Elbertse, Yolanda – Drs., DVM, CCRP, cVMA, diplomate IVAPM – the Netherlands
Yolanda got her veterinary degree at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands. She started working at the practice of an internal medicine specialist. After starting her own practice, specializing in internal medicine, she noticed that her clients needed a cheaper alternative for orthopedic problems. That’s when she enrolled in several surgical courses. She wasn’t satisfied with the fact that after surgery dogs had to rehabilitate on their own. In the Netherlands, especially neurological patients, are told to sit in a crate for several weeks. Therefor she widened her scoop onto the international world and got an degree in the rehabilitation of dogs and cats, pain medicine and last medical acupuncture for animals. Now she feels that she can offer the best care to her patients.
