Dr. Cara Warkentin, DVM

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.

Dr. Warkentin completed her certification in animal chiropractic (spinal manipulation) through Options for Animals in Spring 2018. This has been a great addition to treatments for both young and old patients.

In 2020 Dr. Warkentin completed the TCVM Palliative and End-of-Life Care course. This course has given her new insight into keeping our patients comfortable and happy, and will allow us to better help prepare our clients for their pet’s passing.

In her spare time Dr. Warkentin is kept busy with family life - riding horses and exploring the outdoors, with her two sons. Reading a book or practicing yoga are favourite down time activities.
