'Summer was diagnosed with double hip dysplasia. With Western medicine, she was given two options: surgery for $16,000 or euthanasia... We transitioned Summer from taking high quantities of pain medication to just one pain medication at a reduced dosage… after just one visit!'
Dr. Cara Warkentin, DVM, CVA
Dr. Warkentin graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. She worked in a mixed
animal practice in Regina for 4 years before moving back to Manitoba and working for a small animal practice.
She completed her mixed animal veterinary acupuncture certification in 2014 from the Chi Institute and has
been integrating this treatment into her medicine ever since. Through the Chi Institute’s acupuncture program
Dr. Warkentin received training in herbal therapies and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
In her spare time Dr. Warkentin is kept busy with family life – riding horses and exploring the outdoors, often in search of ”dinosaurs” with her son. Reading a book or practicing yoga are favourite down time activities.
In January 2018 Dr. Warkentin assumed ownership of Natural Healing Veterinary Care, as our beloved Dr. Hamilton retired. Dr. Warkentin is thankful for Dr. Hamilton’s mentorship and friendship over the last several years and Natural Healing Veterinary Care wishes Dr. Hamilton the best as she enters this next chapter of life.
