At a very young age, Dr. Tasha Wilson, DVM, knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. She received her Bachelors of Arts in Science locally at St. Anselm College and in 2005 she accomplished her lifelong dream and graduated from Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada. After she had practiced general veterinary medicine for five years, she started to look into other avenues of veterinary treatment.
“I believe in conventional therapies, but also wanted to offer other alternatives that could bring relief to pets when traditional treatments were not working or when more was needed.”
Dr. Wilson started researching the benefits of nutrition — attending nutritional workshops, talking with veterinary board-certified nutritionists, and even attending manufacturing pet food plants. She started offering client education seminars and teaching her clients about the benefits of proper nutrition and making recommendations based on their health.
In 2016 Dr. Wilson became certified in Medical Acupuncture at Colorado State University. This evidence-based modality allows Dr. Wilson to provide adjunctive therapies to her patients. “If I would have recommended it for my own pet, why would I not offer it to my patients? It’s a great tool to help control pain, and other ailments in pets”.
