Dr. Charles Gauger opened the Norway Veterinary Hospital in 1964 as a full-service hospital, caring for farm animals, horses, and pets. His goal was to provide a high standard of veterinary care and personalized service to the community of Southwestern Maine. As the practice thrived, it outgrew the original Crescent Street facility. Ground was broken for a more contemporary facility at our current location on Main Street in the early 1970s.
Over the years, as science and medicine rapidly progressed, Dr. Gauger decided to focus solely on small animal medicine. Dr. Todd Gauger joined the practice in 1988 and purchased the practice in 2003. For more information on Dr. Todd Gauger, please see the ‘Meet the Doctors’ page.
