Dr. Louisa Cammidge joined VCA South County in 2014. She spent her early years moving back and forth between England and Northern California. When her family settled back in the States, she adopted her first pet dog and a devotion to animals quickly followed. Though briefly interested in human medicine, she quickly realized that our beloved pets are often the best remedy for what ails us.
Dr. Cammidge spent several years working in a busy 24-hour practice in San Francisco where she developed an interest in dermatology, internal medicine and ultrasound. She went on to pursue a master's degree in public health, realizing the importance of veterinarians in emergency preparedness and zoonotic diseases. Dr. Cammidge spent the last eight years working as a small animal veterinarian in Tucson, Arizona, and worked for several years at an integrative practice. She received certification in medical veterinary acupuncture when she saw the benefits it offered older arthritic pets. Although a dog lover first, cats are very close to her heart, and she makes sure to treat them with the respect and admiration that they deserve.
Dr. Cammidge has been an active member on the Mid-Coast Veterinary Medical Association Board for the last three years, helping organize continuing education for local veterinarians. She also enjoys volunteering with World Vets, who provide free veterinary services to underserved communities around the world. Recent trips include teaching surgery skills to veterinary students in Ecuador and a spay/neuter program in Albania.
In her spare time, Dr. Cammidge enjoys reading, hiking, and exploring the central coast with her husband and two children. Her cat prefers to stay at home.
