Here at Barrett Veterinary Practice, a small practice just east of Calgary, you will find a passionate group of people, driven by their love of animals. We are here to provide a warm happy environment for your nervous new kitten or puppy's first vaccination, be the smiling face that your pet wakes up to after routine surgery, and be your shoulder to cry on during the hardest of times. We are here for you.
When you walk through the doors of Barrett Veterinary Practice, your local country vet with a twist, you'll be greeted by the friendly faces of Abby and Sam, who will help you into one of our two exam rooms. Once settled you'll meet Tina and Roxane our rockstar veterinary technicians and Dr. Barrett our practice owner with 31 years of experience who will assess your pet and have a chat about the goals of your 30-minute appointment, whether it be routine vaccinations, an emergency medical assessment, or a general health concern they'll discuss and formulate a treatment plan.
Does your pet need a toenail trim or do you have too many puppies to handle? Chances are that you'll also meet our technician assistants Ayla and Kayla who are here to help with your pets' needs!
