Dr. Cassandra Fraser, DVM

Associate Veterinarian

Ever since I was young, I was in love with animals and was interested in all kinds, but especially dogs and horses. I completed my veterinary studies in July 2016 from the University of Glasgow's Veterinary School in Scotland.

I was previously working in Fredericton and was seeking a position closer to the family. I joined the team in October 2017. I greatly enjoy those first kitten/puppy visits, where you really have an opportunity to bond with the client and their new family member. Having the chance to help clients navigate through any questions or concerns is very rewarding. I am particularly interested in orthopedics and developing my skills in this field.

I love being able to interact with animals and practicing preventative medicine. The compassionate and supportive staff. Everyone at the clinic is involved with providing excellent care for every patient that comes through the door. You can really tell how much they love their job and work very well together!

I really enjoy skiing, playing hockey and rugby. My first personal pet was a hamster named "Can."
