Dr. Carol Ross
Carol was raised on a farm near the small town of Arrowwood, AB. Growing up she loved to help with all aspects of the farm from chasing cows to fixing the combine. She was active in 4-H Beef, softball, basketball and dance.
Carol is passionate and skilled in helping to restore her patient’s mobility through surgery; whether a fracture repair or stifle surgery she wants her patients to enjoy being active as much as she does. She also enjoys veterinary dentistry and giving pet’s a pain free mouth. She is our designated clinic dentist and travels between or Estevan and Weyburn locations performing dental surgery three days a week.
Always found nearby is her sidekick “Marley”, an energetic and somewhat naughty Corgi/ Heeler. When not at the clinic she can be found cheering on her kids Jaycee, Hugh and Sydney at the pool, rink or dance studio. When summer is in full bloom you will find Carol with her paddle board strapped to her car roof. Perfectly calm water calls to her and she is never too busy to enjoy a tour on the lake from her board.
Carol can be found leaving notes of encouragement for her team and has true admiration for them and their superhuman abilities to care for her patients like Wayne Gretzky handles a puck.
Dr. Jeremy Ross
Jeremy knew he wanted to be a veterinarian since he was a child. Growing up on a ranch near Estevan he was interested in science and biology. He loved medicine and animals but couldn’t stand the thought of being a human doctor.
Jeremy keeps three goals in mind when helping every patient; to understand the client’s needs, to do his best for the animal’s sake and to keep him and his team safe.
He shares his love of life with his three kids Jaycee, Sydney and Hugh. Brightening his days are his pets Jewel, a cowboy corgi, his cat JJ and his six horses that he spends more time with than any human in his life.
Dr. Karly Lanz
Growing up on an acreage by Qu’Appelle, SK, Karly has rode horses from the young age of three, and enjoyed the cats, dogs, and roping cattle that she had the opportunity to grow up with. Her childhood consisted of lots of riding horses and rodeo – barrel racing and team roping – playing ice hockey and ringette competitively, and hunting and fishing. Pursuing her life-long passion of wanting to become an ‘animal doctor’, she did three years of a 4-year Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Regina, before getting accepted into the veterinarian program at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon.
Since graduating vet school in May 2009, Karly has been in mixed private practice and proudly joined us as an associate veterinarian at Prairie Animal Health Centre in Estevan in December 2013. She enjoys the variety of small animal, equine and bovine medicine that mixed practice offers. Karly is also a certified veterinary acupuncturist and is certified in veterinary herbal medicine. She is continuously practicing integrative veterinary medicine, where she offers western and alternative options for her patients. Karly approaches each case individually – every patient has their own unique way of showing clinical signs, their own willingness to allow her to work with them, and their own response to treatments. She tries to be as in-tune with each patient as she can and address their needs case by case, day by day. It is a priority for Dr. Lanz to provide confident, compassionate care to her patients and clients.
When not at work, Karly and her fiancé live on a farm outside of Carnduff, SK, where they both enjoy their two dogs, numerous horses, playing hockey, hunting, and actively competing in rodeos all over SK, MB, and AB.
