Veterinarian and Owner

Dr. Cote graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. She completed a small animal internship at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and moved to Maine in 2009. Dr. Cote has spent the last decade working to improve the lives of the animal in her care. In 2013, she became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist followed by certification in Tui-na in 2015. Throughout her time in veterinary medicine, Dr. Cote has strived to learn more about every aspect of veterinary care, but behavioral management has become a passion. Dr. Cote is currently certified as an Elite Fear Free Certified Professional and is working toward certification in Low-Stress Handling as well.

Dr. Cote is grateful to be a member of the Brunswick community where she resides with her two children, 2 dogs, 6 cats and tortoise. In addition to owning Blackbird Animal Health, Dr. Cote is also the Medical Director of Midcoast Humane in Brunswick - a post she is honored to hold. When not at Midcoast Humane or working with her other patients, Dr. Cote can be found on the trails with one of the dogs or children or curled up with a good book.
