Dr. Jamie Freeman-Braganca
Hello! My name is Dr. Jamie Freeman-Braganca and I am happy to be one of the associate veterinarians at Parkside Animal Hospital. I grew up in Southern Ontario, but my family is from Timmins and I spent many summers there as a child. One of the main reasons that I would look forward to coming up North was that there were always lots of dogs to play with and, because of these happy memories, Northern Ontario has always had a special place in my heart. I have spent the last 10 years working in veterinary practice and for 8 of those years, I also pursued my studies in veterinary medicine at the University of Guelph.
When I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2018 I was very excited to start my career at the Parkside Animal Hospital. I share my house with an old soul of a shih-tzu mix named Max and a sweet three-legged feline named Willow. Our family pets back home on the farm are a Newfoundlander named Charlotte, a french bulldog named Olive, a rough collie named Levi and two kitties named Socrates and Seamus. When I am practicing medicine I always think of our family pets and treat my patients how I hope my own pets would be cared for. My special interests are surgery, behaviour, nutrition and shelter medicine. I look forward to meeting you and helping care for your furry family members!
