Mitsie Vargas


Dr. Mitsie Vargas received her DVM from Tuskegee University in 1994. In 1996 she established her AAHA accredited Orchid Springs Animal Hospital in Winter Haven, FL. In 2009 she started her studies at Chi Institute, eventually garnering certifications in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Food therapy and Tui Na. She is an assistant teacher at Chi Institute and has worked as a consultant for Disney Animal Kingdom.



Dr. Vargas is also a sought out speaker, a certified veterinary journalist and has published hundreds of articles including her Monthly Lakeland Ledger newspaper pet care column. Dr. Vargas is a prolific author of both scientific and motivational articles. She is a guest blogger for BHG and a writer for Woman to Woman Magazine. She also wrote a chapter on Jack Canfield’s Amazon Best seller book The Soul of Success. She served as an AVMA Spokesperson for Hispanic market and has recorded many PSA’s and radio interviews promoting responsible pet ownership. Her love for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine manifested in her book Alt-Vet: The Revolutionary Pet Care and Longevity Solution.



Alt-Vet: The Revolutionary Pet Care and Longevity Solution explores the alternative therapies that are available to your pet through a network of alternative veterinary medicine practitioners throughout the country, but offers some simple and safe therapies you can do at home with your pet that will them maintain a high level of health and happiness. TCVM is not some new concept- it has been practiced for thousands of years, yet surprisingly, many Americans have not heard of it or tried it with their pet.



Alt-Vet contains real life stories of animals that have been brought to my clinic by pet owners that were looking for some hope of saving their animal, reducing their pain, and increasing their quality of life.
