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.

Shelbie - Veterinary AssistantShelbie, Veterinary Assistant

I was born and raised here in Las Vegas and I've had a passion for nature and animals ever since I was little. As I got older, I wanted to pursue a field where I could help animals, so for many years I have done just that. When I'm not tending to pets' needs here at the wellness center, I am spending time with my own pets; Vraska, a mini Aussie mix and Skooma, a red Doberman. We like to be outdoors doing activities such as hiking, cycling and dog training. I enjoy drawing, writing, playing the ukulele and learning about self-improvement along with the psychological and social sciences.


Pat, Veterinary Assistant

Pat was born in Phoenix, Arizona then moved to Japan and finally her family settled in Southern California, where she grew up.  She moved to Las Vegas in 1998 from Southern California.  She is following her lifelong passion to work with animals.  When she has free time, she enjoys traveling, swimming, movies, concerts and playing with her two fur babies - a Golden Retriever, Minnie Latte and a cat, Sweet Pea.

Cherie, ReceptionistCherie

I am originally from Southern California. I moved to Las Vegas in 2000. I am the proud mother of two amazing kids, Alessa who is 8 years old, and Parker, who is 5 years old. I also have 3 fur-babies, a pug named Ginger, Peaches (a mini Poodle mix) and Eddie, a mini Schnauzer. In my spare time, I love to sleep, cook and bake. I also love taking the kids out to somewhere fun. Coffee is a must have on a daily basis! I love tacos, the beach, surfing, reading and enjoying life to the fullest.

Kayla, Receptionist

I was born and raised here in Las Vegas.  I have four fur-babies - Cane, Koda, Tank and Jasper.  Animals have always been a big part of my heart ever since I can remember!  If I am not at work, I am either drawing, hiking with my German Shepherd, Tank or relaxing at home with my Chiweenie, Cane and Jasper, my domestic long-haired cat.

JenniferJennifer, Groomer

Jennifer was born and raised in Las Vegas. She has 1 fur-baby, a whippet, named Cora. Cora is 16 years old and is as wild as ever! She is Jennifer's only "girl" and she loves her to pieces! Jennifer went to pet grooming school and received her Masters All Breed Certification. She has been grooming for 25+ years and absolutely enjoys her job! Working with animals has always been her passion. What she enjoys most about her job is making animals feel clean, confident and well grounded with themselves.

  • "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."
