Meet the Vets
Combining experience and contemporary technology
Drs. Casey and Adrien Cloutier moved to New Hampshire in 2017, when the opportunity to achieve their lifelong dream of having a family-owned veterinary practice was presented. Both New England natives, they wanted to provide friendly, loving service to animals and their owners in a small-town community closer to their roots.
“We wanted to have a practice that was different from the big clinics — where we knew the pets and owners by name, and the owners could feel comfortable with us both medically and financially,” Dr. Casey says.
When Sandwich Animal Hospital became available, they knew it was the right mix of experience and contemporary technology to make it a successful practice for them. Working with Dr. Julie on both the transition of the practice and her continuing help as a veterinary practitioner has offered the new doctors valuable insight and wisdom.
Almost as soon as Dr. Casey could say the word veterinarian, she wanted to be one.
Growing up on the Connecticut shore, she loved animals and dreamed of being able to keep them healthy. She attended Fordham University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in natural science. After a year of animal research laboratory work, Dr. Casey went on to receive her degree in veterinary medicine from Tufts University in 2014. Her experience includes veterinary practices in North Dakota, most recently working with cattle and livestock at Knife River Veterinary Clinic in Beulah, ND.
Her husband, Dr. Adrien, received his bachelor’s degree in biology from St. Michael’s College in Vermont. He attended Tufts University to earn his doctorate in veterinary medicine in 2014. His experience includes mixed animal medicine and surgery, with an interest in small animal orthopedics. He also practiced at Knife River Veterinary Clinic. He is currently working full-time at Meredith Place Veterinary Emergency Clinic.
The couple enjoys outdoor activities that include working in their vegetable gardens, snowboarding and kayaking. They also love spending time with their two-year-old daughter and their three dogs – Arlo, Atlas and Winona – four cats – Slim, Stitch, Mitts and Jeffy – and their pony, Nacho. Dr. Casey is expecting the couple’s second child in late 2017.
