Summer People, Snowbirds & Travelers

The Kennebunks and surrounding areas are very mobile communities.  We're ready to meet the special needs that come with traveling, whether for a week or six months. 

Visiting Maine and your pet needs a vet?  One time visitors and summer residents are welcome.  We'll do all we can to care for your pets while you're here.  963079_72371877.jpg

Are you and your pet tired of the cold and going south for the winter?  How can you get your pet's medication while you're away? Once you set up your medicine cabinet, you can purchase the medications you need, as you need them.  And have them delivered directly to you.  Who hasn't forgotten to take their medication while on vacation?  Now your pet won't, because you can set up email reminders before you go. 

Are you taking your pet somewhere that requires proof of vaccinations?  Once you set it up, you'll have ready access to them.  Need a letter for your airline confirming your pet can travel?  Request one easily. 

Need someone to care for your cat while you're away? Give it some love and attention, deal with health issues as they arise, and give any medications they may need? We've got you covered.

We all worry about our pets becoming lost--but this is especially difficult if it happens while you're away from home.  We offer services that can help, like microchipping and a special tag for your pet's collar that directs rescuers to your contact information through our website.  There is also a place in your account to store photos of your pets, so you have current pictures of your pets anywhere, at any time, should you need them. 

Just an extra layer of safety for the pets you love.  

Want all of this, but not tech savvy?  We can help you set up your account and keep your pets healthy and safe while you're out of town.
