AnShen Holistic Veterinary Care, LLC was founded in 2005 by Dr. Jody Bearman with the mission to help animals heal or stay healthy through traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. An Eastern physical based on a thorough history of the animal leads to a Chinese diagnosis. All five of the five branches of traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine are used to treat their patients.
Dr. Andrea Lanphear graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS in Zoology in 1989. After graduation she returned to her hometown, Chicago, and worked in pharmaceutical sales. She moved back to Madison to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She joined the Country View Veterinary Service practice in Oregon, Wisconsin in 2004. She received her veterinary acupuncture certification from the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and has been studying under Dr. Jody Bearman ever since. She is also certified veterinary food therapist by the Chi Institute for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
