Megan M. Kelley, DVM, CVA (IVAS), CVSMT, FCoAC
Dr. Megan Kelley was raised in Cashmere, where she learned to swim in the Cashmere pool and went to Vale Elementary. Growing up in Cashmere and the surrounding areas instilled in Megan an appreciation and respect for the outdoors, a passion for the arts, and a deep love for animals that evolved into a career in veterinary medicine.
Dr. Kelley knew she wanted to be a veterinarian at a young age, which fueled her desire to excel and persevere. As one of the first Running Start students in the Wenatchee Valley, she graduated with her Associates of Science from Wenatchee Valley College at the time of her high school graduation. Megan went on to graduate from Washington State University in 2001, majoring in Zoology with an emphasis in Veterinary Medicine, was the youngest college graduate to start the Veterinary Medicine Program at WSU in 2001, and graduated from WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005.
Dr. Kelley has enjoyed a varied and distinguished professional career. She has worked in Wenatchee, both at Countryside Small Animal Veterinary Clinic and at the Animal Hospital of Wenatchee, and has also worked in specialty veterinary clinics in both Florida and Washington State as an emergency clinician for over 10 years. During her time in general practice, Dr. Kelley has learned to successfully integrate the use of both Holistic Medical Treatments (such as acupuncture and herbal therapy) with Conventional Medicine, in order to provide the highest level of care to her patients. Throughout her extensive career, Dr. Kelley has found the use of integrative medicine to be the most natural and effective way to care for animals in both theory and practice.
Dr. Kelley was certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2011 through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS), and in 2017, she became certified in veterinary spinal manipulation therapy (CVSMT), also known as veterinary chiropractics.
An involved community member, Dr. Kelley is a part of the cello section in the Wenatchee Valley Symphony, writes a monthly column for the Wenatchee World, and is a proud member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA), the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS), the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture (AAVA), is a Fellow of the College of Animal Chiropractors, and Wenatchee Valley Humane Society’s 2019 Humanitarian of the Year.
