One of our two Winnipeg veterinarians and a truly dedicated professional, Dr. Mander has been providing veterinary services since 1996 and treats both large and small animals. Already holding a Masters in surgery, Dr. Mander is taking additional courses in orthopedic surgery. As a result of his continued study, our animal hospital now performs surgery for cruciate ligament ruptures, bone plating, and repair of long bone fractures. He is also an expert in performing endoscopic procedures on small animals.
Dr. Weebadda completed her DVM in 1991 in Sri Lanka, followed by a Ph.D. in Pathobiology with a focus on respiratory disease. She spent time working at the Rosser Park Cancer Research Institute in Buffalo, NY and before joining our practice, took a refresher in small animal medicine. She brings a broad background and array of pet care knowledge to the practice.
