Dr. R. Stockburger
I was born and raised in Medicine Hat, Alberta. My family always had pets of one kind or another, including a tarantula. Being a Veterinarian was something I wanted for myself. Starting in high school, I worked part time cleaning kennels at a Veterinary Clinic and loved being there. With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work, I was able to join the best profession on the planet. That said, a modern animal hospital is made up of a multitude of skilled professionals. I have been fortunate to find a group of caring and dedicated staff that let me focus on being the best Veterinarian I can be. Their dedication, help and skill lets me enjoy my profession even more. While attending Veterinary school at the University of Saskatchewan, I met and married another Veterinarian. We relocated to Manitoba after graduating from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. Right now we are blessed with 3 beautiful kids, two cats, and a Labrador. The very best thing about being a Veterinarian is watching my human clients enjoying their animal family members. What could be a more rewarding career than helping families enjoy a long, healthy life together?
In my spare time, you'll more likely find me in a rink with all the other Ringette and Hockey Moms. I especially enjoy rabbit and pocket pet medicine.
Dr. I.T. Bularca
Born in the mountains of Romania, I grew up in a farm-like setting. My parents used to have dairy, swine, sheep and poultry. Of course we always had dogs and cats around. Naturally I was interested in their health status, in helping with their examinations, sample taking and treatments. Even though I studied history and literature, then mathematics and physics, to become a veterinarian was a continuous, gradual progress. I graduated from the veterinary college in Timisoara, Romania, in 1993. I practiced in mixed animal clinics in Europe, then later on in Canada. I joined McPhillips Animal Hospital in 2008 and found a very professional and dedicated team here. I am very happy to put my very best knowledge and experience at work to improve the level of life of our extended family members.

His professional interests include preventative medicine and surgery. He lives with his wife Lisa, their dog Sophie and their cat Chester.

Veterinary Office Assistants
I have been working as a receptionist at McPhillips Animal Hospital since December 2008, and I have enjoyed every moment of it! Ever since I was young, animals have been a major part of my life and I always dreamed about working in a Veterinary Hospital. I feel very fortunate to be working with such knowledgeable staff who care and go out of their way for animals every day, and treat them as if they were their own.
I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends, as well as with my four legged babies. I enjoy waterskiing and spending time out at my cabin in the summer, and in the winter, I enjoy snowmobiling.
I took a course from Robertson College as a Veterinary Office Assistant and graduated in January of 2011, ever since then I became a part of the McPhillips animal hospital team! I enjoy being here and learning new things every day. The staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable in what they do. When it comes to animals, they treat them as if they were their own pets. I currently own a Doberman pinscher name “Saydee” and a silver tabby name “Kirah”.
Animals have always been my passion, whether they’re large or small or anything in between. Since 2014 I’ve had the privilege of being a part of the McPhillips Animal Hospital team to help provide the best care for animals in need. I’ve got quite the zoo at home and you can often find my husband and I taking care of the animals that we love so much.
Horseback riding is my passion but I also enjoy anything outdoors. camping and hiking, especially when the dogs join us, running, biking, skiing, etc.
Growing up, I often visited my grandparent’s hobby farm, where I spent lots of time with their barn cats and dog. I’ve always loved animals, and I am grateful that I now get to work with them everyday.
Right now I don’t have any pets, but would love to adopt a dog sometime in the future.
I enjoying travelling, spending time outdoors, playing the piano, and being with family and friends!
I’ve been accepted to the Veterinary Technology course at Red River College, and look forward to starting in 2022.
I adore my pets - Ireland, a bossy Dorkie and Wellington, a mushy Tuxedo cat. I enjoy the outdoors, going to the cabin and being with my family. My hobbies include sewing, quiliting, building and learning to fix things, and learning to drive a barge.
I have always had a passion for animals all my life, I did volunteer work with different rescues until I was fortunate to have joined the Mc Phillips Animal hospital team in September 2020. I love working here and seeing all the furry faces when they come into the clinic and give them all the pets and love. I currently had 4 pets of my own, I have a great Pyrenees named Nanuk (Nanuk means polar bear) which he looks like it and is the size of one. I also have 3 cats named Licious, E, and Blu.
On my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son and fiancé, we like to go camping and spend time at the lake during the summertime.
Throughout my life I’ve always been surrounded by animals. My main interest being dogs. In my house we have 2 dogs Zeus & Yota. They both keep me on toes. Between the two of them it’s never a dull moment. I love spending my spare time with my family & friends while as well as my fur babies! I am super lucky to be apart of a team that makes me feel like my animals are a priority as well as part of the family.
I love animals and being able to work with animals for my career is really exciting!
I like travelling. I love seeing new places and eating different foods from around the world.
I have always had a strong love and passion for animals, as I grew up always having at least one dog in our family and frequently visiting my great aunt and uncle’s farm which consists of cattle, miniature ponies, sheep and goats. I started riding when I was 8 years old and now have one of my own that I see and ride almost every day.
I am pursuing a degree in Animal Systems at the University of Manitoba with the goal to have a career working with animals. I am grateful to be able to work at McPhillips Animal Hospital with such a great group of people who share the same love for animals that I have.
That bundle of joy is my dog, Nova, and she inspired me to try chasing my dream of veterinary medicine again. Being a vet was my dream since I could speak, but following high school I ended up in nursing instead. I did 2 years and still felt a passion for animals, so I left and will be starting a degree in Animal Systems at the University of Manitoba.
I grew up in Winnipeg but now live in Selkirk. McPhillips Animal Hospital is where we took our pets when I was a little kid, so this is where the dream all began! It feels very “full circle” to now be working here decades later, but it’s been amazing and I can’t wait to continue my path in the animal world.
I have always loved animals and wanted to work in veterinary medicine since I was a child. I have enjoyed working at McPhillips Animal Hospital since 2000. I especially enjoy getting to know clients and their pets. I love to see you and your pets out and about enjoying each other’s company! My family consists of my husband and two daughters, our husky mix, Dylan, and our shepherd mix, Baxter.
I love spending my time with family and friends (human and animal), spending as much time as possible outdoors, volunteering in my community, learning new things, and being a board member for the I AM Festival. I am passionate about exploring new music, and taking in as many local concerts as I can, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival.
