The Animal Center was founded by Dr. Richard Whitaker and opened in January 1991, with goals of providing convenient and informative veterinary care for Lewiston, Auburn, Turner, and surrounding areas. We also offered limited animal boarding and pet grooming.
Frustrated with continuing calls asking if we sold pets, we changed our name to Central Maine Veterinary Hospital in 1996. 1997 was a pivotal year at CMVH. We committed to building a functional team with a major staff restructuring. We expanded our boarding kennel, tripling capacity and adding outdoor heated runs.
Over the last 10 years, CMVH has built an exceptional animal care team committed to providing an open experience for families and their pets.
It’s summed up in our mission statement:
"To provide quality care in a nurturing environment that welcomes
