Dr. Jodi Van Tine received a Master’s Degree in Cellular Immunology from San Jose State University in 1990. She earned the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from the University of California, Davis, in 1994. She practiced mixed animal veterinary medicine at the Animal Medical Center and Folsom Veterinary Hospital. In 2004, she elected to treat her pet with Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and nutritional therapy. This inspired Dr. Van Tine to pursue a specialization in Eastern Medicine.
Dr. Van Tine received certification in Canine and Equine Veterinary Acupuncture in 2006 and worked as an associate at the Integrative Veterinary Center from 2006-2007. In December 2009, she was the first veterinarian to complete the College of Integrative Therapies (CIVT), earning Certification in Chinese Veterinary Herbal Medicine. She has since also received Graduate Diplomas in Chinese Veterinary Herbal Medicine and Veterinary Acupuncture. She teaches other veterinary professionals around the world through distance learning with CIVT. She unites Food Therapy, acupuncture, and Herbal Medicine with conventional medicine to promote wellness and prevent or treat disease in her patients.
