He works mostly with small animals including all manner of exotic species such as snakes, lizards, and birds. Occasionally he does equine and large animal work.

Dr. Stephen lives near Birds Hill Park with his wife, two daughters, two dogs, a cat, and a pig.

Dr. Madeline Baron2021-07-14T20:57:34+00:00

I was raised on a commercial cow-calf ranch in southern Alberta where I developed a profound love and respect for animals. I always imagined I would continue ranching, but was inspired by a few veterinarians to pursue this awesome career. I graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science and completed my DVM at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2021.

During Veterinary college, I stumbled upon the love of my life and the decision was made to move to Beausejour to start my career. My husband and I have a beautiful acreage that is currently home to six cats and one dog, however there are sure to be several additions in the future.

Dr. Brittney Derksen2017-04-27T15:31:56+00:00

rbrittneyI was born and raised in Winnipeg and spent many summers at our cottage in Lac du Bonnet.

I have always had a great love for animals and knew from the age of six that I wanted to be a veterinarian.

After completing my Bachelor of Science degree at University of Winnipeg I went on to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2013.

I joined Beausejour Animal Hospital in the spring of 2015. Along with my enjoyment of all aspects of companion animal medicine I have a passion for equine care as well. I hope to meet more as time goes by.

At home, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and family, walking my dog Maully and competing with my horse Dollar.

Dr. Claus Leppelmann2018-07-30T21:22:37+00:00

I grew up on a farm near Steinbach Manitoba and always enjoyed when the vet came to the farm – I became interested in veterinary medicine because of those visits. I received my DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. It is an extremely exciting and challenging career; it’s never the same day twice. Our family has a small herd of Dexter cattle, several guinea pigs, 2 rabbits, 1 donkey, 2 dogs, 1 cat, several hermit crabs and various fish.

Our family moved to Beausejour in 2001.  While I enjoy all aspects of mixed animal practice, my area of interest is dairy production and medicine.

 

 

Dr. Karen Leppelmann2018-07-30T21:22:57+00:00

My interest in veterinary medicine began when I was eight years old and my dairy 4H leader told me I should consider being a veterinarian.  Growing up on a small farm in Salmon Arm B.C. gave me a chance to become familiar with a wide variety of livestock – we raised cattle, chickens, turkeys, horses, rabbits and pigs, and we always had a yard full of cats, dogs, and other creatures! As I progressed through school, I realized that my love for working with animals blended perfectly with my interest in medicine. In 1997, I  graduated from Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. My career began out in Alberta, first in Barrhead, then in Leduc after marrying my vet school classmate, Claus. We moved to Beausejour in 2001.

The years have flown by, and we now have three boys, all of whom enjoy the adventures created by a life centred around veterinary practice!

Dr. Carolyn Maguet2018-07-30T21:23:28+00:00

Currently on maternity leave.

I was raised on a mixed farm (beef cattle and grain) in the prairie grain belt near Eston, Saskatchewan. My grandparents lived in the same yard and helped raise my sisters and me. My grandfather made sure we always had plenty of western pleasure horses to ride and took us to horse shows and trail rides when I was young. Of course, there were always plenty of barn cats, and through the year, a wide assortment of dogs on the farm as well! I think my love of animals was fostered from a very young age and probably heavily influenced by my Grandpa Cal.

 

I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon in 2005 and have been working steady ever since. I started out at a busy mixed practice in Sundre, Alberta for my first 2 years. I enjoyed being in “cattle country” with a view of the Rockies. However, a certain guy in my life eventually drew me towards Manitoba. Eric and I both started working in Beausejour, MB in the spring of 2007 and are happy to call it “home” now. We got married here in 2009 and have definitely put down some roots!

Dr. Eric Maguet2018-07-30T21:23:10+00:00

I was born in Ste Rose du Lac and grew up on a mixed farm.

Dr. Chantalle Penner2019-09-09T19:06:30+00:00

“Dr. Chantalle grew up on a cow-calf farm in Elma, MB and she spent her summers growing up working with the cows and working the fields. On the farm there was never a shortage of livestock or pets, albeit cows, horses, pigs, dogs, cats, or rabbits. This is where her life-long passion for livestock, and companion animals developed.

Dr. Chantalle graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Science from the University of Winnipeg in 2015 and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine with a DVM in the spring of 2019. She was lucky enough to attend the Cornell Summer Dairy Institute, an advanced training program for prospective dairy veterinarians in the summer 2019. She spent an intensive 6-weeks there learning from experts in dairy production medicine from all over the world.

Although, Dr. Chantalle enjoys working with animals both large and small, her favorite part of veterinary medicine is dairy calf health, and transition cow management. Dr. Chantalle had been a student with us at BAH for 3 summers throughout her journey of veterinary college, and started with the clinic as a veterinarian in May 2019.

Outside of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Chantalle enjoys swimming, fishing, archery, camping, and horseback riding.”

I grew up on a mixed farm near Winnipeg Beach and I am still involved with this farm today. I took my pre-veterinary courses at the University of Manitoba and graduated in 2010 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

I have always enjoyed being outdoors and around animals. As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be in the agriculture profession. I decided to become a mixed animal Veterinarian in my first year of University.

I enjoy spending time with my wife Amanda, training my dog Scout, curling in the winter and helping family on the farm.
