  • Cassy Charette, R.A.H.T.

    I’m a Registered Veterinary Technologist that graduated from Red River Collage in 2008. I began working casually at Arrowwood Animal Hospital in August of 2014 while also working at the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital afterhours clinic. Being on emergency has allowed me to build and strengthen my skills as a technologist throughout the 10 years I was with them. July of 2019 I became a full time employee at Arrowwood Animal Hospital while I continue to work Emergency casually.

    My favorite part of being a RVT other than meeting all of the amazing pets and owners that come through our doors would have to be venipunctures! Placing intravenous catheters is one of my strengths as well as collecting your pet’s blood samples for diagnostic procedures.

  • Kristina Payne
    Veterinary Assistant

    Hello my name is Kristina and I began working at Arrowwood animal hospital last year in September. I have two dogs who I hold very close to my heart. I am also currently working towards becoming an Animal Health Technologist which will take place at Red River college. When I was a little girl I always shared a special connection towards animals, and that’s when I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. 

    I am looking forward to the exciting journey ahead and I am thankful of having the opportunity to be working at Arrowwood animal hospital. Working at this clinic has been one of the best parts of my journey. I am excited to soon further my passion of caring for animals! Animals have already been one of the biggest parts of my life. I am happy to be given so many opportunities to help me with my career of becoming a RVT.

  • Suzette

    Hi there! I'm Suzette. I've recently joined Arrowwood Animal Hospital as a veterinary assistant. 

    My passion for animals runs deep with seven tortoises and a lizard as my sidekick. I enjoy watching them eat and go about their busy days running around at 0.5 kph. 

    As I prepare to embark on my journey into the veterinary technology program at Red River College, I am very excited to learn and make a positive impact with Arrowwood Animal Hospital in providing top-notch care to advocate for the wellbeing of our precious companion animals.
