Geraldine Diethelm, Dr. Med. Vet., Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist

Owner, Marathon Veterinary Hospital in the Florida Keys

Dr. Diethelm grew up in Hong Kong when it was still a British Colony and attended veterinary school at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Diethelm completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at the Washington State University, Pullman before moving to Los Angeles, California and from there, to the Florida Keys. For over 20 years, she has owned and built up the Marathon Veterinary Hospital, the local general, referral and emergency hospital in the Keys. She is certified in veterinary acupuncture and homeopathic medicine and practices herbal medicine, Tui Na (chinese massage), food therapy and veterinary medical manipulation. Today, Dr. Diethelm is still rebuilding the Marathon Veterinary Hospital after Hurricane Irma and looks forward to finally enjoying her home and the garden after this recovery process. Most importantly, Dr. Diethelm has loved being part of the NAVC family for the last 20 years… and counting!
