The History of Fair Winds Senior Pet Care in Galveston

The founding partners of Fair Winds, Christie Cornelius and Camille Perkins moved to Galveston Island in early 2022 after Dr. Cornelius decided to press pause on her career as a veterinarian to pursue an MBA degree at Rice University.

Not long after being here in Galveston, they realized the strong sense of community and local favor present throughout the island. It motivated them to want to offer pet lovers something they’ve not experienced before. Fair Winds is your local veterinary team dedicated to providing excellent care to pets in pain and suffering whose owners are at a crossroads regarding decision-making.

Our Mission

Fair Winds, as an organization, values compassion, empathy, collaboration, integrity, trust, inclusion, innovation, altruism, and vulnerability. The vision of Fair Winds Senior Pet Care is for all aging pets to experience physical, emotional, and mental comfort as they approach the end of their natural lives; and for all families caring for elderly pets to feel fully supported by compassionate professionals trained in veterinary hospice and palliative care.

Fair Winds Senior Pet Care aims to improve care outcomes for seniors and geriatric pets diagnosed with painful, debilitating, chronic, or life-limiting illnesses. Fair Winds will work to accomplish this by providing educational resources to help caregivers recognize the presence of earlier emotional and physical pain in their companions to minimize and prevent suffering more effectively and efficiently. Fair Winds will offer comprehensive pain screening and advanced non-surgical treatment options (both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical) for pets with chronic and acute-on-chronic pain as a symptom of either advanced age or a disease process. Our care at Fair Winds continues until the family has made a decision to humanely euthanize their pet due to declining health or until the pet passes away at home with or without intervention.
