Shauna Cantwell, DVM

Hello, I’m Dr. Shauna Cantwell

Welcome to my new home on the web. Your horses and your pets are more than just animals. Whether they are part of the family or competitive athletes, they are always treasured. When they are in need of well-being, or care for illness or injury, you want a thorough and knowledgeable approach from someone who can offer more than the basics and thinks outside the conventional box. My mission is to create a new and better medicine through comprehensive care, research and education.

I have been a practicing veterinarian since 1989 in Canada, and broad experience has brought me to this point in my career. I started out as an equine/mixed animal practitioner, specifically based on my extensive equine competitive background. I then spent a number of years in small animal general and emergency medicine (all the while continuing to ride and show). My interest in detail and physiology brought me to specialize in Anesthesiology in 1998, with board-certification and a Masters degree concentrating on respiratory physiology. This phase of my development created a strong focus in education, respiratory and neurophysiology, and pain management. For more information, see my “about” page.

  • While the Vet needed to practice controls to protect the health of their staff and the health of the clients, they were considerate and caring toward the animal owner and the pet. The Vet Shauna Cantwell explained her findings, and recommendations for future care. Excellent experience.

  • Dr. Cantwell and her staff are awesome. They are kind and make sure to keep you updated on your furry friend. She treated my 18 year old who had a traumatic injury. Within several visits she was no longer in pain.
