Dr. Townsend

Dr. Matt Townsend grew up on a small dairy farm in Waldoboro, ME. It was there, along with his twin brother, that he got the itch to become a veterinarian. He went to the University of Maine for his undergraduate studies and completed his DVM studies at Auburn University in Alabama in 1995. He worked close to home in Rockport, Maine for 2 years before coming to central Maine in 1998, where he got the chance to be a real James Herriot and work in a mixed animal practice. During those years he has been the President of the Maine Veterinary Medical Association and New England Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Townsend shares his home with his wife Diane and their four daughters. They have an alpaca farm to keep them busy and out of trouble. When there is time to spare, Dr. Townsend can be found involved with his daughters’ activities or playing the occasional round of golf.
