Dr. Douglas Andrews

Meet the friendly staff at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital!

Douglas Andrews

Dr. Douglas Andrews values the relationships he has established over the past 40 years, working with clients and their pets, and now seeing children of clients at this phase of his veterinary career. He still enjoys working a varied and often unpredictable day, one that is never the same, not knowing how each day will begin or end. He also loves working with great people and staff, all diligently determined to make everyone's experience at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital a positive one for themselves, the clients and their pets.

Dr. Andrews is half of a set of twins born in Heidelberg, Germany. His family moved to Portland Maine when he was four years old. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Maine at Orono, and his DVM degree from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1979. He returned to Maine and practiced as a mixed animal practitioner at North Deering Veterinary Hospital until February of 1983 then joined Dr. Norman Stiles and Dr. Lesley Birmingham at the previously named Foreside Veterinary Hospital.

Dr. Andrews currently serves as a member of the State Board of Veterinary Medicine.  He was a former treasurer of the Maine Veterinary Medical Association and a Maine delegate for the American Veterinary Medical Association. He has also served as President of the Maine Veterinary Medical Association, The New England Veterinary Medical Association, and the former Downeast Veterinary Medical Association. 

Dr. Andrews and his wife, Elizabeth, have three grown children and two grandchildren.

Since Dr. Andrews partial retirement from Falmouth Veterinary Hospital in 2018, he has joined the Claddagh Mohr Pipe and Drum ensemble and continues to play with the Freeport Wind Ensemble. He can be found practicing his music during the cold winter days or playing hockey at Falmouth or Portland Ice Arena. In the summer,  he maybe boating on Casco Bay hauling his lobster traps, flyfishing the elusive ponds and rivers in northern Maine or searching for striped bass in in the colder ocean waters.  If he really is bored, he and Elizabeth head on on the motorcycle to enjoy the beautiful State of Maine in warmer months. Occasionally, he shows up at Higgen’s Beach for surfing the smaller waves for geriatric surfers.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "My two cats consistently get the BEST care from the vets at Falmouth Veterinary Hospital, starting with the lovely people at check-in to the kind and caring folks upon leaving. The vets and assistants genuinely care about the health and well-being of our two kitties, and as a pet mom, I always feel reassured and happy with their care."

  • "I have been a client there for over 30 years. Care is always excellent. Would not want to ever have to go elsewhere. They are great and so loving when treating my dogs."
    Marcia M.
  • "Dr Graves goes above and beyond with our senior dog. He is caring and thoughtful and respectful. He understands that our dog is a part of our family and treats him as such. The other vets we have met have been just as great and all of the staff are friendly and helpful. We could go to closer practices, but we won’t because this crew is worth the drive."
