Burgess Pet Care strengthens nutritional expertise
Experienced veterinary lecturer and former veterinary nurse Kären Smith has promised to “keep Burgess Pet Care at the forefront of nutrition” as she takes on her new role as Nutritional Advisor at the leading Yorkshire pet food firm.
With 14 years’ experience in veterinary nursing and lecturing under her belt, Kären will provide valuable support to Burgess Veterinary Innovation Manager Dr Suzanne Moyes in new product development and nutritional training for Burgess staff, as well as giving educational talks to vets and retailers at trade shows.
Fresh from her role as Higher Education Course Manager and Lecturer in Veterinary Nursing at Askham Bryan College, qualified veterinary nurse and animal behaviourist Kären says she’s excited about helping Goole-based Burgess stay ahead of the competition when it comes to nutritional expertise.
“Burgess has become the go-to pet food firm for vets and retailers looking for nutritionally sound and specialist food, and I’m excited to be part of that,” says Kären, who was responsible for developing Veterinary, Animal Management and Pet Shop Management courses in her previous roles.

“I loved teaching but I’m excited about getting my teeth into a new challenge and a role that combines all my skills. I’m looking forward to creating new products from scratch and educating more people about the all-important nutritional needs of animals.”
A self-confessed animal lover, Kären won’t just be working for animals in her day job – but also has a menagerie of animals to look after at her home in nearby Rawcliffe, including horses, donkeys, rheas, ducks, geese, chickens, cats and dogs – and even a trio of wallabies!
