Dr. Wendell Shepard
Dr. Shepard began the Corinth Veterinary Clinic in 1984. Tremendously dedicated to this area, as well as to animal health, she instilled loyalty to animals and the land in raising her two children.
She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Class of ’83 (BC).
Selling the practice to Dr. Kimberley Chisholm in 2013, she remains an associate veterinarian at the clinic and continues to be a critical
part of optimal health care for your pet in this area.
She is a fanatic about her Chesapeake Bay Retrievers which she breeds and raises for field trial competitions.
Along with her dogs, she is dedicated to personal fitness, cycling, running, and the gym.
Dr. Chisholm was born and raised in Levant, Maine on her family farm. She developed a love for animals at a young age and often accompanied her mother, Dr. Shepard, to work at the Corinth Veterinary Clinic. From the age of five, she knew she was going to be a vet.
She attended college at the University of New Hampshire and graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. She continued on to veterinary school at Colorado State University, graduating in 2012.
Her first year of practice was spent in New Zealand at a mixed animal clinic. After a year abroad, she decided to come home and start practicing with her mother at the Corinth Veterinary Clinic.
In addition to general practice, she is a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist. Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide array of diseases and conditions without the side effects of many medications.
In April 2016, she purchased the practice and continues to work alongside her mother.
Dr. Chisholm enjoys the variability of small animal practice, with an emphasis on preventative medicine. She finds it incredibly rewarding, working with clients as a team with the goals of maintaining animal health and quality of life while promoting the human/animal bond.
Outside the clinic, she enjoys gardening. Her favorite crop is garlic. In the off-chance that her gardens are actually weeded, she can be found walking her dogs or enjoying a yoga class. She became a certified yoga instructor in 2018 and teaches a weekly hot yoga vinyasa flow class.
