Hi, I’m Dr. Jenny Elwell-Gerken (otherwise known as Dr. Jenny). I graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine many years ago, with the goal of just being a cow vet for the rest of my life.
Oh how life changes.
I’d been a vet for just a bit when my own Labrador got diarrhea. And it took me two years to get rid of it! I tried every trick in the book, both Western and outside of the box. It only resolved when, out of pure desperation, I put him on a raw diet (which was completely taboo in my world at the time!).
This got me thinking, and started me on a long and winding journey towards learning more about how alternative modalities fit in with conventional veterinary medicine. Today I use acupuncture, chiropractic care, essential oils, Chinese herbs, diet and supplements, as well as some energy work, to supplement my Western knowledge and provide my patients with the best care possible.
