Dr. Lisa Weeth, board-certified Veterinary Nutritionist joins our ever growing veterinary team

JustFoodForDogs is pleased to announce that Dr. Lisa Weeth, DVM, Dipl. ACVN will join Dr. John Tegzes, VMD, Dipl. ACVT; Dr. Laura Wilson DVM, Dipl. ACVD; and Dr. Oscar E. Chavez, BVetMed, MRCVS, professor in clinical veterinary nutrition and Chief Medical Officer at JustFoodForDogs along with six other staff veterinarians to its wide ranging and growing team of veterinary experts.

Dr. Lisa Weeth is a graduate of the University of California at Davis. She is in fact 100% a Davis success story! She received her undergraduate and doctorate degree in veterinary medicine at the prestigious university, and then completed rigorous additional training through their competitive nutrition residency program to become a board-certified Veterinary Nutritionist. There are only 83 active members of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition (ACVN) worldwide, which makes Dr. Weeth’s expertise extremely unique. “Fresh food diets can be an integral and effective part of the treatment for certain diseases in our companion dogs. I am thrilled to share the knowledge I’ve gained over my years in specialty practice to help enhance the JustFoodForDogs team and the foods they produce.” says Dr. Weeth. “As the whole food movement expands we are proud to have Dr. Weeth, one of the earliest adopters of whole food nutrition, join our group” stated Dr. Chavez, Chief Medical Officer.

This addition further cements JustFoodForDogs’ commitment to a whole-food, vet-centric approach to feeding companion dogs and cats for both health and disease management. With independent university research on its six daily maintenance diets, five large working kitchens open to the public, nine veterinarians on staff, and the only line of locally-sourced whole food therapeutic diets readily available for prescribing veterinarians, in just 7 years JustFoodForDogs has developed a new and innovative way of managing health through the feeding of whole food diets and has positioned itself to bridge a growing divide between pet parents and veterinarians who are looking for an answer to the question,- “how can I feed my four legged family member something other than kibble or canned but that is safer for my whole family than a raw meat diet?”

Dr. Oscar Chavez and Dr. John Tegzes are proud to lead a team of extremely intelligent and forward thinking veterinarians and specialists. As a company, JustFoodForDogs takes pride in working with like-minded, pet-loving partners and veterinarians that help further our mission: more life, more years, and more love with our pets.

    Wow. Vetting this company has been educational. I’ve been working on reversing my 13-y-o Sheperd’s fecal incontinence with my own recipes for 9 months, with good progress. But it was adding your food to the mix that finally is reliably producing perfect stools that she can feel coming, and she’s going out on her own now. Clean diapers, clean butt. Thank you so much. Will be attending your class.

    Is there a specific diet for my Afghan Hound who can afford to lose a few pounds? She is 13 and has lost some of her energy and mobility.

    I love “Just food for dogs” I’m not the only one, Lola, my pup, jumps up in the front seat when i pull up to your store, I can hardy park the car because her tail is wagging wildly in my face. She starts to make noises (like when we are at the beach and she wants out) telling me to hurry up. I open the car door and she is already at the front door of your store, soon as the “just food for dogs” door opens, my pup goes right in and straight to the venison. Who says you can’t teach a old dog new tricks? With the venison in your pocket you can teach your dog to do anything. Thanks Just food for dogs! Your customer service is always a A+ along with your products! You guys do a great job and provide a great service!
