Our Veterinary Nutrition Team
Laura Gaylord, DVM, DACVIM (Nutrition)
Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist ®
Dr. Laura Gaylord has been a general practitioner for over 24 years, working in integrative and holistic veterinary practices and those including canine physical rehabilitation.
She has always had an intense interest in nutrition and wellness, both personally and professionally, and she decided to put that passion into action by pursuing board certification in veterinary clinical nutrition through an alternative tract residency program at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
She is currently an independent consultant that is not beholden to any pet food company, rather she selects and recommends diets and nutrition plans based on what is best for each individual pet. Dr. Gaylord has a special interest in homemade diet formulation, whole foods, sports nutrition, wellness and integrative practice, senior care, western veterinary herbal therapies, and supplements to support optimal health.

Siobhan Bridglalsingh, DVM, MHEd., PhD, DACVIM (Nutrition)
Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist ®
Dr. Siobhan Bridglalsingh attended the School of Veterinary Medicine at The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus in her home country, Trinidad and Tobago. She completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM) in 2005 then took a position as teaching assistant at her alma mater that marked the start of her life in academia. Since then, Dr. Bridglalsingh has spent over 10 years in clinical practice at the veterinary teaching hospital.
Her interest in veterinary education led her to complete a Masters in Higher Education Teaching and Learning but later on, questions about veterinary nutrition and effects of food processing caused her to pursue a PhD at The University of Georgia (UGA), Athens, Georgia, United States. In 2020, she returned to Trinidad where she resumed her duties during the Covid-19 pandemic until she returned to UGA in 2021 as the first resident in veterinary clinical nutrition with their newly developed full service.
This research is focused on advanced glycation end products, pet food processing and effects on companion animal health. She is an independent consultant who believes that pets are individuals and their diets should be tapered to their unique needs. Dr. Bridglalsingh has returned to The University of the West Indies as a Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, to provide clinical service to pet parents and to continue research into the effects of processing on nutrients and animal health.
