Communicating the need for diet trials with clients

Long Beach, California convention center

Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD, explains why diet trials can sometimes be necessary and how to talk to clients about it

While at the Fetch conference in Long Beach, California, Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD, sat down with dvm360 in an interview and explained when diet trials are necessary for identifying an allergy. She also shared her tips for discussing diet trial instructions with owners.

The following is a partial transcript of the video.

Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD: Diet trials are tricky, but when we need them, we need them. So when we think something has a food allergy, that's really the only way we can prove it.

My tips as far as communication is just do with a lot. Communication, communication, communication. I also send my clients home with handouts. I think sometimes people are not verbal learners, and they're much better when they read things. So I try to give clients resources that are also on paper so they can take it home.
