After 42 years as a veterinarian, and 30+ years practicing at Finger Lakes Animal Hospital, Dr. Campbell has retired.
Dr. Campbell received his Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from Colorado State University in 1970 and his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the New York State Veterinary College at Cornell University in 1974. He completed his Acupuncture Board Certification in 1986 and became a Fellow of the Veterinary Surgical Laser Society in 2002 and the International Veterinary Ultrasound Society in 2008.
In 1980, he purchased Finger Lakes Animal Hospital from Dr. Richard Saunders who had operated the practice since 1950. He is very proud of the longevity of this business's presence in Canandaigua serving the animal owning community. Dr. Campbell has strived to keep his practice up to date in all aspects of providing health care to his patients. The practice focuses on Preventive Medicine as the main goal in delivering the most economical guidance to its clientele.
Dr. Campbell's long presence at Finger Lakes Animal Hospital has given him the opportunity to develop very special relationships with many of his clients and has resulted in memories of many special patients which could fill volumes of pages. It has also allowed him to serve the profession as a long standing member and Past President of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society and also Past President of the Finger Lakes Veterinary Medical Association. He has given back to the community through allowing many students of all levels to intern with the practice and has also mentored countless newly graduated veterinarians as they began their careers.
The fun things Dr. Campbell spends time doing include fishing, golfing, cross country skiing, playing pond hockey with his four sons and their children and managing a timber forest at his home in Naples, New York. He also loves the time he spends at his family retreat in Northern Wisconsin, which gives him plenty of opportunity to fly his little single engine Cessna. The place in Wisconsin also gives him plenty of fix-up jobs to do as the cabin, built in 1930, constantly needs repairs and modifications while at the same time provides the ideal spot for wonderful rest and relaxation.
