Dr. Natasha Russell DVM
Dr. Natasha Russell is the newest member of the Delton Veterinary Hospital family, and is happy working with their highly proficient professional team and is very proud of their community work, big hearts and gold standards of quality veterinary care.
Natasha graduated from the University of Chile’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. She also has an undergraduate Honours Degree in Biochemistry. Prior to working at Delton vet, she worked in relief and aid work and emergency medicine. Her ongoing love for medicine inspires her to strive to take on ever more challenging cases. Her interests not only include preventative medicine, but endocrinology and emergency medicine.
Natasha, enjoys working with her clients as much as she does their pets! She understands the challenges owners struggle with when a pet is sick. Her contribution is not only to effectively diagnose and treat her patients but to also minimize stress and frustration on her clients by empowering them with the information they need to make educated decisions for their pets to prevent illness, disease and accidents in the future.
As a kid, she was always busy “saving” abandoned dogs, cats, mice and even insects. She was captivated by the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the movie Lady and the Tramp, and she always stayed up past her bedtime to watch Saturday Night Live. Today, she is the annoying person who knows the words to every song on every road trip, a compulsive pen buyer and Value Village fashionista. She supports Pluto as a planet, pizza as a food group, and Clifford the Big Red Dog as educational television. Natasha’s current passions include: ideas for sustainable economies, balanced development focused on preservation and conservation of ecosystems, thought leadership, helping people and their animal families; volunteering in the community and tango dancing. When not buried under journal article readings, she also enjoys fulfilling her inner-foodie.
In May 2016, Natasha became Vice President of Edmonton’s Association of Small Animal Veterinarians and is thrilled to stand alongside the board and executive of an organization that prides itself in preserving Edmonton’s sense of veterinary community while providing quality continuing education as Edmonton’s veterinary industry charts its course forward. You can also catch her “Ask a Vet” column in the Country Asides newspaper and live on-air on 630 CHED’s radio show PET TALK.
