Dr. Kluslow graduated from UW-Madison with a B.S. in both Zoology and Conservation Biology and a Certificate in Environmental Studies. She spent 5 years working in prairie and wetland restoration, but eventually realized that while it was very rewarding, she did not have passion for it.
She went back to Veterinary School and graduated from the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Within a couple years of practicing at a traditional small animal practice, she was feeling like “there must be more!” So, she began her undoubtedly lifelong journey into certification in holistic modalities, including veterinary acupuncture and spinal manipulation, canine rehabilitation therapy, Chinese herbal therapy and TCM food therapy (pending certification).
She has practiced in the Milwaukee area since graduating and recently moved out into the country to be closer to Madison and her family. When not working, she enjoys giving presentations on pet wellness issues. Aside from work, she mostly enjoys time outdoors with her husband including camping, hiking, kayaking, paddleboard, and snowshoe. When forced indoors, I enjoy metal working, knitting, and pilates and doga!
