MISSY JORDAN, DVM
Jeanne Klafin, DVM, CVA
Originally from New York, Dr. Klafin has been serving the cats and dogs of the Boulder and New York City communities for over 10 years. She received her undergraduate degree in Communications from New York University in 1998, and spent 10 years working in the music industry at a boutique record label before pursuing her veterinary career. Dr. Klafin then went on to complete a post-baccalaureate premedical program at Columbia University in 2005, and pursued her doctor of veterinary medicine degree at St. George’s University. Dr. Klafin spent a year in Philadelphia, finishing her veterinary training at the University of Pennsylvania. After school, she completed a rigorous internship at Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists in New York, where she developed an interest in all aspects of Internal Medicine. Since finishing her internship, she has worked in general practice in Boulder, Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Dr. Klafin has always been interested in the health benefits of eastern medicine. In 2019, she began her traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM) studies at the world-renowned Chi Institute in Florida, focusing on the practice of acupuncture, and she received her certified veterinary acupuncture degree in 2020.
Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own immune system through placement of specialized needles at critical points on the body. The benefits of acupuncture have been extensively studied under both eastern and western medical standards. Thousands of peer-reviewed studies show its benefits for a variety of conditions, including arthritis/orthopedic pain, neurologic abnormalities, gastrointestinal diseases, kidney and liver disorders, cancer, as well as heart and lung conditions.
Dr. Klafin incorporates an integrative approach to practicing veterinary medicine, using acupuncture and other TCVM modalities to complement western diagnoses and therapies. The addition of acupuncture for treatment of any veterinary disease offers a more holistic approach to treatment, incorporating the well-being of the whole body in a non-invasive way, with little to no side-effects.
Dr. Klafin is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture, and is a USDA-accredited veterinarian. She lives in North Boulder with her rescue cats, Z and Gigi, and her rescue Chihuahua mix, Chilaquiles. When not practicing veterinary medicine, she takes advantage of all that Colorado has to offer. She enjoys music, film, reading, traveling, vegan cooking, boxing, hiking, cycling and rock/mountain climbing.
