Hi, I am Dr. Roxane Neufeld. I grew up in Steinbach, Manitoba and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in 1998. I first started working at a mixed animal practice in Stonewall, Manitoba for 5 months, then at a mixed animal practice in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan for 3 years. In September, 2001, my husband and I moved to Dauphin, Manitoba and I started working at the Dauphin Veterinary Clinic. A big reason for moving to this area was for the parks, and camping and fishing opportunities.
In September 2002, I bought in to the practice together with my business partner Dr. Kevin Steinbachs. In 2009, we took over the Ste. Rose Veterinary Clinic as well.
Areas of practice that I enjoy include pet dentistry and surgery. I love going to conferences and learning. We strive to stay current with technology and have really enjoyed incorporating Therapy Laser for our patients to help with pain control.
My two daughters and I have been involved with the Parkland Paddling Club in Dauphin for about 6 years, and I am in my third year teaching Intro to Kayaking. I have also really enjoyed getting involved in local ventures such as Manitoba MudRun, Adventure racing, and our local church where I led the Women’s Ministry for 9 years.
I love the opportunity to teach and so I have started this blog hopefully as a way to provide learning opportunities for you, for pet owners and livestock owners. I welcome questions and suggestions of topics you would like to see discussed.
So, this is a little bit about me and my launch into the world of blogging!
