Steve and Ana are thrilled to be joined by Dr. Sarah Dodd on this episode of Veg Out!

Sarah is a veterinarian with a special focus on companion animal nutrition.  Her studies have taken her around the world:  She has lived in England, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, the US and she is back to Canada where she lives with her happy rescue dogs.

She graduated from veterinary school in 2016. Since then she has pursued her passion in nutrition with a clinical nutrition internship and a Master’s degree at the Ontario Veterinary College. She is currently completing her nutrition residency with the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition And enrolled in a PhD, studying plant-based diets for pets.

Today, Sarah shares her vegan journey with us, talks to us about her research and her practice and she shares the results of both as it relates to supporting companion animals transition to a plant-based diet. This is an insightful and educational discussion.
