Lisa Weeth received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of California, Davis, in 2002. She worked as a part-time emergency clinician in the San Francisco Bay Area and then a full-time associate veterinarian at a general practice in the Bay Area from 2002-2004. In 2004 Dr. Weeth went back to the University of California, Davis, for a Residency in Clinical Nutrition where she completed her training and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Nutrition in 2007.

In 2007 Dr. Weeth and her family moved from California to New Jersey where she joined Red Bank Veterinary Hospital and established the first dedicated Clinical Nutrition Department in a private practice setting. There she worked on a full-time basis with clinicians and pet owners within the Red Bank Network of hospitals as well as with veterianrians outside of the hospital network in the greater New Jersey/New York/Pennsylvania area. She remained at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital for six and a half years growing the department from a single doctor to a three doctor service, but in January of 2014 a family relocation took her and her 2- and 4-legged family (2 kids and 3 cats) to the United Kingdom.

After this most recent move, Dr. Weeth established Weeth Nutrition Services, a veterinary referral service that provides nutrition support to veterinarians and members of the pet food industry. She also currently serves as a Clinical Nutrition consultant for Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Texas, is on the Board of Directors for the American College of Veterinary Nutrition, and recently joined the WSAVA Global Nutrition Committee.
