Pine Tree Veterinary Hospital - Our Doctors


Dr. Peter Davis ~ Owner

Dr. Davis joined Pine Tree Veterinary Hospital in 1982 as a veterinarian, but actually started working here stuffing envelopes and as a kennel attendant while in elementary school. He considered it an honor to go on farm calls and help his father, Dr. Langdon Davis, to treat the dog and cat patients.

Dr. Davis graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. degree in Animal Science in 1978 and with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 1982. He is past president of the Maine Veterinary Medical Association and also represented the veterinarians of Maine in the American Veterinary Medical Association house of delegates for nine years. 

He and his wife, Debbie Doten, live in Readfield on their certified tree farm.  Debbie likes growing organic vegetables and Peter likes making walking trails and fat tire bike trails in the woods. They have four dogs that enjoy the woods immensely.  He also spends a lot of time training his two versatile bird dogs.


Dr. Hodgkins has been providing veterinary care in Augusta for 5 years.
