resource for your clients. Discover the ins and outs of implementing a nutrition management program in your practice, including how to collect nutrition history, promote proper nutrition, demonstrate the behaviors that support healthy diet, and make personalized recommendations that meet the needs of each patient.

Camille R. Torres-Henderson, DABVP, DACVIM (Nutrition), attended Colorado State for her undergraduate and veterinary education. After she earned her DVM in 2001, she went into small animal private practice in Albuquerque, NM. She joined Community Practice at the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital in 2008, and earned her feline and canine DABVP certification in 2011.
As a general practitioner, Dr. Torres-Henderson has observed the power of preventive medicine. Seeing how preventing disease can be so much easier for a pet than treatment led her to explore the effects of obesity on companion animals and nutrition’s role in obesity management. Her enthusiasm for nutrition in multiple areas inspired her to seek additional training in the field of nutrition at CSU, and she became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine- Nutrition in 2021.
