Annabessacook Veterinary Clinic is a dual veterinary clinic specializing in both equine and small animal medicine and surgery. We are located about 2 miles from downtown Monmouth, a small rural town in central Maine. The clinic was named by Dr. Buggia for Annabessacook Lake, one of the largest of the Winthrop Lakes Region of central Maine. For those theater buffs out there, Monmouth is home to The Theater At Monmouth, housed in historic Cumston Hall,which produces multiple professional Shakespearean and locally-written stage plays every summer.

Come to our clinic when you seek a full general physical exam and vaccinations for your dog, cat, rabbit, or pocket pet, as well as when your family member requires more advanced care. We offer quality internal medicine, including modern digital radiography and ultrasound, as well as endoscopic imaging. We also offer full service surgery and dentistry. Our full in-house laboratory can aid us in timely diagnostics for our ill patients. We can provide you with clinical advice based on sound, up-to-date veterinary information.

Our equine clinic offers everything you need to keep your horse healthy and sound. Annual or semi-annual wellness exams, at the clinic or at your farm, are recommended to diagnose and treat current issues and to prevent future health problems. At the time of your annual or semi-annual wellness exam vaccines, a physical exam, routine dental floats and nutrition consultations can be performed.

Our veterinarians are all skilled and available for your routine and advanced equine dental needs. We provide lameness exams and prepurchase exams. Our new indoor arena will allow us to provide these services year round. We have modern digital radiography and ultrasound available. We can provide a wide range of therapy such as extracorporeal shockwave treatment to assist in the healing of injuries as well as for pain control.

When our family dog Patch was nearing his end here on earth, he was having difficulty. They fit us in that day and they are very compassionate and loving on all parts. It felt like home away from home even though it was a difficult decision.

Words cannot begin to describe how amazing these people are at this Clinic. I came in there this morning with my tiny puppy all the worry in the world, and they bent every Rule and did everything in their power to make sure that he was okay and treated properly. Everyone that works there are quite literally the best people on this Earth.

My horse had 19 quills in his face at 5:30 at night. I called my vet only to find out they weren’t doing large animals anymore, and told me to call ABC. Dr. Z was here in an hour and a half, asked all the right questions, was very kind, and even had me laughing about our “emotional support goat”. I can’t say enough good things, and will be using them in the future! Thank you Dr. Z for saving the day!

ABC has always been a great veterinary clinic, with awesome, and educated people. But yesterday they went above and beyond. We brought our dog in for complications in her pregnancy. This caused high emotions for me her family member/owner. Everything was explained in detail, and all questions answered in a kind and proffesional manner. They were also very sensitive and kind with my girl. It is also wonderful that they care for both small and large animal. Kudos to everyone at ABC you guys are awesome and work together like family

The staff was very friendly and that is the only good thing I have to say about Dr. Fay and staff. They were an hour and a half late, and didn't bother giving us a phone call to let us know. The quote they quoted for castration ended up being an extra $75 for things we were not made aware would be extra. We were told it was routine, so there should have been no extra charges. They charged for sedative, internal antibiotics and saline solution. They said it was routine. I guess saline solution and sedatives are not included in castration. I called several times, so they are refunding a whole $30. Dr. Fay was very rude and the phone would not listen to what I had to say and said, "should I eat this amount myself"!? You didn't tell us your "routine" operation was going to have all these extra charges, so my answer was "yes". My advice to all of you is to go with a vet who gives you a correct quote and sticks to the price.

Customer Testimonials

My wife and I have been very pleased with Annabessacook Vet Clinic, they are professional, friendly, reasonably priced and show empathy beyond we could ever expect.
They are the only vet in the area that is able to spay female mini pigs, or corrective trimming of hooves. This is the only place we will bring our animals in the future. I can't thank them enough for all they have done for our mini pigs and dogs.
If you have any questions feel free to comment or send me a private message.


They always treated us and our family pets with respect and professionalism. The love they show for our family members cannot be bought., We had to have our beloved Taja-Marie put to sleep after 17 years. We will always miss her and alwase be grateful the way Dr. Karen and the staff at Annabessacook handled it. Thank for all you do and the loving way you do it.


I'm rather new to this clinic. I was welcomed when I wanted a second opinion for a black spot on my Yorkie's tail. The other vet I saw previously to Dr. Perkins of Annabessacook Vet Clinic, thought we should cut off the tail and send out for histology. This was going to cost upwards of $1,000 which I just didn't have. Dr. Perkins did a very complete exam of the area and decided it was an allergy to fleas, and the black spot actually fell off during the exam. Other factors led her to believe this result as well. I didn't need to put my Yorkie through surgery and the cost of the exam was well worth the 2nd opinion! Now I'm taking both of my Yorkie's to Annabessacook Veterinary Clinic!


My first experience to the clinic for large animals was yesterday, though it ended sadly for us... I wanted to say thank you to Dr. Z for her quick actions, experience, and judgment. Everyone was very caring helpful and welcoming. A special thank you to the Dr. Who made a house call for Waylon today on a sick day for herself, you told me your name however with everything going I don’t remember. Thank you! Thank you everyone. Both my goats didn’t make it through,my heart is heavy today. You both made it a little easier for me. I would recommend you to anyone I know. There’s a good chance you’ll see me again soon. I’m missing them little buggers!!
