Hello. Welcome to Veterinary Nutrition Care’s blog.

Everyone wants to ensure that their pet receives the very best care, but when it comes to exactly what and how much to feed, that can be difficult.

Good information on what pets need is difficult to find, and it’s hard to determine if a specific diet meets those needs. Feeding a pet can be confusing!

Veterinary Nutrition Care is here to help.


My name is Dr. Amy Farcas. I’m a board-certified specialist in veterinary nutrition; owner of, and veterinary nutritionist for, Veterinary Nutrition Care.

Veterinary Nutrition Care is a new business, providing consulting services to pet owners and veterinarians in the San Francisco Bay area.

My mission statement “Improve pet care by providing tailored nutrition plans for pets, strengthen the human-animal bond through thoughtful pet nutrition counseling for people, and support veterinarians in their mission to provide best care for pets and their families” pretty much sums up what I’m all about. Please feel free to read more about Veterinary Nutrition Care’s philosophy, services, and approach.

​Veterinary Nutrition Care’s blog will highlight common questions and concerns about pet nutrition, as well as current events relevant to how pets are fed. The goal is to bring some evidence-based nutrition to the confusing world of “pet nutrition information available online.” I will also share, with permission, some of my patients’ stories, progress, and outcomes so readers can see some examples of what I do, and why I do it.

I’ll use blog comments as a source for the site’s FAQ page, as well as inspiration for future blog posts. I’d be happy to know what you like and want to see more of, what you want to know more about, and what you don’t find interesting at all- I’ll try to keep those posts to a minimum, but I won’t promise a home run every time.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon.
