Dr. Alicia Ring

Dr. Alicia Ring grew up in downeast Maine and knew she wanted to become a veterinarian since she could remember. She graduated with a BS in Animal Science from the University of Maine at Orono in 2000 and then travelled to the midwest to study veterinary medicine at Iowa State University where she earned her degree in 2004. Her travels weren’t over, though, as she and her husband moved to Portland, Oregon to begin their careers. She practiced in small animal veterinary medicine as well as at a no-kill cat shelter called Cat Adoption Team, where she rescued her infamous cat Sparky who had been electrocuted on a utility pole. Finally, in 2007 her family had the opportunity to move back to their home state and they jumped at the chance. Since that time, Dr. Ring has practiced as an associate and a relief veterinarian all over southern Maine. Her special interests include internal medicine, dentistry and exotic animal medicine. She lives in Saco with her husband and four children, Lucas, Anna, Alex and Elizabeth as well as four friendly felines. She enjoys reading (in those rare snippets of free time), baking with her children, and spending time at the lake with her family.
