Lakeside Veterinary Clinic

88 Libby Hill Road
Oakland, ME 04963


Dr. Eleanor Sabean been practicing in Maine since 1993.  A native of Nova Scotia, she graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island with her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM).  Veterinary medicine, her first love, is a second career for her; after working as a Systems Analyst and university professor (she also earned a Bachelor of Commerce and an MBA before going to vet school) she decided to pursue the only "business" she would truly enjoy.  Designing, building, opening and growing Lakeside Vets since 2004 has been a realization of  this dream.  

Dr. Sabean finds working with pets and their people always interesting and continues to love learning about new and better ways to care for her patients. Surgery is an area of particular interest for her, and she has been working to improve her skills in ultrasound as well.   Recently she has begun a Medical Veterinary Acupuncture course and hopes to be certified by fall 2016. 

Her background in teaching also helps her communicate with owners about their pets, which she feels is the cornerstone of effective care.  Helping owners understand what a pet is going through, what it needs, and how it can be helped is very important to her.  Dr. Sabean loves living in Oakland with her small zoo of three human children, two cats, two dogs, a special bunny and three horses.
