trs2Tracy Sudlow- Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist
Dr. Tracy Sudlow graduated with honors from Purdue University  with a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 2001.  She worked in a mixed animal practice for 9 years in north central Indiana, where she obtained a variety of medical and surgical experiences and small business management.  In 2010, she decided to pursue a practice of her own, and purchased what is now Country Side Veterinary Clinic.  With a thriving small animal practice, and seeing the need to help homeless animals in her community, she cofounded, and is currently president, of Paws ‘N’ Claws.  PNC is a non-profit animal shelter that serves Fountain County and parts of Warren County since 2011.  Along with CSVC, PNC helps heal and rehome the abandoned animal population in the surrounding counties.  Together, they take in these animals, spay/neuter, vaccinate, microchip, and rehome them into their forever homes.  Since 2012, Dr. Sudlow has also developed an interest in alternative therapies of medicine for animals, and began practicing Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.  Acupuncture is her main area of interest and she has since become a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, the only veterinarian in northwest central Indiana  to earn certification.  Her plans are to pursue this interest further, especially after seeing the amazing results in helping pets and their owners overcome chronic medical conditions not being controlled by traditional western medicine.  Quality of life issues, pain control, and strengthening the human-animal bond are her passions in veterinary medicine. Dr. Sudlow also serves on the Warren/Fountain County Board of Health and currently volunteers as the cat superintendent for Warren County 4-H.
Dr. Sudlow lives in rural Warren County on her small farm with her two children, Reagan and Ava.  Both of her children have inherited her love for animals and the outdoors!  They have 4 dogs, 2 cats, a rabbit, and many fish.  They are currently cultivating a large area of pasture at their home into a grassland with Indiana native grasses and wildflowers.  This will provide many species  of song birds, wild turkeys, birds of prey, deer, and many other animals habitat in which to thrive.  Preserving native plants and protecting wildlife is another interest she and her entire family enjoy.
