Dr. Beth Barrett graduated in 1988 from the veterinary program at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Over the next 15 years she practiced on the racetrack in Winnipeg, owned a mixed practice in Claresholm, went back to teach at the vet school in Saskatoon, and worked doing locums in various clinics in Calgary. She developed a special interest in reproductive work and worked extensively for several years doing laparoscopic surgery on sheep, goats and deer in China, Mexico, Tobago and and the Bahamas.

For the past 10 years she has focused on Barrett Veterinary Practice, a (mostly) small animal and equine practice in Dalemead.

She has two sons, Jeffrey and Mark, who keep her busy running to and from basketball practice and games. When she is not busy with work or her boys, Dr Barrett loves to train dogs, and has competed in Obedience, Hunt tests, Agility and Scent Hurdling with her critters. She bred, owned and trained “Brio”, the first Golden Retriever in Canadian history to earn the Master Versatility Certificate (still one of only two dogs to achieve this title).
