Dr. Wendy James


Dr. Wendy James completed her Bachelor of Science in Vancouver at Simon Fraser University and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in 2000. Dr. Wendy's passion is allergic skin disease and she completed her Certificate of Advanced Veterinary Practice in Dermatology in September 2016 from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. She also has a certificate in natural nutrition from the College of Integrative Veterinary Medicine. More information on skin/allergy consults can be found at http://www.drwendy-itchypetvet.com. Dr. Wendy has been with Southpointe Pet Hospital from the first day it opened and enjoys the long term relationships she has with many of her clients and patients.

Other professional interests include behaviour and working/sport dog medicine. She has many pets of her own, 3 Devon Rex cats and 6 dogs who enjoy chasing gophers on 30 acres. Her interests outside of work include pretty much anything outdoors plus competing in agility and scent detection with her Belgian Malinois. Dr. Wendy also is the Team Veterinarian for Canada Task Force 2 an urban search and rescue organization.


Southpointe Pet Hospital is committed to doing our part in protecting our community from the spread of COVID-19. To allow us to continue operating during the pandemic, we have implemented a CLOSED DOOR POLICY.

For the safety of our staff, clients and our entire community, ONLY ONE CLIENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO ACCOMPANY THEIR PET INTO THE BUILDING AT A TIME, and A MASK MUST BE WORN TO ENTER.

When you arrive in our parking lot, please remain in your vehicle and call (403) 532-0085. Our staff will advise you on when you can enter for your appointment, or deliver prescriptions and food orders to your vehicle. For safety reasons, please be prepared to pay with CREDIT or DEBIT, as cash will not be accepted. If you do not have a phone or if your animal is experiencing an emergency, please knock on the door to alert our staff.

As of June 29, 2020, we are resuming normal scheduling of non-urgent appointments, including annual exams, vaccinations, spays and neuters with clients present.

Hours of Operation
Monday to Saturday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through this situation together.
