Meet Dr. Wolfrum
Dr. Ann-Marie Wolfrum DVM CVA established Del Dios Veterinary Acupuncture to focus on healing patients through Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) by providing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to equine and canine patients.
Dr. Wolfrum grew up in Massachusetts riding and competing show hunters. During her undergraduate education in Michigan (BA in Economics), she started the Calvin College Equestrian Team that still competes in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) to this day. She obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine here in sunny Southern California. During veterinary school, she attended the Chi Institute near Ocala, Florida where she studied Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA).
Upon graduation from Western University of the Health Sciences, Dr. Wolfrum furthered her clinical skills by completing a rigorous one year equine internship at Pacific Crest Equine, a referral hospital in Exeter, CA. At Pacific Crest Equine, she was responsible for ICU cases, emergency cases, and general practice that included a variety of horses ranging from working cowhorses to Olympic eventing horses.
After her internship, she worked as an associate veterinarian at San Dieguito Equine Group, an ambulatory equine practice focused on sport and racing horses in Southern California. With access to boarded specialists, advanced imaging, and a team of talented equine sports medicine veterinarians and technicians, she honed her skills in orthopedics while providing elite care to race and sport horses in San Diego and Orange Counties.
Dr. Wolfrum continues to pursue excellence in acupuncture and TCVM by attending advanced acupuncture courses and extensive continuing education through the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (AAVA), American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA), the Chi Institute and other organizations. She is currently focused on becoming a Certified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist (CVCH).
When she is not attending to her patients, Dr. Wolfrum enjoys hiking with her husband, Jerad, and spending time with their pets in beautiful Del Dios.Me
