Dr. Meaghan Campigotto


Dr. Meaghan Campigotto grew up on a horse farm in the small town of Dutton Ontario. She had many pets growing up and always knew she wanted to have a career working with animals. When Meaghan was 16, she decided she wanted to be a veterinarian and shortly after that she started volunteering at Elgin Animal Hospital.

Meaghan graduated from St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in 2013 and obtained her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture with a major in Animal Science from the University of Guelph in 2017. In 2018, Meaghan was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College where initially her interests were in large animal medicine. During her four years of vet school, Meaghan began to really enjoy small animal medicine and especially coming to work at the clinic in the summer months as a vet assistant.

Meaghan always knew she wanted to come back to her community to practice as a veterinarian and she will be joining our team here at Elgin Animal Hospital starting in June 2022. She has interests in soft tissue surgery, ultrasonography, and preventative medicine. Outside of work, Meaghan enjoys walking her dog Diesel, playing baseball, campfires and spending time with family and friends.


Veterinary Diets vs Store Bought Diets

Exactly why is Vet food so much more money? And why would I spend that when I can get the same food at the grocery store? Am I getting ripped off?! At $60+ a bag, yes, you would think that you might be getting taken to the cleaners on dog or cat food. Let me de-mystify the cost versus quality question. What you might not realize is that there are some very key differences between the food you buy at your veterinarians vs the foods you buy at the grocery or pet stores. We don’t sell theirs, and they CAN’T  sell ours for some key reasons. Veterinary food is formulated to treat a specific condition; think of it as medicine. Typically, a veterinarian would need to prescribe this nutrition for the treatment of a specific disease or condition. Hence the brand “Prescription Diet”. Store-bought brands are for wellness and prevention, NOT treatment - this is a very important distinction!
