     Dr. Vanessa Carl obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with honours with distinction from the University of Victoria in 2003. She then graduated with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree with distinction from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon in 2007.

     Dr. Carl has been working as a small animal practitioner ever since and enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but especially dentistry, internal medicine and oncology. She also worked part time as an emergency veterinarian at Fish Creek 24 hr Pet Hospital since 2012. More recently, she has partnered with the owners of Fish Creek to open Little Creek Veterinary Clinic in December 2014 to accommodate some of the wellness and chronic care needs of their patients.

     While growing up in beautiful British Columbia, Dr. Carl spent much of her time with her horses. She now spends her time off practicing ashtanga yoga daily, boogie boarding in Hawaii, and doing home renovations.  Dr. Carl has a well-fed bratty cat named Tigger, who tells all her friends that his owner doesn’t feed him enough. She also has a border collie cross named Bernard, who keeps her on her toes with his “Marley and Me” type antics. Her latest adoption is a plump British short hair rescue named Garfield.

     Dr. Corinne Chapman is passionate about nutrition and focuses on a more holistic perspective in the hope that her patients can live their healthiest, most vibrant life. After graduating from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, Corinne moved to Calgary and spent the next 4 years practicing both emergency and general practice.  In 2001 she started her own housecall practice, RockyRidge VetCare Ltd, where she travelled all over Calgary for the next 10 years. During this time Corinne became certified in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

     Corinne’s family includes her husband and daughter, an intelligent and goofy Collie Shepherd cross named “Stella”, 2 orange tabby brothers “Stanley Tucci” and “Tyrone”, and the tiny but never timid kitty “Boo”. Her furry crew is constantly up to no good but keeps their human counterparts in stitches and snuggles.

      In 2015, Corinne joined Little Creek Vet Clinic and is so happy to be a part of such a wonderful team! She also works part time at the associated emergency clinic, Fish Creek Pet Hospital and continues to volunteer every year with the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force.
