Samuel Baum, Staff Veterinarian


Dr. Samuel Baum graduated from Cornell  University with his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1976. Practicing in Central Virginia, Amherst  County, and Lynchburg  has been his passion for forty years. VCA Amherst  Veterinary Hospital  had its beginnings as both a small and large animal practice in the late 1970's. Dr. Baum's commitment to excellence in animal care has seen the practice grow to four full time veterinarians, and an excellent staff. He is proud of the work and care VCA Amherst  Veterinary Hospital has given to  Central Virginia and Lynchburg. He has also written several veterinary articles that have appeared in national veterinary journals.

Dr. Baum is happily married with three children, four dogs and three cats. He considers himself blessed to be practicing veterinary medicine, since it was his lifelong dream from the time he was a child. He is most satisfied when he is able to make an animal happy to repay the joy animals continue to bring into his life. Dr. Baum pursues his career and his life with a constant curiosity
and hard work, which combine to make him one of the best veterinarians in Virginia.
