Why Nutrition?

We are what we eat and this is no different for our pets. Nutrition is the foundation for the health and wellbeing of cats and dogs, and has been highlighted as one of the five vital signs by the World Small Animal Veterinary Association. Join Dr. Mina Hamilton for a talk on the true complexity of nutrition, the importance of getting it right for our patients, what our clients expect us to know and how we can make it a focus of our everyday consulting.

This webinar counts for one (1) CE point.

Dr Mina Hamilton

Dr. Mina Hamilton graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2011 with honours, and started her veterinary career in private practice in north east Melbourne. She spent four years in small animal practice, with a keen interest in reptile medicine and small animal behaviour that saw her introduce an in-home behaviour consulting service for the practice under the mentorship of a veterinary behaviourist. Keen to build on her clinical skills, Mina completed her Masters in Veterinary Studies through Murdoch University in 2015, with the view to begin down the path of specialising in a particular veterinary discipline.

After completing her Masters, she discovered her passion for her role as a veterinarian had really grown around veterinary business acumen and people leadership. Keen to build skills outside of her veterinary technical skills, she sought an industry based role and began with Royal Canin in the role of Scientific Communications in 2015. Since joining Royal Canin, Mina has been in roles relating to various aspects of the business and now leads the team of veterinarians for the Australia and New Zealand business.

Outside of her veterinary roles, Mina is also a qualified Human Nutrition Coach and Personal Trainer with a passion in health and fitness. Mina shares her home in Brisbane with her partner Anthony who is also a veterinarian and practice owner, two Burmese cats, Andre & Louis, and a geriatric Terrier named Phil.
