Dr. Tom Lonsdale BVetMed MRCVS is a world-renowned retired veterinarian and critically acclaimed author with more than half a century of clinical experience. Graduating from the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, in 1972, he began his career in Nairobi, Kenya, before moving to the UK and eventually settling in Australia. His groundbreaking work began in the 1990s when he raised concerns about the health impacts of commercial pet food on dogs and cats. He discovered that switching to a diet of raw meaty bones could address numerous health issues, particularly dental and gum disease prevalent in pets. This discovery led him to advocate for natural feeding practices and challenge the pet food industry’s profit-driven agenda.

He is best known for his Raw Meaty Bones series of books, which provide accurate information on pet nutrition and dental care. He has been recognised for his contributions with awards like the Dog Writers Association of America’s Best of the Best Book Award in 2023 for his book “Multi-Billion-Dollar Pet Food Fraud: Hiding in Plain Sight.” The book explores the ways in which ‘junk pet food’ manufacturers are said to be fuelling a global pet illness pandemic through the promotion of highly processed pet food. The book reveals what Tom believes are the unscrupulous practices pet food manufactures use to dominate the market in the name of profit and their efforts to ‘control the science’ through governmental lobbying and university partnerships, despite being abundantly aware of the harmful effects of their products.

Tom has been commissioned by Sydney University’s Centre for Veterinary Education to write definitive statements on pet preventative dentistry and the intersection of pet nutrition and medicine. Following his retirement from veterinary practice, he continues to champion the benefits of raw meaty bones for pet health and is committed to exposing the deceptive practices of the pet food industry. Through his books, campaigns, and public engagements, Tom describes problems and provides solutions for improved pet health and welfare.
