Laura Leighton grew up in central Maine. Her early interest in animals, particularly large primates, lead her to pursue a career as a veterinarian. After completing veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania in 2007 she returned home to raise a family and practice in the Bangor area. Laura’s veterinary experience is primarily small animal with interests in the human animal bond and turtle and backyard poultry medicine. In addition to practicing western medicine, Laura holds a certification in veterinary acupuncture and is pursuing osteopathic medicine for companion animals.
She lives with her husband, 3 young children, Jessie (a rescue dog), Tonks and Felix (2 kitties), and 3 Black Australorp hens. Kindred Spirits Veterinary Clinic has always held a special place in her heart and she is excited to be a part of the team.
