Camille Curtis, DVM
Dr. Curtis was born, raised and currently lives in the small agricultural communities of the Gila Valley in Southeastern Arizona. Her father was a small-town family medicine practitioner who spent time as a young boy farming cotton with horses and mules, and passed his love and knowledge of animals to his daughter. That background (along with a field trip in 2nd grade to the local vet clinic) coupled with a love of school, determined the career choice of Dr. Curtis: that of a veterinarian.
Dr. Curtis graduated from Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine with her D.V.M. degree, then completed a large animal medicine internship for the University of Sydney in Australia, which was followed by additional training in pathology at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in New York State. After marrying her Air Force husband, Dr. Curtis moved around and practiced veterinary medicine in several different capacities in different clinics and different states until her husband retired from the military and they moved back home to the Gila Valley.
Dr. Curtis lives with her husband and 5 children on a small farm. They raise sheep, cattle, chicks, pigs and a small herd of rescue horses. She enjoys gardening, canning, cooking, and baking, and her kids participate in raising and showing livestock for 4-H.
Dr. Curtis has a passion for shelter and rescue pets, spay and neuter surgery, dentistry, general surgery, and for helping the animal community in general. She worked at Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital as a relief veterinarian in 2011-2012, and is happy to be back.
