C.A. Tony Buffington, DVM, MS, PhD, DACVN, is a Professor of Clinical Sciences and an Adjunct Professor of Urology at The Ohio State University. One of his primary areas of interest is the role of stress and disease in companion animals and humans. His interests have also led him to study clinical nutrition issues in small animal patients as well as lower urinary tract disorders in cats.
He obtained his veterinary degree as well as MS and PhD degrees in nutrition from the University of California, Davis. He is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Nutrition. He is a frequent lecturer and has authored numerous scientific publications and textbook chapters.
Dr. Buffington resides in Ohio with his wife of 40 years, Terre. They currently are “between pets,” their cat having recently passed away at the age of 19. Their son Adam is a captain (and clinical psychologist) in the USAF, and their daughter Amanda is an actor in Los Angeles. Other than his passion for veterinary medicine, Tony is a longtime cycling enthusiast and still competes in time trial races around Ohio.
