Dr. Gerald Campbell - Founding Partner
The Animal Ark Pet Hospital was founded in 1987 by Dr. Gerald Campbell with the goal of providing top quality pet care in a professional and friendly atmosphere. Our clients and pets were coming from Erie and the surrounding areas, and in 1998, we opened our second location, Animal Kingdom Pet Hospital, to meet our increased demands for our services. Both hospitals are fully equipped and staffed to provide complete veterinary care, including orthopedics, dermatology, dentistry, internal medicine, in-house laboratory testing, radiology, ultrasound and telemedicine consultations, nutritional counseling and behavioral evaluations and treatment. Our additional partners include Curtis Murphey, Kevin Ramey, Michael Watts, Valerie Reamer and Robert Jung. The diverse and varied educational backgrounds representing 6 different veterinary schools provide the opportunity for your pet to receive the best possible care. Our staff is well trained to answer all of your pet related questions and takes pride in being a major component of our health care team. We constantly strive to enhance our knowledge and communication skills to ensure that owners understand the treatments recommended by our doctors. We also realize the importance of preventative medicine, or wellness care, to ensure that your pet lives both a long and high quality life. We guard dearly the trust our clients place in us for the care of their beloved pets. At both our hospitals, quality care blended with compassion facilitates our mutual goal, which is the best patient care possible.
