Dr. Kori Dreitlein grew up in the Denver area and graduated from the Tufts University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. She and her husband moved to Montrose soon after graduation and have lived here for almost 20 years. After working as a general small animal veterinarian in Montrose and Grand Junction for many years, she was able to follow her special interests in geriatrics, neurology and pain management and became certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture (cVMA) through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians program in 2013. She started a small mobile acupuncture practice in Montrose and soon realized there was even more she could do to help our senior furry family members as well as those recovering from surgery and injury.
Dr. Kori believes that learning is a life-long endeavor and is always striving to improve her skills and knowledge to help our pets. She achieved her certification Canine Rehabilitation Therapy (CCRT) through The Canine Rehabilitation Institute and has just recently finished her certification in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (CVSMT) through the Healing Oasis Wellness Center.
Treating pain, improving functional mobility, helping to break the cycle of arthritis and helping pets recover with less pain and dysfunction from injury or surgery is her passion. Her goal is to help your pet by decreasing their pain and improving their comfort, function and quality of life to help your pet live a better, longer and happier life.
Dr. Kori loves providing mobile Acupuncture and Rehabilitation Therapy to pets in the Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel Counties. When not traveling the region helping dogs and cats feel better, she enjoys spending time in the mountains hiking, biking and skiing with her husband, two children and German Shepherd, “Summit”.
