I love this vet office. We have been taking our cats to see Dr. Fredlund for three years now, and she takes just as much time to reassure us as she does to check out the pets…The clinic is new and always spotlessly clean. The girls at the front as well as all the vet techs we’ve had have been professional and fun.

We’ve been seeing Dr. Kathy Chappell for YEARS. Starting with our 3 ferrets, and up to now with our dog Duke. Dr. Chappell is amazing, she adores our animals, shows true passion for our job, and we NEVER feel like she’s giving us unnecessary treatments as happens with other vet clinics.

This is by far the best vet clinic that I have found in Edmonton. They used to be located next door to the PetSmart on Calgary Trail but they have since moved into this beautiful new location. All the staff here are great. I have brought all my pets to Dr. Sheffield and she is the best! My animals actually enjoy going to vet and the staff always shower them with loads of attention and treats.

The staff at this hospital has always been incredibly patient and kind with my pets for any procedure they’ve needed to perform. Just the best place to take your fur family.

I followed Dr. van Boxtel to Calgary Trail from her previous clinic because I trust her judgement with my small furry family members. She has provided exceptional guidance and really gone the extra mile in terms of doing research and consulting with specialists for my dog who has three significant diseases. I have absolutely no doubt that without Dr. van Boxtel’s excellent advice and compassionate care that my dog’s duration and quality of life would have both been diminished.

I trust this team with all my beloved pets! Have been bringing all my critters to them for 10 years. I have always received exceptional service! I recommend all my family, friends, and clients to them because I full heartedly trust they will show as much care and compassion they have shown me and my family of furries in the last decade.

Our cat is a very anxious/unfriendly cat, but your staff did everything they could do to decrease her anxiety…Great job by great staff. Very appreciated. It was my first time bringing my cat to your location and it won’t be the last.

So many people talk about the vets themselves that I think they sometimes forget the front liners. This clinic is clean, professional with well-equipped staff. They took incredible care of our cat while she was dying. She passed a week later, but the whole team there made us feel well looked after and cared for. We loved these individuals from day one to the day of her passing. Every aspect of this vet is professional, it’s clean. They’re so caring it’s unbelievable and made us cry for all the right reasons—their wonderfully kind hearts.

Thank you to the staff at Calgary Trail Pet hospital for always taking great care of our bunny Dexter! From day one Doctor Neufeld and his staff have shown nothing but kindness, compassion and love for our Dex! Calgary trail pet hospital truly has the most genuine and intelligent staff in Edmonton!

The entire staff is wonderful. They are kind and patient with our dog and with my girls who have a zillion questions every time we visit. I’m glad we found such a great vet.
