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 dog Olive, two cats, a bird, a turtle, some lovely chickens and ducks.
