Dr. Tara Frisch

While volunteering at Pembina Valley Veterinary Clinic in high school, she discovered that veterinary medicine provided the perfect combination of her passions: animals, science, and agriculture. Tara completed her pre-veterinary studies in the Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba and went on to graduate from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2021.

Tara began her career at the Morden Veterinary Clinic as a mixed-animal practitioner, having special interests in equine practice, bovine practice, and small animal surgery.

Walli hails from the village of Schanzenfeld, MB. He graduated from the School of Hard Knocks when he was a tiny kitten, which led to a residency at our practice, and now an illustrious career. His specialties include patient warming, crate inspecting, door greeting, and insect control. He is a professional sleeper and eater. On holidays and weekends, he enjoys downtime with his girl Emiko. Though he goes by many names (Walter-Pants, Wallace, and Walli-Pop to name a few), he prefers to be known as The Boss.
