Guest Speaker: Teleah Grand, DVM
Dr. Grand graduated from LSU in 1986 with a B.S. in Electrical
Engineering. After working in the defense industry for 5 years, Dr. Grand quit her job as an
engineer to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian.
Dr. Grand graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine with her D.V.M. in 1996. She
worked in Kentucky and Florida, before moving back to Texas to build her own practice in McKinney.
Dr. Grand opened the doors of Animal Care Center at Stonebridge Ranch in 2002.
In 2015 Dr. Grand became frustrated with the limitations of Western medicine when it came to
debilitating and chronic diseases and sought to learn a more natural, non invasive way of helping
her patients. She decided to become a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist (CVA) and attended
classes at the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida. There she discovered
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and it opened an entirely new, natural and effective way
of practicing veterinary medicine. She has since earned her Certification in Food Therapy, and
is pursuing her Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. The first ever
master's degree in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine offered in the United States.
