Extended Bio

Dr. Patty grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota where her love for animals was kindled. She attended the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine where she spent many hours in the neonatal Intensive Care Unit. After becoming a Veterinarian, Dr. Patty’s passionate interest in integrative health care choices for her animal patients lead her to further her education. She has completed extensive training in Animal Chiropractic at Options for Animals College of Animal Chiropractic and in Veterinary Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr. Shen Xie at the Chi Institute. Dr. Patty has practiced in northeast Wisconsin since 2001 where she focuses on a holistic approach to practice; integrating traditional care with chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, behavior, hoof care and dentistry. This assures quality healthcare for your horses while offering maximum choices in treatment. Additionally, Dr. Patty has been certified in Animal Chiropractic by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association and presently shares her skills and teaches at Options for Animals. In her ‘spare time’, Patty enjoys studying equine behavior and natural horsemanship with her companion ‘Sasquatch.’ She loves spending time with her family and solving crossword puzzles with help from her three fantastic dogs.

Dr. Patty Glover is a licensed veterinarian from the Green Bay area of Northeast Wisconsin. Dr. Glover has lived in many areas of the country but primarily grew up in the Black Hills of SD and the Silicon Valley of CA. In her ‘spare time’, Dr. Glover enjoys studying equine behavior and natural horsemanship with her companion Sasquatch, she and Sasquatch regularly travel to horsemanship clinics across the Midwest. She has enjoyed introducing all of her dogs to obedience and agility.

Dr. Glover attended South Dakota State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science in 1996. In 2000, she graduated from the University of Minnesota, School of Veterinary Medicine. During her tenure at the U of M, Dr. Glover spent many hours in the neonatal intensive care unit and was fortunate to have specialized equine specific ophthalmology, radiology and ultrasound experiences with regional experts. She also enjoyed studying South American Camelids (llamas and alpacas primarily) both in MN and the Willamette Valley of Oregon.

After graduating from vet school, Dr. Glover joined Bay Meadow Equine, a busy equine ambulatory practice in Northeast WI. She remained an associate there until she became a co-owner in 2004. She had a passionate interest in integrative health care choices for her animal patients which lead her to further her education. Striving to treat the “whole” patient, she sought education in nutrition, behavior, podiatry and dentistry. It was a natural progression from there to pursue animal chiropractic education. Upon graduating from the Options for Animals, College of Animal Chiropractic, she became certified by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association in 2004. Since that time, she has continued to work on the advanced certification they offer. In 2007, she completed the Veterinary Acupuncture courses at the Chi Institute in Reddick, FL.

Dr. Glover became an Instructor at the Options for Animals, College of Animal Chiropractic, in 2005. She maintained her fast paced practice and began to see a shift from all traditional medicine cases to more and more complimentary therapy cases. Dr. Glover sold her practice to a full service equine referral hospital in 2008. She now works as one of five doctors at that hospital, Great Lakes Equine Wellness Center.

Today Dr. Glover enjoys seeing approximately 75% Animal Chiropractic and Acupuncture cases. While she only performs Traditional Veterinary Medicine on horses, her complimentary therapy patients now include a number of dogs, cats and dairy cows. She regularly lectures to a wide variety of groups including the Midwest Horse Fair, FVTC Equine Management Courses, Riding Clubs and 4H Groups on all aspects of equine health care and management, as well as animal chiropractic and acupuncture. She also regularly contributes to local horse publications, such as the WI Horsemen’s News.
