State of America’s Pet Health 2013
..Dr. Sandi Lefebvre ............................
Debates concerning the Affordable Care Act of 2013 have at times resembled a dog and cat fight. But what about the care we give our four legged members of the family? Are pet parents doing the best they can?
Current research has shown that pet owners are increasing their expenditures of on pet food and products but are not investing in proactive wellness care for their pets. Why treats and not treatments? My guest, Dr. Sandi Lefebvre of Banfield Pet Hospitals will help to answer that question and reveal the results of the Banfield Pet Hospital 2013 State of Pet Health Report.

Sandi Lefebvre obtained her DVM degree from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2003 and went on to pursue a PhD in Epidemiology at the same institution, focusing on the risk of pathogen transmission through dogs visiting hospitalized people. For about 5 years, she worked for the American Veterinary Medical Association as a scientific editor at the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association and American Journal of Veterinary Research. Since February, 2011, Dr. Lefebvre has enjoyed working as an epidemiologist with the Banfield Applied Research and Knowledge team, using data on the millions of patients seen at Banfield Pet Hospitals to provide clinically useful information in support of evidence-based practice within both Banfield and the profession as a whole.
