While living overseas she started Weeth Nutrition Services, a veterinary referral service that provided nutrition telemedicine to veterinarians and technical support to members of the pet food industry. In August 2016 she and her family moved back to California and Dr. Weeth was able to expand her telemedicine service to offer in-person appointments to patients and their caregivers in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas.
