Topsham Veterinary Wellness Center - Our Doctors

 

Amy Ruksznis, DVM:

Dr. Ruksznis (pronounced "Ruck-shin-knees") grew up in Kittery, ME knowing from a young age that some day she'd be a veterinarian.  She attended the University of Maine - Orono for a degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences and minored in Equine Studies.  She worked as a veterinary assistant for one year before being accepted to the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island, Canada.  It was there that she was able to fulfill her childhood dream.  She worked for 6 years in Portland, ME at North Deering Veterinary Hospital.  There she was responsible for the majority of the surgery and dental procedures, and also enjoyed creating lasting relationships with clients and their pets that were seen for both wellness and sick visits.  It has always been important to Dr. Ruksznis to teach pet owners what it takes to keep their pets healthy when possible.  In the event that the pet is on the other side of things, and comes to see her when they are sick, she does everything she can to solve the problem and provide comfort to both the pet and the owner. When not practicing medicine, Dr. Ruksznis enjoys the outdoors as much as possible. She shares her home in Bowdoinham with her wife Denise, her trusty dogs Olive and Bernie, two cats, a bird, a turtle, some lovely chickens.

 

Dr. Holly Noble, DVM:

Dr. Noble was raised in Connecticut but fell in love with Midcoast Maine while earning her B.A. in Biology from Bowdoin College and competing on the Bowdoin Sailing Team on Quahog Bay. After Bowdoin, Dr. Noble went on to receive an M.A. in Science Education from St. Joseph College in Connecticut and then her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts. Dr. Noble became a commissioned officer in the Army in 2014 and has served on Active Duty as an Army Veterinarian as a Captain in the Army Veterinary Corps for the past several years. Most recently Dr. Noble was the Officer in Charge of veterinary care at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina. She provided round the clock care to all of the Air Station’s Military Working Dogs, and served as veterinarian to the family pets of the Air Station community. Dr. Noble is proud to have served our country and is now thrilled to return to Midcoast Maine and join the Topsham Veterinary Wellness Center. While she enjoys all areas of general practice, her professional interests include internal medicine, soft-tissue surgery, and dentistry, and she is both a member of the MVMA and AVMA. Dr. Noble resides on Bailey Island and when not at work she can most likely be found aboard her kayak in Casco Bay, hiking in the mountains with her dog Mae, out in her garden, or reading by the fire with her cat Petey.
