Downward Dog: Navigating the Sea of CBD - A conversation with Dr Steph Wenban & health industry luminary Mr Anthony Almada
This was a podcast filmed on Zoom and adapated for audio listening.  What is CBD? What kind of CBD is good? Are there alternatives to CBD? What should I know about CBD? These are just some of the questions covered in this short but deep series on trending topics in the pet world. Anthony is a nutritional and exercise biochemist with an impressive record of industry and academic accomplishments. During his 45 year career, he has earned 3 patents, collaborated on over 50 clinical trials and pioneered entirely new nutritional supplement categories – creatine and thermogenics among them. Along with chairing Front Of The Pack's Science Advisory Board, Anthony is also the founder and CEO of IMAGINutrition, a nutritional technology think tank focused on clinical research, due diligence, and product innovation. Dr Stephanie Wenban -  I always knew I wanted to be a vet and after completing a DipHE in Bioveterinary Science at the University of the West of England I went on to graduate from Bristol University Vet School in 2016 with Distinction. Leaving the Somerset Hills behind, I moved to West London to work in busy vet clinics and hospitals across the City. After 3 years of working as a GP Vet treating hundreds of cats, dogs, rats, rabbits and hamsters I decided to move on to the next challenge. Joining a pet food start-up in 2019 as their in-house vet, I appeared in several newspapers, radio shows and magazines talking about dog health. During this time I also completed invaluable further study into Small Animal Clinical Nutrition, learning how food can complement health and stabilise disease. I left the start-up in January 2020 to set up Pet Wellness Expert and focus on my passion for proactive health. Alongside Pet Wellness Expert I consult as a veterinary advisor and sit on the Science Advisory Board of a US pet healthcare company, as well as being a doting dog-mum to my wonderful Maltipoo Eddie. I am a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and am delighted to have been a ‘Vet of the Year 2020’ nominee.
