Lauren Samet
Animal Nutritionist

BSc (Hons) MSc
PhD Candidate

I am an animal nutritionist with a BSc (Hons) degree in Biological Sciences and an MSc in Animal Welfare with distinction. Both degrees provided me with an opportunity to become immersed in the field of animal nutrition, and have resulted in my involvement in a number of research projects. I am presently studying the use of nutraceuticals to improve captive animal welfare. I have had several roles within the animal industry (including those related to equine and canine behavior and husbandry) and have taught both practically and theoretically in animal science programmes at degree level.
Lecturing in animal nutrition combined with my PhD research and passion for welfare, led me to my current role as a Zoo Animal Nutritionist.

When VitaPaws™ contacted me to become an ambassador for their brand, I saw it as a great opportunity to promote the need for good nutrition within companion animals to help support their health and welfare.

All supplements designed for animals within the UK must adhere to regulations from the FSA, EFSA and FEDIAF amongst others. The Pet Food Manufacturers Association (PFMA) is also a useful resource for those pet owners wishing to learn more about what they should feed their animals. As with humans, a sound diet and an appropriate level of physical activity are fundamental to the vitality and longevity of animals.

Supplements can also have an important role in supporting good health, and it this understanding that first prompted VitaPaws™ to develop their range of innovative and high-quality products. It is important that if you have any queries or questions to contact the friendly VitaPaws™ customer service team and/or seek advice from your veterinarian.
