Leading the way in Holistic, Veterinary Medicine for improved animal health
through Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Diet Therapy, and Nutritional Supplements

Dr. Rachel Addleman, DVM, DABVP, CVADr. Rachel Addleman received her B.S. degree and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. The American Board of Veterinary Practitioners awarded her Diplomate status giving her the distinction of being among fewer than 80 board certified feline specialists in the world.

Relocating to Southern California after completing her doctorate, Dr. Addleman accepted a prestigious, one-year internship with the nation's third largest small animal referral hospital, focusing on emergency and critical care medicine. Following her internship, Dr. Addleman spent more than four years at a Los Angeles small animal hospital and more than two years specializing in feline medicine at a premier Los Angeles cat hospital. In 2007, Dr. Addleman joined Memorial Cat Hospital in Houston, the only hospital in the world with four board certified feline specialists.

After practicing veterinary medicine for over 10 years, Dr. Addleman’s effort to improve animal health led her to study alternative medicine. In 2008, Dr. Addleman became a certified veterinary acupuncturist after completing more than 160-hours of study at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in Reddick, Florida. Today, Dr. Addleman considers herself a true patient advocate, and brings complementary and integrative therapies to patients in the Houston, Texas area.
