Meet Dr. Sarah Dodd, Our Independent Veterinary Consultant

Dr. Sarah Dodd

Hello pet lovers!

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Dr. Sarah Dodd and I am a veterinarian with a special focus on companion animal nutrition. My studies have taken me around the world: I have lived in England, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, the United States of America and Canada – where I currently reside with my three happy rescue dogs Peppa, Dottie and Timmy.

I graduated from veterinary school in 2016, since then I have pursued my passion in nutrition with a clinical nutrition internship and a Master’s degree at the Ontario Veterinary College. I am currently completing my nutrition residency with the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition and enrolled in a PhD studying plant-based diets for pets.

My partnership here with Halo as an independent veterinary consultant has arisen from a mutual interest in sustainable, plant-based foods for pets. As a vegan veterinarian, I am not only committed to protecting and promoting animal health, but also to educating pet parents about the possibilities of plant-based diets for their companions. Part of my teaching role is in public outreach, through events, blogs, FAQs and the like, so expect to see more from me!

I look forward to many discussions of pet nutrition here, so please don’t hesitate to contact Halo with any queries you may have – your question may be the perfect blog post topic!

Take care of yourselves and your furry friends,

Dr. Sarah

    Hi, Dr. Dodd.
    I adopted my cat when he was 5. He had a habit of chewing on his feet and belly and a very smart veterinarian said “take him off all poultry”
    He had been free feeding Iams dry food. I took him off that and all poultry. It took me 2 years to realize it was eggs, too.
    Point is, I’d be happy to buy HALO, but there is no Halo canned food without poultry or egg.
    As this is a common allergy, HALO might consider it.

    Hello, I just got a rescue kitten?
    So far she is doing great on a vegan diet. Lots of energy and is growing fast.
    I will take her for neutering about 6 months.
    What are your views on the vaccinations?
    I was given your name from the Vegans Cat FB Page. By a lovely lady.

    I have a really picky Doxie age 7. He will only eat dry dog food from his Kong, which gives him one small meal a day. I have tried everything and his favorite is homemade chicken, veggies,etc. I have used Dr. Jones, the vet on the internet, diets. A friend gave me a case of Halo for a gift, and he is enjoying it somewhat. I still have to mix in chicken,veggies,etc. since a full diet of chicken stew is too costly. Any suggestions? I will appreciate any advice!!!!
