About Our Host
Dr. Rachel Fuentes, a 2011 Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine graduate, was working in small animal practice when she realized there was an empty space in her veterinary toolbox. Adjunctive pain management for patients unable to find relief with conventional medication was the missing instrument. As a result, she found her way to TCVM and has not looked back. After completion of her Acupuncture Certification with the Chi University, she was able to integrate Western medicine with Eastern philosophy and techniques into her management of patients. Since 2016, Dr. Fuentes has had the opportunity to perform acupuncture on a variety of animals such as dogs and cats, as well as tortoises, rabbits, snakes, turkeys, and more.
