About Dr. Marie

I focus on health plans for furry superheroes.

They come back to living their best active lives."

Growing up, I loved drawing and painting and planned to go to art school. Little did I know that medicine and interpreting animals and their pain would become my best creative work...

By the age of 12 our family had a wild collection of pets: dogs, cats, horses, birds, fish, guinea pigs, rabbits, lizards, chinchillas – even a large donkey!  

In college, I took all the science, animal, and language classes I could get my hands on.

I eventually became an equine vet and got to spend time with olympic level horses doing their body work with chiropractic care, acupuncture, and lameness evaluations as well as non-drug pain management options, like: injections for joint care, stem cell therapy, and shockwave therapy.

And as I walked through the barn, there were the dogs.  I saw that sweet old guy limping around the property with a wag and a smile.  All of a sudden, I saw a new, even larger opportunity to apply this approach and thinking to dogs. 


i had no idea at the time... 

Good Bye Pain Drugs.  hello health plan!

dogs can come back to full lives without having to take tons of medications too.

In the dog world, pet parents and even vets often skip physical recovery and just focus on limiting pain.  My approach is to go beyond surface-level symptom treatment.  I want to improve the dog’s quality of life. 

My study and certification in understanding pain taught me the root causes of pain and how to address them effectively.  I’ve learned that those old slow dogs are not so “old,” they’re often just struggling with pain.

My passion is now bringing old, scared, aggressive, or actively injured dogs back to their best life.  

We all need a little help sometimes and dogs really are superheroes, they need someone with superhero vision to see the pain they hide and to teach you their language. I am here for you, and for the dogs 100%.



This work has been life-changing for me and has changed the lives of the patients and clients I get to serve.

There are specific steps to recovery: 
1.  Pain management - chemical, biological, and physical
2.  Nutritional foundation - the right food and supplements
3.  Strength and conditioning - just like any athlete

Pet parents: I WILL SHARE ALL MY SECRETS.  COME SEE ME.

But first, you will have to be able to recognize when your dog is showing you signs of physical weakness that could be pain or illness related.
