She has a light yellow coat, two-tone blue mane and tail, brown eyes, and a cutie mark of a dog's head, cat's head, and white bird. She is named "Dr. Fauna" in the show and "Mane Goodall" and "Mane Cureall" in merchandise.
DevelopmentDr. Fauna's merchandise-given name is a play on primatologist Jane Goodall, the same basis as Ruby Redheart.
Depiction in the seriesDr. Fauna appears in the season two episode 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.
In the season seven episode 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.
Dr. Fauna appears in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #54 in her same role as in Fluttershy Leans In.
Dr. Fauna is a character in Gameloft's mobile game under the name "Mane Goodall".
