Dr. Kaitlyn Cockerill:
Kaitlyn grew up in Teulon, Manitoba where she was raised around horses, sheep, goats, and various waterfowl 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. Starting at a young age, Kaitlyn competed in horse shows, eventually participating in eventing, dressage, and hunter/jumper competitions at a national level.
Following high school, Kaitlyn attended the University of Winnipeg where she completed her veterinary pre-requisites and a Biochemistry degree. She was accepted into Veterinary School at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2009. During her veterinary schooling, Kaitlyn spent her summers in Winnipeg gaining experience in both small and large animal medicine at Catrysse Veterinary Services and Elder’s Equine Veterinary Clinic.
Upon graduation from Veterinary School in 2014 Kaitlyn made the move to Cold Lake with her boyfriend, Mathew, her geriatric cat “Cookie”, and two of her jumping horses, “Nick” and “Monkey”. Since arriving in Cold Lake, Kaitlyn also acquired a puppy, “Nova”, who she is enjoying participating in beginner agility lessons with. Kaitlyn’s main interest continues to be equine medicine, but she also really enjoys Small Animal Medicine. Kaitlyn is looking forward to gaining experience in both small and large animal medicine and surgery as a part of the Cold Lake Veterinary Clinic team.
