Thomas A. Judd, D.V.M. graduated from Michigan State University in 1983. He moved to Maine and worked with Dr. Paul Clukey in Lewiston at a large animal veterinary practice. In 1984 he became co-owner of North Deering Veterinary Hospital, at that time a large mixed animal practice in Portland. After selling North Deering Veterinary Hospital in 1991, Dr. Judd established Equine Veterinary Service, an independent equine preventive medicine practice now located in Freeport.
As a member of the International Association of Equine Dentistry, Dr. Judd offers
progressive equine dentistry to horses
participating in a variety of disciplines.
In addition to his equine practice, Dr. Judd also performs Veterinary Acupuncture on a regular basis. Since 1990 he has treated horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, cattle, goats and pigs with this centuries-old discipline. He finds that acupuncture is most effective in treating musculoskelatal disorders, inflammatory disease and behavioral problems.
Although the veterinary practice is a full-time job, Dr. Judd occasionally finds the time to play drums with the band “Misspent Youth”, teach classes in self defense and safe firearms handling for Weaponcraft, and hike and enjoy the outdoors as often as possible . You will also periodically see him at Freeport Tack Company, the tack shop that he co-owns with Lisa O'Loughlin.
Tom lives with rescue dogs Louis and Sophie (German Shepherds) and two horses, Prospector (Thoroughbred) and Spot (Paint/Arab Cross).
