DVM, GDip VCHM, CVA, CVSMT
Dr. Jessica Tartof is an Integrative Veterinarian who received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She has practiced in both equine and small animal Western and Eastern medicine. She became certified in Veterinary Acupuncture (CVA) through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
She earned her certification in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (CVSMT) through the College of Animal Chiropractors and the Healing Oasis Center.
A post graduate diploma in Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine (CVCHM) was obtained through the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies.
Dr. Tartof pursued training in alternative therapies to get to the root of a problem instead of simply treating the symptoms, which are the warning signs of larger deeper issues. Treating the symptoms, is like cutting the top of weeds instead of digging them up at their root. The symptoms will keep coming back. Alternative therapies allow patients to have more treatment options as “one size fits all” doesn’t work for every patient. She also has a soft spot for working with geriatric and blind patients, improving their quality of life and helping to soothe their aches and pains to keep them moving.
When not in the clinic she is kept busy with her twin baby boys Kedrick and Arden, retired therapy dog Piper, ‘The Blind Wiggle Butt’ and Taylor the Kittian cat.
