Ken Tudor, DVM
Dr. Ken Tudor has practiced general and emergency small animal medicine since graduating from the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. He has also served as a Veterinary Medical Officer for both the United States Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
In addition to serving as director and primary instructor for the Mt. San Antonio College Veterinary Technology Program, Dr. Tudor has graduate training in exercise physiology/sports nutrition and has instructed classes in those subject areas at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. He is also a member of the American Association of Veterinary Nutrition. This career interest in nutrition and fitness prompted Dr. Tudor to leave general practice and develop Pet Weight Management, a veterinary practice focused exclusively on pet weight loss and management. He also co-founded the "Trim the Pack" Dog Weight Loss Campaign, an organized effort to help fight the national dog obesity epidemic by offering readily available weight loss strategies and tips to pet parents online.
Dr. Tudor has been published in the veterinary journals Feline Medicine and, more recently, Veterinary Medicine. He is a frequent guest speaker on the subject of pet weight management and nutrition.
Dr. Tudor is completing work on Basic Dog and Puppy Care: the little manual that takes a big bite out of the cost of owning dogs, and Basic Cat and Kitten Care: the little manual that takes a big bite out of the cost of owning cats. Also in the works is a recipe book of homemade diets specifically formulated for the unique nutritional needs of dieting dogs.
Dr. Tudor lives in Claremont, California with his wife of 42 years, Marsha, and provides frequent boot camp/doggie day care for his Boston Bull Terrier’s grand puppies, Socrates and Baxter (see photo). His alternate passion is the stock market and company analysis, especially small Chinese companies. He is a contributing analyst for internet "small cap" websites.
