Emergency Care

Having an emergency? 

When we are open

If your pet is experiencing a life threatening emergency during our regular hours, we may be able to stabilize your pet, evaluate treatment options quickly, and help determine if you need to go to an emergency hospital.  If needed, we can attempt to resuscitate, provide oxygen, stop bleeding and let you know what you can expect for a prognosis before you decide to transport your pet.   

Please call ahead if possible; the number is 207-985-4277.  We do not take walk-ins for non-emergencies. 

After Hours

Our area has four after hours emergency options.  Below are phone numbers and links to the directions on their websites. Calling ahead helps them prepare for treating your pet as soon as you arrive.
