Katja Sutherland

BSc (Hons), MSc


Kat completed both her undergraduate degree in Animal Biology and her MSc at the University of Guelph. Her MSc research with Dr. Kate Shoveller focused on the use of commercial dog food feeding guidelines and other owner-related feeding practices that may contribute to obesity in pet dogs. She is currently a PhD candidate under the supervision of Dr. Jason Coe. Kat's research interest lies in how communication about pet obesity between veterinarians and clients may be improved, and the potential application of Motivational Interviewing to weight-management conversations in small animal veterinary practice.
