Dr. David Scammell, Veterinarian
Dr. Scammell started working at Pembina Veterinary Hospital as a summer veterinary student, two years before graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 1987. Upon his graduation, he began working as a student at the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital, with five-year tenure at McPhillips Animal Hospital. This is his 30th anniversary of employment with the Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital! One of his particular passions is orthopaedic surgery and Dr. Scammell is constantly striving to hone his skill through hands-on courses and the application of new techniques.
Dr. Scammell has served as president of the Manitoba Veterinary Association and for three years as 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 three-part veterinary licensing process. Completion of the examination is a requirement to be eligible to apply for licensure from any provincial licensing body.
He also serves under the Council of Education of the American Veterinary Medical Association as a site visitor, in a program of 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 endeavors and is the main reason all his clinics have feline support staff. In his spare time, he enjoys catch-and-release fishing, going back home to Newfoundland to see his family, and, of course, spending time with his wife, children, their cats, Bob and Mocha, and two dogs, Tia and Colonel.
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.
Moving from Kenora, Ont in 2011 I have been working in the animal care industry for the past 5 years. Originally working as a Pet Trainer, I discovered a passion for helping people keep their loved family pets happy and healthy. I take great interest in expanding my knowledge of the animal health industry, whether it is through continuing education credits on my own time or picking up shifts at Winnipeg Animal Emergency Hospital. I currently live in Winnipeg with my partner and our fur babies, Bane and Quinn the dogs and Aggie the cat.
