Allan Fredrickson grew up in Southwestern Manitoba, Canada and attended the college of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Upon graduation he accepted an associate position in a mixed animal, full service veterinary hospital in Mount Vernon, Washington. He has four grown children and lives with his wife Barbara in Mount Vernon.

When Dr. Friedson approached the horse he ran his hand along the neck under the mane then down her face and over her nose. He reached up and felt her ears. He slowly slid his hand into her mouth and gently wrapped his hand around her tongue.

On the morning Snoot was to be taken from his friends, Alton took him to a quiet spot in the woods behind the duck pond to play together and have time to say goodbye. As he scratched the pig's belly, snoot looked up at him and grunted as if he understood every word that was being said.

When Rachel walked in in she couldn't believe her eyes. Mrs. Martin was pressed right against the wall with her daughter lying on the floor between her legs. Dr. Friedson had the dog cradled in his arms protecting the large injury along its back. Dr. Friedson had seen many gruesome sights during his time in practice but this was the worst wire cut he had been called to treat. The fright and pain of the horse, the massive destruction of tissue, and the anguish and anxiety of the owners, was overwhelming.

About the author (2011)

Dr. Fredrickson was raised the son of a Lutheran minister in the small town of Deloraine on the southern plains of Manitoba. He received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota in 1963 and upon graduation, he and his family moved to Mount Vernon, Washington, where he and Barbara continue to live and work.

Dr. Fredrickson accepted the position of associate veterinarian in a well-established mixed animal practice and provided veterinary service to a variety of family pets and domestic animals. After seven years he realized his interests were with horses, not with cows, and he opened his own veterinary clinic, limiting the practice to horses and small animals. Fourteen years later he sold the equine practice and opened the first of five small animal surgery clinics.

Upon retirement he plans to pursue a few hobbies, engage in recreational activities, and do some traveling to visit family and friends and enjoy the sights and cultures of our own great land and some foreign countries.

Dr. Fredrickson says, “Veterinary Medicine has been good to me and my family and, even after an extremely difficult day, I have never regretted my decision to become a veterinarian. By having provided medical care to many animals over the years I feel fulfilled, satisfied and content that I lived up to the statements in the Veterinary Oath. I am convinced that my time and efforts served a purpose. I am richly blessed.”
