Dr. Birgit Wunsch, DVM


Dr. Birgit Wunsch graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. She grew up in St. Albert and is happy to be part of the team at Animal Wellness Veterinary Clinic. She enjoys general medicine, routine soft tissue surgery and routine dentistry in cats and dogs. Her favorite thing about being a vet is the ability to help clients understand their pet's conditions and treatments so they may make informed decisions about the care of their furry family members.
Over the years she has shared her home with many animals including gerbils, guinea pigs, budgies, cockatiels, horses, dogs, cats and even two or three chinchillas. They have taught her so much about the diverse and wonderful traits that our companion animals have. Veterinary medicine has taught her to keep an open mind when looking at cases and to never stop learning. There are always new medications, new technologies and new referral specialists to help treat the diverse problems we see in veterinary medicine. She looks forward to continuing to help the clients of Animal Wellness Veterinary Clinic to meet the needs of their extra special pets.
Every day is a new adventure when you work with cats and dogs!
