It’s written primarily for a professional audience, but a layperson can definitely learn a lot (I did) from Ann Wortinger’s new book, Nutrition for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses.  If you want to learn more about what your animal needs to thrive, especially if that animal is ill or convalescing, this book will help you.  And it’s especially topical now,  with the pet food recall still expanding, and pet parents worrying over what exactly constitutes proper nutrition for their animal companions.

I’ve known Ann for years, first in her role as a veterinary technician, and have seen my own cats benefit greatly from her diagnostic skills and compassionate care. Now she’s teaching at Wayne State University in Detroit, continuing to serve animals by training those who will treat them.  Brava, Ann.
