    A second WATT eLearning online pet nutrition course, "Feeding Management during Growth in Dogs and Cats," was recently approved by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ Registry of Approved Continuing Education program. Veterinary professionals may enroll in the petfood course to earn four continuing education credits.

    "Feeding Management during Growth in Dogs and Cats," developed by Linda P. Case, M.S., provides information about a growing pet’s nutrient and energy needs, selection of a proper diet, and feeding management guidelines that promote good feeding behaviors and support a healthy rate of development. The online course is ideal for pet and veterinary professionals who seek or are professionally required to have a scientific understanding of the unique needs of puppies and kittens between the age of weaning and adulthood. Enrollment includes 60 days of online access and certificate of completion for participants.

    “We are pleased to continue to provide professional development opportunities to the veterinary community,” says Greg Watt, president and CEO. “Continuing education is essential for veterinary professionals and WATT eLearning offers a convenient online platform to help meet that need.”
