Animal Chiropractor, Veterinary Acupuncture
Born and raised in Duluth, Dr. Taryn graduated from Carleton College with her undergraduate degree in biology, then earned her DVM at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002.
Beginning her career at a mixed practice in Wisconsin, she returned to Duluth in 2003 to practice equine medicine. She also began competing in endurance riding, a long-distance equine sport, with her Arabian horse Red. Unfortunately, he developed a nerve condition in his neck and was unable to compete. Looking for a way to treat him, Dr. Taryn began studying acupuncture. In 2008, she completed the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society training course and achieved certification in veterinary acupuncture. Red went on to have his most successful season of his career that year!
From 2008 – 2013, she practiced exclusively acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in the Duluth area, treating dogs, cats, and horses for wellness and performance. From 2014-2018, she based her practice in northern Wisconsin, continuing to provide highly individualized complementary care for her patients of all species across northern Wisconsin and northeastern MN. In 2019, Dr. Taryn and her family relocated to the southwest Metro, and she joined the team at CFE. She is excited to offer acupuncture and TCVM through CFE!
