Sara E. Wick BSc. MSc. DVM

Dr. Wick was born and raised in small town Ontario. She attended the University of Guelph where she completed a Bachelors and then a Master’s degree in Zoology. After completing her Master’s degree, she jumped right into a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC). Following completion of her veterinary degree, Dr. Wick stayed at the OVC for a rotating internship in emergency medicine, internal medicine and surgery to further advance her knowledge in these areas. She then moved out west to Calgary to follow one of her passions and work in a 24-hour emergency practice for the following 6 years. Dr. Wick then made the move to general practice for two years in the Calgary area before deciding to open her own practice in her home community of Mahogany. Dr. Wick is very excited to bring her love of animals and knowledge to the community’s pet owners.

Kristin South

A graduate of the University of Calgary with a combined BA/BSc, Kristin has been working in customer service and management since 2001.  In 2009, she joined the veterinary community in an customer service role for a busy 24 hour emergency and referral practice in Calgary, and over that time has worked in a variety of managerial positions: allowing her to learn the ins and outs of the veterinary field, as well as develop an extensive network of veterinary contacts across North America.  A consistent comment that is made of her is that she constantly goes over and above to make sure that clients and patients are treated with the utmost care and compassion, whether the family friend is coming in for a nail trim, a spay, or for something unexpected.  She is a full time “mom” to three rescue cats named Crush, Loki, and Stetson, as well as one Labrador cross named Rogue.  Starting in June 2017, Kristin is looking forward to bringing her commitment, passion, and love of animals to families even more directly as she begins work with the Mahogany Veterinary Clinic.
