On The Job
Dr. Vicki Campbell knew that veterinary medicine would be the perfect career to combine her two loves, science and animals. She grew up wanting to help animals, but was even more rewarded when she realized that veterinary medicine also allowed her to help people. After completing her veterinary training, Dr. Campbell spent 10 years as an associate and assistant professor at Colorado State University, where she was also actively involved in the internship training program as both an instructor and a mentor. The multitasking and constant thinking associated with both of her specialties keep her on her toes, and she loves being able to take a case, follow it through anesthesia and take care of it postoperatively.
Dr. Campbell’s residency was designed to make her a perioperative critical care specialist, and she enjoys surgical emergencies for this reason. Her particular areas of interest and much of her research, publications, book chapters and national speaking have been focused on sepsis, SIRS, oxygen delivery, mechanical ventilation, oxygenation and blood gases pulmonary disorders, sedation/pain management of emergency/critical care patients, anesthesia of critical patients, and anesthetic emergencies.

As a mother of five “very spirited” children, three boys and two girls, Dr. Campbell has grown to love sewing her children’s Halloween costumes each year. She also loves amusement parks, hiking, camping and backpacking. A giant breed dog lover, she has had many over the years, but currently has just one, Buddy, a Newfoundland. Her previous dogs include Gandalf, a great Pyrenees; Frodo, a great Pyrenees/Bernese mountain dog; and the love of her life, Dakota, a great Pyrenees/German shepherd that got her through veterinary school. She’s traveled to every state except two and was featured in a children’s book called “ER Vets” by Donna Jackson.
