  • Dr.
    Martha Hawksworth

    A 2006 graduate of Iowa State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Martha Hawksworth's quick-thinking and superior medical skills made her the perfect candidate for emergency and conventional veterinary medicine. She went on to practice at a mixed animal practice in Virginia, before returning to complete an internship in emergency medicine in Chicago. After leaving the Windy City, Dr. Hawksworth moved east to become the Medical Director of a small animal hospital in Westfield, Massachusetts. She returned home to Watkins Glen in November 2010 with the goal of opening up her own animal hospital. Her interests in veterinary medicine include internal medicine, emergency medicine, public health, and global veterinary medicine. In her spare time, Dr. Hawksworth enjoys hiking with her two Australian Cattle dogs, spending time with her husband, Paul Bartow, running, and riding her horse.

  • Dr.
    Collin Cary

    On January 5th, 2021 Dr. Collin Cary will join Lakeside Veterinary Services. Dr. Collin Cary is a native of the Southern Tier region of New York State. He has been practicing companion animal medicine in Upstate NY since his graduation from Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. Dr. Collin has a passion for nutrition and preventive care for dogs, cats and exotic pets. He believes these two aspects of animal care help all pets stay where they prefer to be – at home with their families.

    While at Cornell, Dr. Collin had the opportunity to work with the oldest colony of Naked Mole Rats in the United States. As more than one person has told him, “They are so ugly that they are cute”.            Dr. Collin has a genuine compassion for all companion animals, with or without hair. While caring for dogs and cats, he continued to work with Cornell’s exotic pet services to provide local care for reptiles, birds, pocket pets and rabbits. One of his favorites is a 30-pound tortoise! When not providing care for our community of pets, Dr. Collin enjoys spending time in the garden with his wife, toddler and dog. Current homegrown family food favorites include orange beets, purple cabbage soufflé and curried pumpkin.

Thanks to laser therapy and the compassionate care provided by Lakeside Veterinary Services, my beagle-basset, Waylon Jennings, is walking stairs and getting around by himself. Dr. Margaret and Dr. Martha always go above and beyond for our family pets.
