About Brittney L Fraser

Dr. Fraser, of Bunnell, Florida, graduated from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine in 2017. During veterinary school she completed the Maddie’s Certificate of Shelter Medicine, practicing high quality, high volume spay and neuter surgeries, as well as herd-health techniques at clinics across the state of Florida prior to graduation. While in school, she also began working as a student technician within the Intensive Care Unit at the UF Small Animal Hospital, as well as at UF Pet Emergency Treatment Services in Ocala. Through this experience, she uncovered her passion for emergency medicine and decided to pursue a career in emergency medicine.

Upon graduation, Dr. Fraser moved to Sarasota, Florida where she worked at 24-hour emergency and specialty hospitals within the region. Working at 3 different hospitals within the area gave her a significant volume of experience in a variety of emergency settings. Despite the joy she found working ER, she missed academia where she was able to share her enthusiasm with students, see the challenging cases that present to a tertiary referral facility, and work with some of the brightest minds in each of their specialties, which led her to return to the UF Small Animal Hospital as an ER Clinical Lecturer in 2018. This role enables her to continue to practice emergency medicine, but alongside students, while pursuing other interests in research and personal development. Her primary interests include management of toxins, addisonian crisis, and snake envenomation.

Dr. Fraser and her husband, Shanon Waters, reside in Gainesville, Florida along with their two dogs (Marlie Mae and Tater Tot) and one cat (Zara), all of which were acquired during her time at the UF CVM. In her spare time she enjoys crafting, dancing, scuba diving, traveling, skiing, and of course, snuggling her fur babies.
