A full service mixed animal practice

Tanglefoot Veterinary Services Ltd. is a full service mixed animal practice offering a full spectrum of preventative, surgical and medical care.

Owned and operated by Dr. Uli Helvoigt, Tanglefoot Veterinary Services has been offering care for our 4-legged friends in Cranbrook and surrounding area since 2009.  Our team has grown and changed so much since then.  Dr. Holly Munroe is one of our full time veterinarians who does amazing work in both small animals and large animal, she is also branching out to do more of our bovine work.  Dr. Joanna Kouwenberg is one of our part timers, and while she is great with the small animals her passion lays with our equine patients.  Dr. Jasmine Hardy is another one of the full time vets, she is amazing with our small animal patients but is also always willing to do some of the large animal work as well.  We share Dr. Meryam Shillingford with Fernie TVS, and while she does mostly small animal work, she is branching out to do some of the smaller farm animals.

 Fall is just around the corner.

Hope all of our fuzzy friends had an amazing summer.  Wondering what you need to do to get your pets ready for fall and then winter (yes I said it the evil W word) then give the clinic a call and we can help you out.  A few things to be thinking about are deworming.  This goes for horses, dogs and cats.  For the horses you might want to think about having your horses teeth done before the really cold weather hits.  Please call us at (250) 489-1655, for you pets individual needs.

User Reviews

Our 6-year old dog Jessie was acting withdrawn for several months. We went Tanglefoot Vet for her yearly check-up and when they examined her mouth, they suggested that we bring her in for a dental cleaning and check-up. When she had her dental check-up, they found several teeth that had been fractured, so he removed them. Immediately the day after Jessie’s appointment we saw a change in her behaviour. She was like her old self! She was no longer withdrawn and started to play with our other dog again. We can’t thank the vets at Tanglefoot enough for suggesting that we bring Jessie in to get a dental check-up.”
