Dr. Kaitlyn Cockerill:
Kaitlyn grew up in Teulon, Manitoba where she was raised around various animals on her family’s acreage. Growing up in this environment, Kaitlyn knew that she wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age. She developed a love of all animals, but her main interest was her family’s horses. Kaitlyn competed in horse shows, participating in eventing, dressage, and hunter/jumper competitions in Western Canada.
Kaitlyn attended the University of Winnipeg where she completed her veterinary pre-requisites and a Biochemistry degree and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014.
Upon graduation, Kaitlyn made the move to Cold Lake with her horse, Nick. Since joining the Cold Lake Veterinary Clinic team she has acquired two dogs and two cats and continues to foster various rescue animals. In her spare time Kaitlyn enjoys training in beginner agility with her dogs and in dressage with her horse. Kaitlyn’s main veterinary interests are small animal medicine and surgery and equine medicine.
