Jamie Hockenhull-Ostrander

Practice Manager/Veterinary Assistant

Jamie's roots trace back to Northern Ontario where she gained her appreciation for animals and nature. After obtaining a zoology degree at the University of Guelph, she moved out west to explore and found herself settling in.

Jamie has three four-legged companions: Kneesa and Ben--two scruffy mongrels who accompany her on most of her travels and Poet the polydactyl who keeps an eye on the house while Jamie and the pups are off on their adventures.

Director of Napping

George came to Sifton Park Veterinary Clinic after a short stint at the city pound in 2012. Dr. Braze gave him a second chance at life after she heard he was going to be put down for urinary issues. After responding to medications and being placed on a special urinary diet, George has thrived and now lives at the clinic. Everyone who comes in knows and loves George and he has become our official greeter.  George rarely leaves his post at the front desk where he can be found fast asleep on his cozy bed. 



Mischief Manager

Nero came to Sifton Park Veterinary Clinic as a stray in 2013. Our intention was to find Nero a forever home but, before we could, we had all fallen in love with him! Nero's extremely friendly temperament and curious nature ensures that all who meet him can't help but smile.  He is a constant source of entertainment in the clinic.
