Dr. Mann moved to Canada with his family in the year 2000 and quickly completed the rigorous veterinary examination process to obtain his license to practice veterinary medicine in Canada and the United States. He passed his Clinical Proficiency Examination at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon.
