Pros and Cons of Becoming a Pet Nutritionist
Pet nutritionists have a variety of career options, including working for pet food companies, veterinarians, or colleges and universities. In research roles with colleges and universities or private companies, pet nutritionists may conduct laboratory tests on nutritional requirements for different types of animals and breeds. Whether you’re a pet trainer, health conscious pet owner, or want to become a professional pet nutritionist, there are pros and cons of each level of education that may be right for you. For instance, someone who completes an online course will develop a significantly different level of expertise than an individual who earns a master’s degree in animal nutrition sciences. Advantages and challenges include:
- Helping pet owners achieve their goals for a healthy, happy pet
- Educating pet owners about nutritional needs for their pets
- Developing better food products for pets
- Time and money needed to earn certification or a degree
- Unclear requirements for various levels and specialties
- Inability to offer medical advice
Most people choose the level of education based on their future career plans in the pet nutrition field. Animals and humans need a certain combination of nutrients every day to function normally, and the goal of a pet nutritionist is to provide an understanding of the proper balance of nutrients essential for healthy feeding recommendations.
