Medomak Veterinary Services in Waldoboro is pleased to announce new ownership under Dr. Art Charles and Dr. Bailey Gage. The husband and wife team purchased the practice from Dr. Laurie Howarth on Dec. 28. Howarth will continue to practice at the facility on a part-time basis.
“I was anticipating having feelings of sadness and loss when the time came for me to sell my practice,” said Howarth of the transition. “This turned out to not be how I felt. I am happy and relieved to see the practice that I worked so hard to develop and grow pass into the capable and caring hands of Drs. Charles and Gage. I look forward to continuing my work at Medomak Veterinary Services and being able to watch it thrive under the direction of the new owners.”
Charles is originally from Belgrade, Maine and is joined by his wife, Gage, originally from Kansas City, Kan. Both graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 and were practicing in Aroostook County for the past several years. “We feel very fortunate to be working in such a great community at such a wonderful facility,” said Charles. “MVS has had a reputation for excellence and compassion for over 30 years and we are looking forward to continuing and expanding that tradition going forward.”
Medomak Veterinary Services is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon. Members of the public should feel free to stop in and meet Charles and Gage any time. New clients are welcome, and an open house will be planned for the spring.
