Depiction in the series

Season two

Who's a good Spike S2E10
Dr. Fauna first appears in Secret of My Excess; Twilight Sparkle brings Spike to her office when he starts exhibiting uncontrollable growth spurts. Dr. Fauna is unable to diagnose Spike because she treats normal animals like dogs and snakes, not dragons. She treats Spike like a dog and gives him a dog treat.

Season seven

In Fluttershy Leans In, Dr. Fauna's animal clinic becomes crowded with animals, so Fluttershy establishes an animal sanctuary to both lighten her workload and provide a haven for animals to recuperate. Dr. Fauna also appears in Secrets and Pies during Pinkie Pie's investigation of Rainbow Dash.

Season nine

In The Beginning of the End - Part 2, Dr. Fauna is one of King Sombra's mind-controlled slaves until the Mane Six defeat him.

Mane Cureall, Veteran Vet card MLP CCG
In Enterplay's collectible card game, Dr. Fauna is named Mane Goodall with a trademark symbol on her Gen Con Indy 2013 demo card, and she is named "Mane Cureall" on card α #89 R. Both cards list her quote "I've always had a good rapport with animals. Still don't know the first thing about dragons, though."


"Hm, well, I'm flummoxed. Y'bring me a dog, I've got it diagnosed in seconds. Snake even faster, but... to be honest, I've never seen a real live dragon before."

"Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy? Sit."

"I'm flummoxed! Every day, there's more and more animals on my doorstep. Most of them just have minor ailments – hurt wings, stuffy noses, and such. But the trouble is even after they're all healed up, I can't seem to get these comfy critters to leave!"
Fluttershy Leans In
"I've always had a good rapport with animals. Still don't know the first thing about dragons, though."
