Keeping Pets Healthy Together

If you live in Topsham or the surrounding area, we want to build a relationship with you and the dogs and cats of the community based on care and collaboration.  We see patients by appointment only. We look forward to meeting your pets!


Our Mission


To empower pet owners with the knowledge it takes to raise a healthy, well balanced animal.

To address problems acutely and astutely to prevent complications that come with chronic diseases.

To prevent disease by providing comprehensive wellness exams to the four legged members of the family.

To be involved in the community so that we may establish a sense of extended family for animals and their owners.

Owner Amy Ruksznis, DVM wants to work together with pet owners to keep their pets as healthy as possible.  

Beyond first rate pet care, we hope you'll notice our wellness center is comfortable, kid-friendly, and a very calm environment.  A visit to the veterinarian should always be a positive experience for you and your pets.  Here in Topsham, we hope you'll find us patient, kind and resourceful when it comes to making your pet comfortable and on the road to better health.

Browse around our site and look at our articles and pet videos. The best veterinary care for animals is proper nutrition and problem prevention. If you want to ask a question call (207) 406-4468 or email us!

Our Staff Code of Conduct


Check Mark Icon Offer patience, empathy and solutions for our client's concerns about their pets. 

Check Mark Icon If a solution is not possible at our office, offer alternatives.

Check Mark Icon Keep the lines of communication open, informative and in good tone.

Check Mark Icon Follow protocols to keep service fair and equal.

Check Mark Icon Do our best to stay on time and when this is not possible, keep the client informed about the situation as they wait.

Check Mark Icon If one staff member cannot effectively discuss something with a client, offer a second staff member to discuss things (which may be done at a later time if needed).

Check Mark Icon Finish the conversation with a smile.





Our Client Code of Conduct


Check Mark Icon  Utilize patience and understanding in an understaffed, busy world.

Check Mark Icon Understand that every schedule has limits: we are an appointment-based practice – not an ER.

Check Mark Icon Keep your tone and vocabulary in check at all times.

Check Mark Icon Plan ahead for refills of your medication. It is very difficult to get meds ready for your immediate pick-up.

Check Mark Icon Do not hang up on staff while they are speaking to you.

Check Mark Icon Have reasonable expectations when scheduling an appointment (oftentimes urgent, same-day appointments fill up within 15 minutes of opening. Become familiar with the PetMedic for urgent care options).

Check Mark Icon Be respectful that our technology (text messaging, email, automated phone tree) allows us to efficiently communicate with you - we do not have enough man-power to do things personally all of the time.

Check Mark Icon Be on time for your appointment and do not use this against us when we are running late.

Check Mark Icon Please respect the No Smoking rules on our property.

Check Mark Icon Do not schedule other things around your commitment to your pet’s appointment that you may become late for.

Check Mark Icon Keep your pets leashed or kenneled until they are safely inside a closed exam room (our parking area is next to an active public road).

Check Mark Icon Understand our policies – noted on our website, in our client letter, email communications and within contracts that you may sign. Do not argue over things that are outlined in our policies – this is unfair to the staff. 

Importantly: If you miss your first appointment with us to establish care, you will not be invited to make a second one.

There is a zero-tolerance policy for those who cannot adhere to the codes above.  Thank you for understanding, and we hope to provide you with countless reasons to build a lasting relationship with us!
