Dr. Jeffrey Carr, DVM

Dr. Jeffrey Carr DVM - North Windham Veterinary Hospital in Windham, MEDr. Carr is the owner of the North Windham Veterinary Hospital since 1989. A graduate of Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine, he has practiced in Maine since graduation. He has dedicated his life to improving the lives of animals and their families and his interests include and go beyond our dog and cat friends. Dr. Carr sees small mammals including rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and hamsters. He performs a full range of medical and surgical procedures including fracture repair, hip and knee surgery, as well as chemotherapy for cancer patients. Dr. Carr maintains the hospital's cutting edge status through extensive pain management protocols for optimal patient treatment and comfort. Diagnostics are performed with new flexible and rigid endoscopy, digital ultrasound, and digital X-ray. Dr. Carr has two sons; Austin and Matt. Austin has a teaching degree from University of Maine at Farmington and works for the Raymond and Windham School districts. Matt now works here at the Hospital after studying Medical Biology at University of New England. Dr. Carr currently shares his life with two cats. Hewey and Luey are both orange male cats that were donated to the hospital. Luey had a severe case of pneumonia.  Dr. Carr knows first-hand what's like to live with a pet whose health is compromised. For many years, Baxter, his black lab, lived with epilepsy, myasthenia gravis, and severe elbow dysplasia.  Currently, his lab, Hank, is his constant companion.  Bob, his rescue horse, has provided him the opportunity to bond with a horse as never before.  His three alpacas, Amigo, Pedro, and Umbie, are also rescues and provide no purpose other than amusement.

Sue Adams

Licensed Veterinary Technician/Office Manager

I have been very fortunate to a part of Dr. Carr’s team for more than 20 years.  I graduated from the vet tech program at the University of Maine at Orono, prior to starting my career in veterinary medicine.  I treat every patient with the same love and care  as I do my own pets.  I also strive to assist the entire team to ensure they provide the best possible care and experience for each patient and their people.  A key element of this is to minimize every patient’s  stress and  fear, knowing they will then have a better response to treatment.  My love for animals has only been magnified by all of my  years of working and caring for them.  I am fortunate to have a little hobby farm with a gang of rescue buddies, two horses, three alpacas, three cats and one Labrador.  All of which serve no purpose other than the most important, which is to provide me with four legged friends to love, feed and care for, which is my life force.

Dr. Catherine Love

Veterinarian

I don't even remember not wanting to be a veterinarian or not adoring animals of all kinds. In fact, my dad had me vaccinated for rabies at 12 years old because I refused to stop bringing home every animal that I found in the Ozark Mountains, injured, orphaned or dead-even they deserved a decent burial. 

My first patients were stuff animals and the family dog, Lady, a black cocker spaniel. My dad, an oncologist, would give me his old doctors bags, lab coats, and stethoscopes. I would put Lady's treats in an empty pill bottle, which would keep her still for hours. I made casts out of brown paper lunch bags and IV drips out of aquarium tubes and Ziploc bags. I operated on most of my stuffed animals giving them emergency kidney transplants using balls of paper towel that I shaped like kidneys.

By 12, I was working as a stable hand caring for two horses, a vet assistant at our local veterinarian clinic and as a wildlife junior rehab volunteer at Lichterman Nature Center. This continued throughout high school. In undergrad, I explored large animal medicine working as an ICU neonatal technician at Rood and Riddle, ambulatory practice life, emergency medicine and even research as part of the team that tested and developed the first intranasal vaccine for strangles.

In veterinary school, I fell in love with surgery working as a surgery technician and performing free spay and neuters on Remote Access Veterinary (RAV) trips across the country. I actually went to vet school to be an equine vet and came out a wildlife vet. A journey that took me, among other places, to Germany for my PhD and postdoctoral Humboldt fellowship where I specialized in elephant and rhinoceroses working with these majestic species in their native habitats.

Regardless of shape, size or species, my passion remains internal medicine, surgery and translational research; that is, research which can be directly applied as a medicine or procedure in practice to improve the life and health of animals.

I am excited that my journey has brought me to Maine and North Windham Veterinary Hospital. I have always felt an internal connection to Maine, a sense of peace and belonging. I can’t wait to explore the beautiful coastline and the Adirondack Mountains with my family. My goal is to use my experiences and background to expand the services available for your pet continuing in the tradition of trusted high-quality, professional and personalized care that is North Windham Veterinary Hospital.

Outside of veterinary medicine, I enjoy competing gymnastics, even at the ripe old age of 44, and spending time with my 30-year old horse, who has been my partner in crime for the last 27 years. Also joining the team are my husband Michael Love, my twins Piper and Pierce, my two cats Olive and Blaze, and of course, my horse Chances.
