Jocelyn Fredlund bio

Dr. Jocelyn Fredlund

Veterinarian/Owner

Dr. Fredlund has wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as she can remember. She grew up with hamsters, dogs, cats, rats, snakes, and even a crow in her family.

Dr. Fredlund graduated in 1998 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, then moved to Edmonton to begin her regular practice. She also has experience in emergency, rehab, and shelter medicine. She believes that the best veterinary practices emphasize communication with pet owners to ensure they are making choices that are best for them and their furry friends.

Dr. Fredlund is in a committed relationship with Pickles the horse, Lily the greyhound cross, Blueberry, Mango, and Freya the cats, and a few humans.

Britney Chadbourn

Client Care Specialist

Britney started working in the veterinary industry in 2014, but her love of animals came long before then. Growing up, she was actively involved in horseback riding and was always trying to sneak a new (stray) animal into her parents’ house.

Today, Britney shares her home with two cats, Kitten and Hunter, and two dogs, Jagger and Myley. Britney’s boyfriend can also be spotted amongst the fur babies.

In her spare time, you’ll find Britney exploring the outdoors. They love hopping in the camper (yes, kitties too!) for weekend getaways in the wilderness.

Client Care Specialist

Kelly entered veterinary medicine in 2013 while she was enrolled in the Bachelor of Science program at the University of Alberta. She developed an interest in animal behaviour, health, disease, and nutrition. After graduating, she followed her passion and continued to work in the veterinary industry. She appreciates the Brintnell Veterinary Hospital team's emphasis on providing an exceptional standard of care.

When she isn't working, she enjoys cuddling with her black cat Bagheera, reading thriller-suspense novels, training with her hip-hop crew, and spending time with family and friends.
