A Brief History of Yarmouth Veterinary Center in Yarmouth, Maine
Louise LeBoeuf and Peter Smith started Yarmouth Veterinary Center in 1986. For the first six months the practice was housecalls-only, while they lived in the 1826 house on the corner of Bridge and Willow Streets in Yarmouth and converted the attached dirt-floor shed into a cozy three-and-a-half room hospital. The x-ray machine was in their living room.
A year later Louise and Peter moved out to allow their practice to take over the whole house. A couple of years after that they renovated a little old cape on the other side of Willow Street, turning it into a grooming salon and boarding kennel.
In the summer of 2000 they completed construction of the present-day Yarmouth Veterinary Center, on the site of their former Willow Street boarding/grooming facility, across from the beloved antique house that served them so well for so many years. YVC is now housed in a facility designed, constructed and equipped to allow them, and their wonderful associate veterinarians and staff, to provide the best veterinary care possible for their client's pets.
The x-ray machine is no longer in their living room, but their practice is still home to them, and their clients and patients are the most welcome of guests.
A very important update:
In 2017 Louise and Peter's son Zach graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School. After completing a 1-year internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, New Jersey he joined his parents as a veterinarian at YVC in August 2018.
