Jill Cline, PhD, discusses Science that Sticks with the Prudence Hip and Joint formula.
Dr. Cline is a research nutritionist on the Bergan Health Solutions team. She is responsible for developing and implementing nutritional programs for dogs, cats, and horses that improve the animal’s short term and long term health. Dr. Cline also has an interest in external collaborations relating to the human animal bond, behavior and nutrition.
Dr. Cline received her PhD in Nutrition Science from The University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 1996. During her tenure at U of I, she conducted research on vitamin metabolism in dogs and pigs. While at University of Illinois, Dr. Cline received the JBT scholarship for undergraduate research excellence. The results of her research were used to redefine the vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and vitamin A requirements of dogs.References to her studies can be found in the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) handbook which provides the guidelines for nutrient content of pet foods and in the National Research Center Reference book for Dogs.
After finishing her dissertation, Dr. Cline worked for several years in product development and technical support services. In 1999, Dr. Cline accepted a position in Applied Research with Nestle Purina. Her work in Applied Nutrition focused on the influence of nutrition on skin and coat health and dermatological syndromes. Dr. Cline and her colleagues were the first to define the volatiles excreted in the skin of puppies which give them that unique “puppy smell” that everyone associates with dogs under 16 weeks of age. Dr. Cline’s special areas of interest include skin and coat health and nutrition, exercise physiology and nutrition and the interaction of nutrition, behavior and the human animal bond.
Dr. Cline has lectured on six out of the seven continents and is eagerly awaiting a veterinary nutrition or behavioral seminar in Antarctica. The topics of her lectures have ranged from how to build a kennel to how to manage diabetes in cats and everything nutrition and husbandry related in between. Much of her practical experience comes from volunteering with various foster and shelter organizations over the years and managing her own menagerie of dogs, cats and horses. Dr Cline has published papers on a variety of topics including vitamin metabolism, biophysical measurements of dogs and cats, the canine athlete and the excretion of volatiles from puppy breath and skin.
