Meet the friendly staff at Kingsley Animal Hospital!
Thomas A. Fredenhagen, DVM (aka “Dr. Fred”) was born in St. Augustine, FL and raised in Palatka, FL. He attended St. Johns River Junior College and the University of Florida, before receiving his DVM degree from Auburn University in 1976.
Karen Fredenhagen has been a Veterinary Technician for more than 25 years. Her areas of extensive experience include surgery, special needs, nutrition, acupuncture / homeopathy (studied under Dr. Peggy Flemming for four years), behavioral counseling and laser therapy.
Tammi started in veterinary medicine in the summer of 1991 in South Carolina. When her family moved to Florida in 1994, she continued as a technician at a general practice office in Jacksonville. She has been at Kingsley Animal Hospital since 2000.
Grace joined the Kingsley Animal Hospital family in February 2015. Her love for animals shows every day when she walks through the door, as well as through her volunteer work with organizations such as the Jacksonville Zoo and wildlife rescue centers.
Samantha officially joined our team in February 2017, though she had previously been seen in our rooms quietly observing Dr. Fred which is needed for vet school. She graduated from the University of North Florida in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and aspires to be a veterinarian one day. Samantha’s love of animals runs deep, but has specific affections for dogs, cats, horses, and wolves.
Clyde was a kitten that came to us from the Safe Animal Shelter in 2001. He greets everyone as they walk into the hospital. He loves to be petted and have his belly rubbed, and may even climb up on your shoulder.
