Dr. Audrey Remedios
Even as a young child, Dr. Audrey Remedios always wanted to become a veterinarian. After finishing her veterinary degree, she completed a surgical residency and Master of Veterinary Science program at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. She joined the faculty of WVCM and successfully passed the certifying examinations to become a surgery specialist both in large and small animals as designated by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
After 9 years, she moved to Calgary and established the Western Veterinary Specialist Centre. She started and developed the small animal surgery program in the newly established University of Calgary School of Veterinary Medicine and taught there for 5 years. She continues to teach surgery and orthopedic seminars to many veterinarians to enhance their ongoing skills.
In addition to joining the team at McKnight, Dr. Remedios provides care for the animals from many rescue groups such as the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force, AARCS, and Cochrane and Iqaluit Humane Society. Under the auspices of Veterinarians Without Borders, she is currently helping to develop an animal health program for the Canadian Arctic.
