Dr. Marcia Lembo

Dr. Marcia Lembo

Veterinarian

 

Passionate about animals since I was little, I decided to be a veterinarian at the age of 5. I grew up going every weekend to my grandfather’s dairy farm and horses and cats have always been my passion. I graduated in 2000 from the University of S=E3o Paulo, which is ranked among the best 50 in the world, I did a master’s degree in surgery and specialized in feline medicine. Married for 20 years, I am the mother of a 9-year-old girl and 4 cats. I love going to the movies and doing jigsaw puzzles and when I can I like to take long walks on horseback. Moving to Canada has always been a dream and I have lived here for 3 years with my whole family.

Dr. Kevin Breker has come back from retirement to do the work he loves part-time! Kevin graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1980. Dr. Breker has been living in Peace River since 1982. He works mainly out of the Peace River but when needed, he will head down to the High Prairie clinic as well. Kevin’s focus is working on large animals. He has a strong interest in equine dentistry, dairy herd health and beef herd health. Despite spending such long days on the road with his clients, Kevin finds time to regularly swim. In the summer he loves to canoe, hunt, fish, compete in triathlons and scuba dive. Kevin has been instrumental in developing the University of Calgary’s Distant Veterinary Teaching Hospital. He is a great mentor and enjoys taking students on his calls to show them the ropes of large animal veterinary medicine. The great Dr. Breker says that “there is no magic” when it comes to dealing with large animal issues, however, most of the veterinarians he works with agree that the art of veterinary medicine just seems to come naturally to him.
