Dr. Shannon Bennett is originally from Clemson, South Carolina, and decided to be a veterinarian at age 9.  She studied Biology and Spanish at the University of South Carolina and graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006.

In 2007, she moved to central Maine.  Enjoying the variety of both soft-tissue surgery and internal medicine, her focus is integrating allopathic Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Medicine to prevent and treat disease.  Her practice approach is to partner with the patient’s family to tailor treatments uniquely suited to their circumstances, with the option to include herbal medicine, nutrition and acupuncture in the treatment plan.

Dr. Bennett, a Wayne resident, spends her out-of-office time with her husband, Chris, and their two young sons, Carter and Jackson.  Their family includes two entitled, loving cats named Kingsford and Butternut, a rowdy rescue pug named Louise, and Elvis, the extroverted fish.  Depending on the season, her spare time is spent gardening, boating, running, skiing and traveling.
