About Dr Shauna Cantwell, DVM, MVSc, Dipl ACVAA, CVA, CVSMT/CAVCA, CTN - Dr Cantwell was raised in the Canadian Prairie Provinces. She earned her veterinary degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1989. After graduation, she worked in mixed and small animal practice before returning to the University of Saskatchewan to complete a residency and master's degree in anesthesiology and earn her board certification in veterinary anesthesia and analgesia.

She then served as a faculty member on the Anesthesia Service at the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine for ten years, working not only in the clinic, but being funded for research and publishing in the areas of basic science, anesthesia, and acupuncture. In addition to teaching veterinary students, interns, and residents, she has lectured extensively in the areas of anesthesia and acupuncture.

Her holistic training includes acupuncture from Chi University, veterinary spinal manipulation from the Healing Oasis, veterinary postural rehabilitation, and medical qigong.

In 2007, she left academics to start her own practice, Medicine Wheel Veterinary Services in Ocala, Florida, where she serves both equine and small animal patients and provides anesthesia consultation.
