Madeleine Hoog-Crellin, DVM, Staff Veterinarian
Dr. Madeleine Hoog-Crellin graduated from the University of Vermont with a BS in Animal Science. She then attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Her original direction was large animal surgery, but she quickly fell in love with the variety of general practice. She worked at All Caring Animal Hospital during summers and school breaks through vet school. It was there that she was introduced to and became interested in alternative therapies like acupuncture, homeopathy and traditional Chinese medicine.
After finishing her conventional veterinary schooling, Dr. Mady completed the Healing Oasis Veterinary Spinal Manipulation course - a 226 hour post graduate certification course in manual animal chiropractic. Chiropractic adjustments for both her small and large patients have helped decrease pain and increase quality of life. Two years later, she completed an intense 130 hour course to become a certified animal acupuncturist through the world-renowned Chi Institute in Florida. She is currently studying how to treat disease with food and diet. These alternative therapies are an "extra tool in the toolbox" both as a complement to traditional treatments but also to treat diseases that are not responding to other therapies.
Her professional interests include alternative and holistic medicine, soft tissue surgery and animal behavior. After practicing in the Garden State and her home state of New York, she is happy to have moved back to her favorite animal hospital. She is excited to be back and share her love of the Berkshires with her husband, four cats, one dog, twelve chickens and four horses. In her spare time she likes to ride her horses, play volleyball and garden!
