Dr. David Cloutier has been a veterinarian at Veazie Veterinary Clinic since 1992 and he became an owner in 1994. He graduated from the University of Maine undergraduate program and Tufts Veterinary School. He passionately believes in providing the best possible experience for both clients and their pets.
Dr. Cloutier’s passion for excellence, compassion for animals, and empathy for their owners are well known amongst pet owners. His vision and leadership have created a staff culture of kindness and service that can be felt when you walk through the door.
His professional interests include surgery, particularly orthopedic and thoracic, cardiology, and rehabilitation. He is often called the “dog whisperer” because of his ability to work with fearful and aggressive dogs. Dr. Cloutier believes that before treatment can begin he must first understand owners’ concerns, perform a thorough evaluation, and make an accurate diagnosis.
He is a graduate of the University of Maine pre-veterinary program and Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine where he received two prestigious awards for his clinical skills. He is a lifelong learner, frequently attending continuing education seminars, and an avid reader on the subjects of leadership and compassion.
Dr. Cloutier has appeared on over five hundred episodes of Pet Connection on Channel 7 and can now be heard on WVOM-FM radio bringing information to pet owners. He believes in giving back to the community; he serves on the Bangor Humane Society’s board and participated with other area vets to help create the emergency clinic and currently serves on the board. He lives in Orono with his wife, Janet, a Labrador Retriever, Tuukka, and a Maine Coon Cat, Zdano (lovingly called Meow).
