Best Practices for Feeding Aged Dogs and Cats
Free Webinar brought to you by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Canada

Who is it for?
Start Date
November 12, 2019


In what ways should we be thinking about diet modifications for older/aging pets? In order to clearly appreciate what our senior or geriatric patients need nutritionally, we must be skilled in conducting a thorough nutritional assessment. This webinar will review key components of a nutritional assessment–one of the most important tools in your tool kit! We’ll also review the nutritional differences between products marketed for ‘senior’ pets and other viable options.

Sarah Abood (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.
