In 2012 Dr. Katy Campbell completed a one-year internship at WestVet; our team of doctors and specialists were delighted when she agreed to join our animal surgical center permanently.
WestVet is pleased to announce that Dr. Campbell joined our team in September, following her three-year surgical residency.
Her educational achievements include undergraduate work at George Fox University in Newberg, OR (2004 -2008) and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Oregon State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012.
Just prior to graduation from vet school, she was selected from a highly competitive applicant pool for a one-year Rotating Small animal Internship (2012-13) at our specialty hospital. While working at WestVet she exhibited a professional demeanor, affinity for surgical services, and warm and communicative interaction with clients and our entire team.
2013-2016 brought Dr. Campbell to Pennsylvania where she completed a three-year surgical residency at the Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center. Her research paper, accepted for publication in the Journal of Veterinary Surgery, is entitled “Outcome of Tibial Closing Wedge Osteotomy in 55 Cranial Cruciate Ligament-Deficient Stifles of Small Dogs.” Up next, as a Diplomate candidate, Dr. Campbell must successfully pass board examinations in the area of veterinary specialty, something slated for spring of 2017.
Veterinary Specialty Care.
When specialized veterinary expertise is required, your family veterinarian may refer you to a specialist. Our specialists serve as a valuable resource in providing advanced medicine and care as he/she collaborate with your family veterinarian on specific treatments.
The letters following a specialists’ name indicate their area of focus beyond veterinary school and the specialty college. For example, “DACVS” stands for Diplomate American College of Veterinary Surgeons. It is listed after the name of a board certified veterinary surgeon who has met all of the requirements.
WestVet is pleased to offer the services of 18 veterinary specialists who provide 11 specialty disciplines that are recognized by the American Veterinary of Medical Association. Dr. Campbell joins three other board certified veterinary surgeons and our highly-skilled technicians and support staff at WestVet.
Dr. Campbell has received numerous honors throughout her educational pursuits, both in the classroom and on the basketball court, you may read her full bio HERE.
She and her fiancé Justin, and their active Labrador Retriever “Bear” are all outdoor enthusiasts. When she’s not working, you may find the three of them enjoying the many recreational activities that the Treasure Valley has to offer.
We were delighted when she agreed to return to join our WestVet surgical team. Dr. Campbell is seeing patients four days a week.
