Miss Ruby Slippers the Corgi was one of our first patients last spring and now nearly a year later she has volunteered to introduce our newest, 7th staff member, Bailey! Bailey has been with us for a month or so now and brings ten years of experience in veterinary medicine. She is originally from Tallahassee, Florida but attended Colby College (she majored in Classics and Classical Civilization!), and has lived Alaska, Oregon, and Colorado. She loves hiking, trout fishing, knitting, and is active in the Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust in Damariscotta. Bailey was a lucky find for us, and we can tell Miss Ruby Slippers approves as well!

Catching up with Roxy! Roxy is a 10 year old malti-poo and she and her sister Beanie had their dentals with us this past January. Unfortunately Roxy's mouth was extremely painful and she needed all her remaining teeth to be extracted. She is feeling so much happier and healthier now, and has gained some weight, too! She was like a new dog when she visited today, except she did not lose her desire to bite us. She's pretty harmless these days, but we still like to call her our little Piranha. She has been known to try to bite on occasion at home, too, earning her the nickname "Grumpy Cat" on the homefront, lol! Be good, Grumpy Cat!

Happy National Veterinary Receptionist Week to our Katie!!!

Katie is amazing - she plans and guides us through our days with such grace and competence. And she is the calm voice over the phone to many a panicked pet owner. Her 13 years of experience in veterinary reception are a godsend to us. Thank you for everything you do for us, Katie Thomas - we would be lost without you!

(As pictured, Petey Noble invites himself for a cuddle with Auntie Katie whenever he feels like it, regardless of how busy she is...)

How cute is Cookie? She is a 6 month old female hamster and had a very minor procedure today and we are wishing her well tonight. Cookie's likes are broccoli and spinach, and her dislikes are the other hamster in her home so she gets to live on an entirely different floor of the house. She has an exercise wheel but prefers to sleep under it rather than exercise on it. Cookie is definitely her own woman and was quick to let Melanie and Dr. Noble know what parts of today's examination she objected to. She has plenty of spunk and we think her feisty nature is going to carry her through this week. Get well soon, Cookie!

This is Mariah and she is looking for a new home. She is about to turn 6 years old in a few weeks and has always had a steady, loving family life. But Mariah's mom is losing her battle with cancer and as Mariah's veterinarian we have been asked to help her find a safe harbor for the next chapter in her life.

Mariah would do best in a quiet home with one person or a couple to look after her. She likes to be showered with attention when she wants it, but spends time on her own sometimes as well. She does not seem to mind independent dogs, but we're not sure if she would want to share a home with other cats. We think would be happiest in a home without children, because their attention can be a little much for her. She is currently indoor/outdoor.

Mariah is fully up to date on all her veterinary care, and is ready for a new home as soon as we can find her the right fit. Her mom is hoping to know Mariah is settled in the right place rather than continue to worry for her.

Mariah and her mom have a special place in our hearts. If you think you might have a place in your heart and home for Mariah please email us at [email protected]. (Please note that email rather than Facebook messaging is the best way to reach us). We're going to figure this out, Mariah and Mom. xoxo

Archie made it to Alaska! If you follow our page you may remember 2 year old French Bulldog Archie. Archie's dad Scott drives a long distance truck route regularly from Maine, out to the West Coast, and up through Canada to Alaska. And wherever Dad and his truck goes, Archie goes! Today Archie reported in from Alaska and sent some pics of the Yukon as well. Thanks for remembering us back here in Wiscasset, Archie. Have fun and come home soon, bud!

Dear Wiscasset Pets,

Spring is upon us, and this may be a good time to revisit some basic tenants of healthy living:

1. Leave that tomcat passing by alone. You two are an abscess waiting to happen.
2. No, do not "just sniff" that porcupine. He has a tail you can't even imagine.
3. Whatever tasty morsel you think you have found in the woods now that the has snow melted is going to keep you and your owner up all night. So no. Just no.
4. No crossing the road. Not now, not ever. Because we said so.

We love you guys, but you all are running us ragged this month. Make good choices!

Love,
Wiscasset Vet

Military pup Abby the Golden puppy had a successful flight and PCS (Permanent Change of Station) and is making herself at home at US Naval Station Rota, Spain! Look at this kid playing tug of war with her human sisters with the Bay of Cadiz in the background, and then relaxing in Mom and Dad's bed after the long flight was over. Thanks to Abby's family for thinking to update us after their PCS. Enjoy Spain and come back to Maine someday when Dad retires from the Navy, Abby!

Brother and sister duo Snoopy and Star volunteered to help us announce Opening Day 2021! But then Snoopy got a little upset when Melanie told him they would have to wait one more day to see the Sox take Fenway because of a rain delay. Star took it all in stride, having heard the Detroit-Cleveland game took place in a snowstorm and wanting none of that. These two are from a loyal Sox family and their dad has a pretty cool job - he drives a big tractor trailer that brings Maine's Poland Spring water to other states that wish they had water like ours! Stay safe on the road, Dad, and Go Sox!

"Was I wrong to corner that beaver?"

This is 9 year old Otter, and she was the center of our first "Otter" vs. Beaver emergency. Otter surprised a beaver on her morning outing... and feeling trapped, the beaver latched on to her chest and fought. Otter needed minor surgery for the bite wound on her chest and had some painful wounds on her belly where the beaver's back legs scratched her multiple times in the scuffle. Otter is back home safe now with some pain meds making her feel much better, and she also gets to wear her dad's cool t-shirt to protect her wounds. We are all hoping Beaver is okay, too, wherever he is.

Beavers are low risk for rabies, but Otter was up to date and got a booster when she got stitched up, just in case! Hopefully this is our one and only "Otter vs. Beaver" post!

What could 2.3 lb Max the piggie and 67 lb Murphy the boxer have in common?

They both recently joined our practice, they were both absolutely adorable (and were also perfect gentlemen!), and they both had the itchies!

It's getting to be that time of the year again... Pollens, molds, mites, insects, yeast, bacteria, and food sensitivities can all conspire to make four legged family members uncomfortable. But it doesn't matter if you are as tiny as Max the Piggie, or as big a boy as Murphy the boxer. We're always here to help. Feel better little Max and big boy Murphy. Hopefully you are already feeling some relief tonight!

So this happened this week... His name is Louie. He is a "Chug" (Chihuahua + Pug). He weighed in at 2.4 lbs (about the size of our last guinea pig...). But his mom says that what he lacks for in size, he makes up for in opinion! He may not know how adorable he is, but let us have it, Louie, we're ready!

From Moscow to Maine! This is Kobe and he lived on the streets in Russia before a rescue organization coordinated his transport to the United States. His health certificate originated from Sharikopodshipnikovskaya Street in Moscow, he entered the US in New York, NY, and he found two loving parents in Wiscasset, Maine. He has some scars and is nervous around new people, but he is bonding well with his new mom and dad. Our exam this week was one of the final steps of finalizing his adoption. It was a privilege to be a part of helping this pup find a family after 5,000 miles of searching for the right, patient parents. Welcome to Wiscasset, Kobe.

Today we met Timber! He is 10 weeks old and his new daddy played a big role in renovating this building last winter for our veterinary hospital. Dad is a general contractor and does amazing work with carpentry, so it's only fitting that this new pup be named Timber. Timber has a 9 month old human sister that he is absolutely adorable with, and has 6 year old and 11 year old humans to watch over now as well as he grows. Plus, he has cat siblings for the first time! He is the only dog in this lively home...
You are going to be a busy boy, Timber!

Meet Tangerine! He's 5 months old and is not only our new patient, but also our new neighbor! This lucky feline gets to grow up on the property of The Morris Farm across the street from us. He's going to be glued to the window when the sheep, lambs, and cattle arrive back on their summer pastures in just a few short months!

Right in line with the Grammys Awards this week, we had two of music's greatest right here with us... Meet Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley! Both felines were just as easy going as their namesakes, but other than an occasional meow neither were in the mood to sing for us...

Check out this crew! Lucy (first pup on the left) and brother Charlie (third pup from the right) recently had their first puppy visits. Their dad was a German Shepherd, and their mom was an Australian Shepherd, and all four of the girl pups were born looking like their German Shepherd dad, while all four of the boy pups were born looking like their Aussie mother! The pups are 11 weeks old now and have split up for new homes, but we're so happy Lucy and Charlie will be growing up together... and with us! We just can't get enough of these Maine pups in their truck!

Nutmeg and Cinnamon! They are 8 weeks old, newly adopted, and they are sisters. They were a little reluctant to interrupt playtime for individual physical exams, but they sure were a lot of fun today. They have a new home in Waldoboro, two loving parents that adore them already, and it won't surprise you to hear that their mom loves to bake!
