Brandi Suva, DVM
Dr. Brandi Suva (nee Petrukovich) completed a Bachelor of Science with a major in Animal Science from the University of Saskatchewan in 2009. In 2013 graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. This was followed by completing a Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Internship at the Veterinary Emergency Clinic and Referral Centre (VEC) in Toronto, Ontario in 2014.

I was born in southwestern Saskatchewan and lived there until I was nine, when my family moved to Youngstown, Alberta.
After high school I took a summer job with the Special Areas Parks Department, and then spent the next ten months as a stable hand at Coleman Farm near Sherwood Park. I attended New Brunswick Bible Institute for the 2018-19 school year, followed by another summer on the Parks Department.
I started as a general assistant at Vermilion Vet Clinic in October 2019. I'm enjoying the people I get to work with, as well as the wide variety of tasks.

I graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at Lakeland College in June of 2019. I then completed my practicum at West Wind Veterinary Hospital and was hired at Vermilion Veterinary Clinic shortly after.
I have always had a strong passion for animals and growing up around the animals on the family farm, I knew from a young age that I wanted to work in the veterinary industry. I am most passionate about working with dogs, cats and horses but I have been enjoying working with cattle and look forward to learning more as I grow in my career.
I currently have 2 fur babies one being my lovely horse Ginger and the other being my little dog TJ both of which I adore. I have already adopted a stray kitten from the clinic and with my plans to move out to a farm with my boyfriend Brayden, I’m sure there will be more to come!
I have been grooming dogs and cats at Wainwright Vet Services and Vermilion Vet Clinic since June 2009.
I provide full grooming services from hair cuts to bath and brush. I will even give your special kitty a creative hair cut upon request!

I graduated from Lakeland College the spring of 2018. I did my practicum at Viking Veterinary Clinic and was hired at Vermilion Veterinary Clinic right after.
Growing up on the farm I had the opportunity to work with all species of animals. My favourite part of the job is working with cattle, from processing calves to C-sections.
My husband and I were married August 2019 and live on an acreage north of Wainwright. We have 2 cats, an Aussie named Luna and more outdoor animals o come.
