Dr. Penny Bennington

Dr. Penny was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and grew up in Salem, Ohio. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Zoology and her D.V.M. degree from The Ohio State University in 1992. During vet school she managed the veterinary college bookstore. Her first job led her to Austintown, Ohio, where she met Dr. Scott and where they first discovered the compatibility of their practice (and other!) philosophies. She moved to the Cleveland area after a year in Austintown and worked at a pair of clinics in Northfield and Richmond Heights, Ohio. When she and Dr. Scott began looking for a clinic to buy, her longstanding desire to live in Maine helped direct their efforts. Outside of work, Dr. Penny enjoys cooking, working with homemade books and journals, and playing the flute. She has taught classes on rubber stamping, lettering, and art journaling, and has been published in several crafting magazines.

Dr. Scott Bennington

Dr. Scott is a native of Canton, Ohio. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Kenyon College in 1987 and his D.V.M. degree from The Ohio State University in 1991. During vet school, he pursued interests in surgery and cardiology by taking elective classes and participating in extra surgical rotations. After graduation, he worked as an associate veterinarian in Austintown, Ohio for two years and in Burton, Ohio for two-and-a-half years. After leaving Burton, he worked as a relief veterinarian for communities surrounding Cleveland, which allowed him to experience many different approaches to veterinary medicine. While working in this capacity, he began investigating options for practice ownership. His search started in northeast Ohio, led into and all the way across New York, and ultimately ended in Maine. Outside of the office, Dr. Scott enjoys gardening, baking, winter hiking, and sailing. He also enjoys music, and is a member of two local choirs.

Working Together to Provide Your Veterinary Care in Augusta, ME

Scott and Penny married in 1995, and quickly realized that they shared the same desire to own a practice in order to provide a high level of pet health care. A long search led them to Companion Animal Clinic in Augusta, which they purchased in 1998. Pet owners since childhood, the Benningtons view their pets as family members, and strive to treat your pets as well as they would treat their own. They have always shared their home with several cats, and Nora is their third Newfoundland. Do not be surprised if Nora greets you at the clinic!
