Raised in Colorado, Dr. Marie Bartling lives to enjoy the natural beauty of our state. Growing up with horses, dogs, cats, birds, lizards, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and fish (probably left out a few) Marie combined her passion for animals with her work when she graduated from CSU with her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2005. Dr. Bartling has practiced both small animal and equine medicine and has developed skills in general medicine, diagnostic ultrasound, animal chiropractic, nutrition, pain management, rehabilitation, dentistry, soft tissue surgery and regenerative medicine. She has traveled far and wide practicing veterinary medicine from rural Alaska to urban Mexico.
She continues her lifelong pursuit of learning through teaching and instruction as Marie has a habit of spending all her hard earned money on continuing education. At least she gets paid for teaching! She is a clinical instructor for the Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic as well as the Medical Acupuncture course for veterinarians at Colorado State University. She loves to teach and considers her life purpose to be a student, a teacher and healer. She was certified in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture in 2007 and chiropractic care in 2012. She has used her physical care skills for horses and dogs in competitive sports, injuries and for orthopedic and neurological diseases.
Her energy comes from time with her blue heeler, Bella, and her friends and family. She has passion for painting, photography, dancing, and hiking. She speaks Spanish and hopes to become fluent in Spanish and Italian through dance and culinary arts travel exploration, and that her travels and photography will one day fill her house with fantastic photographs and stories. She loves life, the outdoors and her clients and patients.
