Meet our Doctors!

Dr. Alli Dunlop

My love of veterinary medicine began with my grandfather, Dr. Gary Troutman, who was the only veterinarian for a small town in rural Iowa. He embodied the values that I see as important in a veterinarian: compassion, knowledge, a strong work ethic, practicality, honesty, and fairness. Values which I strive to emulate in my practice of veterinary medicine every day.

 

I grew up in Rochester, Minnesota and spent most of my childhood there. There isn’t a part of my memory where animals were not a part of it. I grew up with dogs as a part of our family and was always befriending the barn cats on my grandparents’ farm. Over the years I had guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, frogs, many fish, and a snail (god bless my poor mother). Like every young girl (at some point in their childhood) I wanted to be a veterinarian when I grew up. The difference between most young girls and me is that dream never went away.

I spent much of my free time in veterinary clinics before and during high school. I moved to Wisconsin to begin my undergraduate studies in Bacteriology and Genetics at UW-Madison, and went on to earn my degree in veterinary medicine from the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine.

 

My interest in integrative medicine began during veterinary school. In addition to my required studies, I attended the Chi Institute during my third year of veterinary school and became a certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. During my fourth year of veterinary school I become certified in Animal Chiropractic by Options For Animals College of Animal Chiropractic and by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association. I also have a special interest in whole food and species appropriate nutrition, and could talk for days about all of the things that good food can do for the body. I'm currently working towards my Canine Rehabilitation Therapist Certification (CCRT) through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute.

I have had the privilege of having an incredible mentor, Dr. Barbara Royal, who continues to teach me the value of integrative veterinary care; incorporating western, eastern and complementary modalities to create the most individualized, effective, and comprehensive wellness plan for every animal.  

 

I opened Integrative Veterinary Service in November of 2015, and have happily settled here in the Milwaukee area with my husband, Drew, and our furry family. We have a 6 year old Vizsla named Gunner (my big baby), and the most snuggly (and naughty) 2 year old Vizsla, Indie. We also have two cats, a spunky 4 year old named Lark and our sweet Wren with her insatiable hunger and crooked feline tail.

I feel so fortunate to be a veterinarian—there is so much joy and honor being in a profession where the focus is on the welfare of the animals that have no voice! Yet, what I love even more, is what the alternative/ holistic modalities can offer to that welfare! Instead of having to focus on treating illness, I am able focus on the goal of optimal health and happiness. I am frequently awed and amazed by the dramatic response that we get from our patients.  And I have infinitely more options to reach success, by being able to offer: nutritional counseling, acupuncture, spinal manipulation, herbal therapy, laser therapy and exercise and rehabilitation principles. I find great joy in being able to educate my clients on these options, and allow my patients to achieve optimal health!

 

How I got here: I, like many people, have wanted to be a veterinarian since I was a kid…yet, by the time I was in college, the thought of four additional years of school and the added debt was too overwhelming. 

I graduated from the UW with a B.S. in both Zoology and Conservation Biology and a Certificate in Environmental Studies. I spent 5 years working in prairie and wetland restoration, but eventually realized that while it was very rewarding, I did not have passion for it.

 

So, I went back to Veterinary School and graduated from the UW-School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Within a couple years of practicing at a traditional small animal practice, I was feeling like “there must be more!” So, I began my undoubtedly life long journey into certification in holistic modalities, including veterinary acupuncture and spinal manipulation, canine rehabilitation therapy, Chinese herbal therapy and TCM food therapy (pending certification).

 

I have practiced in the Milwaukee area since I graduated and recently moved out into the country to be closer to Madison and my family with my husband, Jeff, Grace (my German Shorthair Pointer) and our cat, Jerold. When I'm not working, I enjoy giving presentations on pet wellness issues (nutrition, vaccines and titers, holistic alternatives, injury prevention, etc.) – please let me know if you would like for me to come talk to your interest group!  Aside from work, I most enjoy time outdoors with my husband and Grace! We love to camp, hike, kayak, paddleboard, and snowshoe. When forced indoors, I enjoy metal working, knitting, and pilates and doga!

It is my great privilege to join the Integrative Veterinary Service Team in spring of 2017!  

My undergraduate study was at UW Oshkosh where I enjoyed competing in college gymnastics while earning a BS in Biology. In 2010, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. During that time, I obtained valuable skills working in the critical care unit of the school. My work involved a lot of nursing care for patients and I saw how much a loving hand could heal faster!

I have considered myself a protector of the human-animal bond since I was young. It is my belief that healing strongly involves our "intention," in addition to our medicines. I have a love for learning from others and looking at situations from a different prospective.  

My interest in integrative medicine flourished when I started with my own physical and spiritual health. During vet school, I was part of the Christian Veterinary Mission Fellowship (CVMF) and traveled to Ecuador to help the indigenous communities take better care of their live stock and thus their own families. When my husband and I started our own family, we had the help and education of a Madison midwife, who quickly showed us the power of client education/involvement in one's own health. It was then I decided I wanted to share this energy with my clients and patients. In addition to therapeutic laser, food therapy, nutraceuticals, and geriatric/end-of-life counseling, I obtained my certification in TCVM and Acupuncture from the Chi Institute in 2016. My next goal is to become an essential oil advocate and become certified in veterinary spinal manipulation. During free moments, we enjoy many outdoor activities and snuggling our newborn baby boy, Vale, as well as the rest of the crazy humans (Hubby Todd, eldest boy, Harper (7), and spirited girl, Yahna (5)! The sultan of our home is our "nothing-less-than-purrfect" tabby cat, Prince Leo. He allows for us to remain in his home as long as he can participate in yoga, meditation, pillowtop sleeping, sharing your water glass, and baby swing time!
