Stephanie Rinehart, DVM
Dr. Stephanie Rinehart will be working part-time for Holistic Veterinary Options with Dr Michelle and Cindy.
Stephanie is a recent veterinary graduate from UW Madison School of Veterinary Medicine. She grew up in southern Wisconsin and joined the military after graduating from high school. After 6 years of active duty, Stephanie returned to Wisconsin to continue her education in the pursuit of helping horses. Along the way, she has sought out training in equine massage, veterinary spinal manipulation therapy, and veterinary acupuncture. Dr. Michelle Weidenkopf is a long time mentor of Stephanie’s and she is excited to be participating in an internship with Holistic Veterinary Options to continue to grow her working knowledge of integrative veterinary medicine.
Stephanie’s passion for helping horses began when she adopted a malnourished, coming 3 year-old Quarter Horse in 2012. Learning to care for his unique requirements and watching a procedure to remove an abscessed tooth sparked a new interest for the veterinary industry. Her personal experiences with chiropractic care and acupuncture are her drive to provide these care options to other animals.
