Meet Our Veterinarians
Dr. Ernest Godfrey decided to become a veterinarian at the young age of 11. After graduation from high school he attended the University of Florida to study for his pre-veterinary work. He went on to receive his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1968.
Dr. Godfrey settled in Pinellas County and opened Pinellas Animal Hospital in 1973 with the goal of serving companion animals in the Pinellas Park area. In 1990, he opened Seminole Boulevard Animal Hospital in Largo. Through continuing education, both he and his staff keep abreast of new advances in veterinary medicine.
Since graduation, Dr. Godfrey has been very active in both veterinary and community activities. He has served the Florida Veterinary Medical Association in many capacities, beginning in 1987 as Treasurer and as President in 1993 and 2005. He was recognized as FVMA Veterinarian of the Year in 1990 and as Pinellas County Veterinary Medical Society Veterinarian of the Year in 1992. He was also recognized by the FVMA with the Gold Star Award in 1980 and 1988. Dr. Godfrey sits on the board of directors of the Central Florida Academy of Veterinary Medicine and on the FVMA Technicians Committee. He also serves on the board of directors of the Pinellas Animal Foundation which focuses on educating the public about proper pet care.
Dr. Godfrey and his lovely wife, Rossie, have three sons, Will, Walter and Russell. They live together in Seminole with their dog Sally and cats, Casper, Coconut, Danny, Domino, Piper and Duke.
Dr. Clark MacCullough’s interest in animals started as early as he can remember. While growing up in Tampa, he had a variety of pets including dogs, rabbits, lizards, snakes, fish, turtles and a multitude of birds. Prior to veterinary school, he attended the University of Florida (Go Gators!) to receive his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees of Science. He then went on to graduate from the North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. For the first couple years after graduation, he worked at an exotic animal hospital in southeast Florida where he became well versed in basic husbandry as well as critical care medicine for many different species.
In 2006, he moved back to the Tampa Bay area to work with predominantly dogs & cats as well as be close to family. Happy to be living near the beach in Pinellas County, he joined our staff at Seminole Blvd Animal Hospital in 2008. He is a member of the Pinellas County Veterinary Association, American Veterinary Association as well as species specific groups such as the Association of Reptile & Amphibian Veterinarians.
Dr. Clark’s special areas of medical interest include endocrine diseases (ie. diabetes), pain relief for chronic diseases (ie. arthritis), exotic animal medicine & soft tissue surgery.
When he is not working, you can find him playing tennis, watching sports or at home with his family. Rachel and Dr. Clark share their home with their son (Kellen), Jack Russell (Conan), an armchair cat (Percy) and a Blue & Gold Macaw (Faith).
