Veterinarian holding onto a black cat

Dr. Jennifer Poulsen

Dr. Jennifer Poulsen, B.Sc, DVM was born and raised in Calgary. She went to the University of Calgary to complete her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences and graduated in 2013. She then moved to St. Kitts, West Indies, to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. She lived in West Lafayette, Indiana, for a year before moving back home after graduating in 2018 and joining the incredible team at Fish Creek 24 Hr Pet Hospital. She has a special interest in emergency medicine but also enjoys surgery and neurology. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, including her four cats (Anna, Kovu, Jane, and Tarzan). She also likes cooking and finding new events and restaurants in the city to try. She hopes to eventually move just outside of the city to a nice, big property for her cats and future dog to enjoy!

In order to maintain value for services along with our high standard of care, Fish Creek Pet Hospital has transitioned to an Urgent Care Model. This transition has taken effect at 10:00pm on Monday, April 12, 2021. Our new operating hours, 7 days per week, will be as follows:


OPEN 6:00am-10:00pm for urgent care and hospital admissions

If possible, please call us at 403.873.1700 to let us know you are on the way so that we can be prepared to meet you upon your arrival at the hospital.

When you arrive, please stay in your vehicle in our parking lot and call 403.873.1700, and we'll come to you.

If you do not have a phone or your pet's emergency is immediately life-threatening, please come to the front door and ring the bell located to the right of the door.
