Speaker

Lisa Weeth

DVM, DACVN®, Head of Nutrition Department

Dr. Lisa Weeth received her veterinary degree from the University of California, Davis, in 2002. She spent two years in general and emergency practice before returning to UC Davis in 2004 for a Residency in Clinical Nutrition. She completed her residency training in 2007 and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition (ACVN) that same year. In October 2021 ACVN joined forces with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine to become the sixth subspecialty in that larger College so you may notice a change in the letters behind her name from “DACVN” to “DACVIM (Nutrition)” but the training and knowledge are still the same. Dr. Weeth has been in specialty practice offering in-person or telemedicine nutrition consultations since 2007 and since 2018 has been heading the Nutrition Department at Metropolitan Animal Specialty Hospital here in Los Angeles. In addition to her clinical practice, Dr. Weeth serves on the WSAVA Global Nutrition Committee; is on the Executive Board for the American Association of Veterinary Nutrition (AAVN); and is a regular lecturer at regional, national and international veterinary conferences.
