Dr. Christina Barbier has a handsome son, Grant. She also has two feline kids, Midnight and Isabella, as well as Phoebe, a Maltese. She is a native of New Orleans. After attending the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, Dr. Barbier went on to graduate from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2000. Upon graduation, she relocated to Las Vegas and has worked as a small animal practitioner. In the past, she participated in several mission trips with the Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (PEIVDF).

Although there have been many extraordinary new medical advances, Dr. Barbier decided to go back to school to study the centuries old technique of acupuncture to enhance the traditional medical care of her patients. She received her formal training at THE CHI INSTITUTE under the world-renowned holistic veterinarian, Dr. Huisheng Xie. After studying both western and eastern medical practices, she has gained an understanding of how the two approaches can work together and integrates them in her patient care. Thus, Dr. Barbier practices INTEGRATIVE medicine- a combination of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine and conventional western medicine to diagnose and treat her patients. She uses modalities such as acupuncture, essential oil therapy, herbal therapy and food therapy.

After having her own relief veterinary company here in Las Vegas, Dr. Barbier decided to pursue her dream of opening a wellness center and pet resort. This facility would enable her to treat both ends of the leash. It has taken nearly 3 years for Dr. Barbier’s vision to materialize into Magnolia Pet Wellness Center.

  • "Dr. Barbier is very compassionate. Unfortunately, my first experience with her was due to my cat's illness and he did not survive. But, she made this experience so much better. The staff is also very nice and helpful."
    Lynda C
  • "Dr. Barbier is the best! We just moved to LV from Florida and had to take our Jack Russell Terrier "Cash" to the Vet for tummy issues. He can be somewhat aggressive when scared and Dr. B handled him so well! She even sat on the floor with him and had a great doggie bedside manner! I also liked her and felt she genuinely cared about my dog and took time to answer all my questions! They have cute dog beds for exam tables, which was a nice change from the cold metal exam tables. The staff was also excellent. Prices were fair too. Highly recommend."
