Gudi qualified from Bristol Veterinary School in 2003 and spent three years working in a mixed practice on the Somerset/Dorset border, primarily as a small animal vet.

She moved to ROYAL CANIN® in 2006 and discovered a passion for cat and dog nutrition. She now works within the Scientific Communications department and is closely involved with training, technical support and promoting pet owner knowledge.

She has two cats; Parker is a very affectionate but greedy black and white shorthair and Jinx is a beautiful, sleek grey and white shorthair who likes a quiet life and some occasional fuss. Gudi enjoys spending time at home with her family, including the cats, and talking about nutrition to anyone who will listen!


Please note that our area of expertise is cat and dog nutrition so we appreciate your questions relating to these two species only.

We are fully qualified vets and give daily (both general and very specific) advice relating to food and feeding.  While we may have a general view on other areas of veterinary care and practice, we appreciate that your vet is the best placed to give you specific advice.

Before major changes are made, please be sure to seek advice from your veterinary practice staff who have an active working knowledge of your pet, it’s medical history and any investigations made into their health status.

We look forward to chatting with you on 25th May!
