Hannah Wells DVM, CVAP

As a hospital, we are always searching for additional ways to help our patients. We feel that there are many other treatment options outside the realm of conventional medicine that can benefit animals. We are working to broaden our integrative medicine knowledge by offering acupuncture, herbal therapies, nutritional guidance, and expanding our supplement usage.

Dr. Wells specializes in integrative medicine—incorporating “alternative” therapies along with traditional medicine for the best possible care. She has pursued formal training in acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutritional therapy through Tufts University and the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing integrative medicine since 2001.

Dr. Wells also practices traditional medicine and is an accomplished soft tissue surgeon. Dr. Wells graduated from Cornell University in 1993 and has owned her own successful practice in New Hampshire. We are lucky to have her on board.


Dr. Sara Hodgdon

Dr. Sara Hodgdon earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University in 2007. She spent the next 2 years in equine medicine but eventually made the decision to transition to small animal medicine. She hasn’t looked back since then! Dr. Hodgdon enjoys being a part of your furry family member’s health care team in all aspects, but especially preventive medicine, wound management, allergy management, and soft tissue surgery.

Dr. Hodgdon is a native of NH and completed her Bachelor of Science degree in 2003 at UNH with a major in Animal Science. She lives locally with her husband and a small menagerie of dogs, cats, and farm animals. When outside the office, she can be found spending time with family and friends, reading a good novel, checking her trail camera, or pursuing any number of outdoor activities.
