Dr. Sandra Fazakas, BA, BSc, DVM

Director of Medicine

Our pets are dear to us. They provide us with untold stories of laughter and joy, and comfort us in our times of need. They are our family. As the medical director and proud owner of Campbellville Animal Hospital, I wish to welcome you and your pets into our family.

In 1999 I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph. I have been practising veterinary medicine ever since and have cared for countless patients over the years. What surprises me is how so many of those people and their pets have enriched my life. It has given me an insight into what makes a good veterinary experience for everyone. It is with this in mind that I hope to achieve the best possible experience for you and your beloved pet here at our hospital.

Campbellville Animal Hospital is a proud member of the hamlet of Campbellville just west of downtown Milton. We are regularly and actively involved in the local community because we feel that community matters.

I decided to choose the motto “Medical Excellence, Compassionate Care, Hometown Hospitality” because I feel those statements represent us so well. Our highly experienced and knowledgeable team of veterinarians use the latest technologies to provide excellent diagnostic and therapeutic options for your pet. Our skilled technicians and support staff are all animal lovers too, here to provide the extra comforts and care in times of need. Finally, our hospital has always had the warmth and friendliness of a small town establishment.

I am usually busy in the background maintaining the hospital for which I am so proud however when I am not working you will find me SCUBA diving, hiking, gardening or playing with my two rescue cats Marcel and Rincewind.

“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”

Dr. Elizabeth Pask, PhD, DVM, CCRP

Veterinarian

After graduating with a PhD in nutrition and toxicology in 2010, I began a journey to fulfill a life-long passion of animal medicine. In 2014, I graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College, having developed a passion for dog sports and rehabilitation medicine a long time before that.

I have completed my certification in canine rehabilitation (CCRP at the University of Tennessee). I also enjoy helping dogs and cats stay healthy in general practice.

Currently, I have 2 Labradors, Soleil and Evie. I regularly compete in a variety of dog sports with them.

Dr. Graham Balson, BSc, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Graham graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1989 and began practicing at a mixed animal clinic in the Grey-Bruce region where he had many adventures.  He decided to return to the veterinary college to obtain additional training in pathology and began to focus on small animal medicine.  For many years since he has practiced emergency medicine, saving the lives of pets requiring urgent care. 

Dr. Graham now enjoys small animal practice and the benefits of developing relationships with the families of his patients.  He believes in a client focused approach to patient care, making the owner a part of the process when it comes to deciding on health care for their pets.  His special interests include surgery and internal medicine.  He loves playing medical ‘detective’, trying to figure out what is wrong with a patient when they can’t tell him how they feel. 

Dr. Graham and his wife Michelle share their home with their three busy children and a myriad of pets including 5 cats, a silly labradoodle named Marshall and several chickens. In his spare time you’ll find him playing or coaching hockey, skiing, golfing or gardening.

Dr. Graham looks forward to caring for all our wonderful clients and their pets in the coming years.

Lesley

Receptionist

Lesley comes to us with 20 years experience within the Veterinary field, mostly in big city clinics and Specialty/Referral. When she was given the chance to join the Campbellville team as a Receptionist, she jumped at it as small town living is now where her heart lies. Lesley has worn many hats, from working as a sous chef to directing live radio, but animal care is her biggest love. She shares her home with her husband Richard, and is owned by 3 cats: Tigger, Dexter and a very special, special needs boy named Buster Kitten. Her spare time is spent practicing yoga and giving back to the wildlife on their property, who let these humans live in their world.

Caroline

Receptionist

Caroline joins us with a wealth of animal knowledge and experience. She is the friendly voice who answers the phone and assists clients with questions and concerns. Her outgoing personality and helpful disposition make her a great customer service representative. With a history of working for the humane society in the animal protection field and having a hobby farm she has a diverse background. She shares her home with her husband and adorable daughters, 2 dogs, 2 horses, 2 goats and 13 chickens. Caroline is currently home on maternity leave.

Jim Stewart

General Manager

I am a sales, marketing and operations specialist, classically trained by a national oil company, an international tire manufacturer and several franchisors. Throughout my career, I have been able to help hundreds of small businesses to succeed, eventually starting up my own small business. I am pleased to be a team member at the Campbellville Animal Hospital, where I hope to make a difference.

I have always been a participant in life, choosing to do things and build my skills rather than spend my time watching others at the peak of their skills. I am a voracious reader, hard core scuba diver, touring motorcycle rider, hiker, geocacher, home renovator and general all round adventurer. I share my home and adventures with my wife and our rescued cats, who’s names seems to change weekly with their escapades! I am a firm believer in the Platinum Rule – do unto others as they would like to be done unto!
