Dr. Scammell started working at the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital as a student for two years before graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 1987. Upon his graduation, he began working at the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital, with a five-year tenure at McPhillips Animal Hospital. This is his 32nd anniversary of employment with the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital!
One of his passions is orthopedic surgery. He is constantly striving to hone his skills through hands-on-courses and the application of new techniques.
Dr. Scammell has served as past president of the Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association and for 3 years as a council member of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association. Currently, he sits as a member of the National Examining Board of Canada which is responsible for the administration, in Canada, of a 3-part veterinary licensing process. Completion of the exam is a requirement to be eligible to apply for licensure from any provincial licensing body. He also serves on the Council on Education of the American Veterinary Medical Association, a group responsible for the accreditation of colleges of veterinary medicine in North America and abroad.
Having always had a soft spot for cats, he encourages his staff in their kitten fostering and adoption endeavours and is the main reason all of his clinics have feline support staff. In his spare time, he enjoys catch-and-release fishing, going back home to Newfoundland, spending time with his children and his cats; Spud and Squid.
I have been living in Winnipeg for 15 years, and working at Regent Avenue Veterinary Clinic for 13 years. I have always had a love for animals and had pets from a young age. Currently, I have 3 pets, Troy a 12-year old Korat, Rhea a 10-year old Torti, and Sika a 13-year old Collie cross.
