VNC - first of its kind and growing strong after 30 years.

Veterinary Nutritional Consultations, inc (VNC) was established in 1989 by Dr. Rebecca L Remillard as an independent consulting service for professionals and pet owners seeking nutritional advice. VNC opened the web site PetDiets.com in 2000 which was the first to provide teleconsulting services in veterinary nutrition directly to owners for their pets and veterinarians for their patients.  


We are now the largest independent Veterinary Nutrition Service. We have 5 nutritionists all of whom are veterinarians, each having extensive clinical experience and unique specialisms. We offer you the benefit of our independent advice and expertise. Combined, we have 100+ yrs. of clinical practice, research, teaching, industry, and private consulting experiences.

We provide independent nutrition consultations for pets with medical conditions. Customized recipes or homemade recipe assessements for healthy and growing pets is also available through the consultation service.  These services are provided directly to both pet owners and veterinarians using the web. An office visit is not required by us, but may be required by your veterinarian. If the pet has a medical condition, a primary care veterinarian must be in the communication loop. We also have an extensive library of diet and nutritional information and an automated homemade recipe module for pet owners.

We provide patient-specific nutritional information that is in the best interest of your pet or patient. Individualized dietary plans is what we love to do and do it well! We draw upon a vast number of food products, supplements, and services for pet owners and veterinarians because we are not beholden, sponsored or supported by any commercial business, university or government agency, and do not have any merchandise to sell. We offer you the benefit of our independent advice, clincial experience and expertise as we marry the science of nutrition with the art of clinical practice.

"Thank you for giving us a diet recommendation that would comply with our vet's orders for low phosphorus, low protein yet would give her nutrients and energy to sustain and improve her life. It has only been a few weeks but we certainly see a difference and she is clearly very happy to be able to eat a meal on her own. Making her the home cooked meals ensures she does not get chemicals and preservatives that would adversely affect her kidneys." -Maria
