Dr. Stephanie Ball completed her BSc in Biology from the University of Regina in 1996 and continued on to Saskatoon's Western College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 2000. Small animal medicine has always been her passion and through more recent years she has developed an interest in canine reproduction. Dr. Ball is currently an owner of the Southpointe Pet Hospital and the Fish Creek 24hr Pet Hospital dividing her time between the two clinics. Her outside interests include playing in a local water polo league with an annual sunny trip to California for competition. Much of her spare time is spent with her boyfriend and their furry family of four Bernese Mountain Dogs – Canyon, Boulder, Summit and Ridge.
Dr. Mark Norman graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 and has been practicing in Calgary ever since. However he took some varying career paths before settling into veterinary medicine. He acquired his B.Sc. in Marine Biology from UBC where he was also a member of the championship Thunderbirds football team. A move to Alberta brought him to the CFL playing for the Edmonton Eskimos for 5 years which included a Grey Cup win in 1987. He then went on to complete a B.Ed. from the U of A in 1994. Dr. Norman was also a marine mammal trainer which involved work at facilities close to home as well as internationally, including Florida and Australia. Dr. Norman is currently an owner of the Southpointe Pet Hospital and the Fish Creek 24hr Pet Hospital. He divides his time between these clinics but admittedly has a passion for emergency medicine. Any spare time is spent in Chestermere with his girlfriend and their furry family of four Bernese Mountain Dogs.

Other professional interests include behaviour and reproduction. She has many pets of her own, two Devon Rex cats and 5 dogs who enjoy chasing gophers on 30 acres in Carseland. Her interest outside of work include pretty much anything outdoors or fitness related - distance running, hiking, biking and Crossfit. She is looking forward to competing in obedience, agility and nose work with her newest pup Lisa, a Belgian Malinois.
Dr. Alyssa Eslinger completed her Bachelor of Science in 2008 and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2012, both from the University of Calgary. Alyssa's professional interests include dentistry and anesthesia. When she's not at the clinic, Alyssa enjoys spending time outdoors - hiking, camping and scuba diving. You may also run into Alyssa taking dance lessons or singing karaoke at a local pub.
I drive from the NW all the way to this clinic because they've got the friendliest staff, and very knowledgeable doctors! Every time we've been there we feel that we're getting advice from a friend and they are very reasonable in their prices and recommendations.
