Kari De Leeuw DVM, VSMT, CVA

We are very excited to have Dr. De Leeuw on the Horse Tip Daily Show with us.  Dr. De Leeuw is a Veterinarian with a twist.  She is owner of Equine Holistic, a practice in California, and specializes and is well known for her chiropractic and acupuncture work.


Originally from San Diego, Kari De Leeuw spent nearly every day of her childhood on a horse. She rode at Del Mar Showpark and competed hunters and jumpers. She graduated with honors from Cornell University and went on to get her Veterinary degree at UC Davis. She did a post-graduate internship at Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital in the Seattle, Washington area in 2002, where she focused on equine emergency medicine.

After completing her internship, Dr. De Leeuw remained at Pilchuck to further focus on equine sports medicine while continuing to see emergency cases. She completed her chiropractic training from the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Wisconsin and her acupuncture certification from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. She has worked closely with Dr. Michael Salewski and continues to study Traditional Chinese Medicine with the Chi Institute.

In her spare time, she can be found exercising herself, her horse Jordan, or her Border Collie, Clover.
