Dr. Cathy Alinovi



Dr. Cathy Alinovi DVM — author, speaker, and retired integrative veterinarian — knew she wanted to be an animal doctor at nine years old. She began her veterinary education at the Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine and also holds a Master of Science degree in Epidemiology from Purdue, but quickly realized that conventional medicine met some, but not enough of her patients’ needs. Rather than settle for what she knew was falling short of meeting the demands of her growing practice, she became certified in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy, Veterinary Food Therapy, Veterinary Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Therapy, Reiki, and Aromatherapy. Now retired from private practice, her commitment to pets hasn’t waned and she looks forward to impacting many more pet patients through her books, research, speaking and consulting work.
