Sarah Abdood (Alison)
Following undergraduate and veterinary training at Michigan State University, I completed a one-year internship in large animal medicine and surgery at the University of Minnesota. Then, under the guidance of Dr. Tony Buffington at The Ohio State University, I completed a clinical nutrition residency and PhD. From 1994 to 1999, I was a nutrition scientist in Research and Development at the Ralston Purina Company. In 2000, I returned to academia for a 16-year stint at Michigan State University where I served as Assistant Dean for Student Programs and the small animal clinical nutritionist. My entrepreneurial streak includes starting a private consulting business in 2009 and collaborating with Dr. Rebecca Remillard in 2017 to start Pet Recipe Designers. I happily joined the Ontario Veterinary College’s Clinical Studies Department in June 2018 where my focus is providing nutrition consultations for in-hospital patients, teaching nutrition to veterinary students, and collaborating on nutrition projects with faculty and graduate students. Research interests include nutrition support of hospitalized patients, obesity prevention and management, communication skill-building, client adherence, alternative diets, veterinary ethics and welfare issues, and business skills and professional development.
