Stephanie Coates

Stephanie graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. She worked in a mixed animal practice for 3 years specialising in equine services and food animal health until she left to direct a veterinary teaching program in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
In 2008 she opened her own practice and incorporated traditional and non-traditional medicine modalities.
Stephanie is IVCA certified in animal chiropractics and is a considered a Certified Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) Practitioner. She incorporates chiropractic, acupuncture, food therapy, herbal therapy, tui -na (Chinese massage and myofascial technique), and Pulse Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) into her treatment programs.
Besides her interest in non-traditional modalities, Stephanie has a particular interest in lameness diagnostics, optimising performance, and preventative health and wellness.
In her spare time Stephanie is keen on western riding, team roping and western speed events with her horse Jim-bob. There is no doubt you will meet her beloved dog “Elsie-Mae” who is always riding shot gun. Stephanie is excited to be joining the team at Hamilton Vets.
