Boothbay Animal Hospital has been an integral part of the Boothbay Region community since 1975 when it was founded by Dr. James Wahlstrom. The hospital began as a quiet, one doctor practice in Boothbay, and then expanded to the Wiscasset area in 1989 when Dr. Wahlstrom opened a satellite office, Coastal Veterinary Care. Now owned by Dr. Dean Domeyer and Dr. Kristen Mugnai, the two offices now employ six well qualified veterinarians and an experienced staff who know the people and patients of the area well. This growth stems from the commitment of the quality care from routine annual exams to dental and surgical procedures. The staff at Boothbay Animal Hospital

takes pride in the wellbeing of their patients and educating their owners on how to properly care for them. Boothbay Animal Hospital has a unique walk in system for routine visits which allows more flexibility for their clients’, and also provides dental and surgical appointments four days a week. Both offices have state of the art equipment to provide a thorough assessment of your pets’ health including digital radiology, ultrasonography, endoscopy, blood chemistry, hematology, and electrocardiography as well as culture analysis. The staff at Boothby Animal Hospital is committed to making your pets lives happy and healthy.

Mutt Nose Best started almost 5 years ago in a Cuisinart in our kitchen. I couldn't find a product on the market that I could pronounce all of the ingredients of much less feel good about using on my furbaby. At the time I was working on people skin and I was simply using my knowledge of herbal remedies and skin care to create a natural concoction of nourishing oils and butters to protect and heal our Australian Shepherd Bandit's dry, cracked, and sun burned nose. Healthy, sustainably resourced ingredients are not just imperative in the foods pets take in but also in the grooming products we use on them topically. Everything on your pets skin is absorbed into their bloodstream in a matter of seconds. I wanted to develop products for topical use that held to these same high standards. The quality of our handcrafted products, our commitment to give small retailers a unique product line to offer their customer and our mission to DOGood have all helped propel us into an industry that we love! Five years later my life has GONE

TO THE DOGS, literally! Mutt Nose Best now occupies two buildings on an old missile base turned industrial park in Bangor, Maine. A "normal" day consists of all of our dogs at work; we have a doggie playroom that rivals most human day cares. I don't think I could ever go back to a workplace that didn't include surprise sloppy kisses and a sanctioned game of fetch. The immeasurable joy that having dogs in the workplace provides is irreplaceable. Pictured: Owner Jenny and Bandit
