Eatonton pet owners will soon have a new veterinarian in town to take care of their furry friends. Campbell Veterinary Hospital will hopefully be opening sometime in January according to Dr. Dean Campbell, the owner and sole veterinarian practitioner for the new animal hospital.

Dr. Campbell graduated from the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and has worked as a mixed practitioner since then.

“I have been practicing for a little over 14 years, the last 12 years in the Milledgeville area,” he says. “I’m excited to start a new chapter in my life and be able to provide a unique and compassionate approach to veterinary medicine for Eatonton and surrounding areas.”

He says he decided to open an animal hospital in Eatonton after he saw a need in middle Georgia for pet healthcare that is focused on preventative services, care and medicine. He plans on working primarily with small animals like dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets but says with his experience as a mixed practice veterinarian the hospital will try to help with all pets big or small.

The hospital will provide normal exams, medical treatment, vaccines, dental work and spays and neuters for local pet owners. The facility will also provide convenient services for pet owners like a drive-thru pharmacy and pet owners will also be able to send refill requests online. The hospital will also use text messaging to remind owners of appointments and to update them on their pet’s health.

The Campbell Veterinary Hospital standard is “Yearly preventative bloodwork, radiographs, urinalysis….just like our doctors do for us.” Dr. Campbell says preventative care will be a main focus for the pets in his care.

“Our goal is to catch illness before it causes irreversible damage,” said Dr. Campbell “We know that discovering illness early is crucial to having a positive outcome. Having a baseline for comparison also helps catch things before they become a problem.”

The hospital is located at 102 Walmart Drive and is currently accepting resumes for staff at and on
