westbrook veterinariansMichael Kaltsas, DVM

Dr. Kaltsas is the senior staff veterinarian at Stoneledge Animal Hospital in Westbrook and, since 2006, the co-owner of the practice with his wife Nicole. Dr. Kaltsas's veterinary career, in a sense, began when he was just 15 years old and living in Milford, NH. "Our family dog had puppies and one came out of the amniotic sac not breathing. I used a bulbous syringe, removed the fluid and puffed air into its lungs and the puppy revived," Dr. Kaltsas remembered. "After that experience, I knew what I wanted to do."

Dr. Kaltsas received his bachelor's degree in animal and dairy science from Auburn University in 1994. He was the recipient of the J.P. Cunningham Scholarship, which paid for one year of undergraduate studies, and he was also a member of the Gamma Sigma Delta National Honor Society. He earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998 where he was a member of the Phi-Zeta National Honor Society for Veterinarians. He was a co-founder of Omega Tau Sigma, a professional fraternity.

The sheer variety of cases that Dr. Kaltsas sees every day continues to motivate him. "The pets and the interesting people you meet are inspiring," Dr. Kaltsas said. "If you love what you do you never work a day in your life." He was nominated as one of the top 1000 veterinarians in the country in 2008.

Dr. Kaltsas and Nicole have three children and share their home with two rescue dogs, Deja and Katie. He spends his spare time with his family, kayaking, camping, visiting historic sites and fishing.

vet in westbrookMagda Rosol, DVM

Dr. Magda Rosol was born in Prague in the Czech Republic but her family fled the region and settled in Massachusetts when she was just five years old. She has been on the veterinary staff of Stoneledge Animal Hospital since 2011.

"I've always wanted to help sick animals but I was inspired to pursue my dream of becoming a veterinarian by a family friend," Dr. Rosol said. Dr. Rosol was also exposed to a wide variety of animals while she was growing up, including dogs, cats, horses, cows, sheep, goats, llamas and more. "Being raised in the country, I was surrounded by animals," she said. Dr. Rosol took that interest and began working at a local veterinary practice as a kennel assistant walking dogs and cleaning cages. She then became a veterinary technician at a mixed animal practice "where I learned many important skills," she said.

Dr. Rosol received her undergraduate degree in animal science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she received multiple scholarships, grants and honors. She was also a member of several clubs and organizations. Dr. Rosol earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010, and received the Gentle Doctor Leadership Award and a Winner's Circle Scholarship.

"I am grateful that there are many memorable events in my career, but the most memorable are emergency surgery patients whose life threatening condition were treated successfully," she said. "Both owner and pet are grateful for the help."

Dr. Rosol has two rescue dogs at home, Dozer and Mumbles, and she relaxes by horseback riding and showing horses, exercising and spending time with her pets.
