About Cyntia

Dr. Cyntia is a veterinarian from Brazil and graduated from Londrina State University in 2003. She obtained her Master’s in Veterinary Sciences at the University of Calgary in 2013, and in 2018 she completed the long arduous veterinarian licensing process to practice in North America.

Before coming to Canada, she worked as a veterinarian in jaguar conservation projects in the Brazilian Amazon, Pantanal, and Cerrado regions. Although she enjoyed the adventure, her passion for learning brought her to the Canadian prairies. 

After obtaining her Master’s degree, she moved to Edmonton, where she worked at several other busy veterinary practices, until she joined the team at Edmonton Holistic Vet Clinic in August 2022. 

As a ’conventional medicine’ practitioner, Dr. Kashivakura always wished she could do more to keep her patients comfortable, especially those in compassionate care. She became certified in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care in 2021 and fascinated to learn more about holistic medicine. 

She is currently enrolled to get certified in Veterinary Acupuncture at Chi University and proud to be part of this amazing caring team at the Edmonton Holistic Vet Clinic.
