What To Expect

At the DMVC, you can expect the following:

Friendly, prompt service: Our staff will treat you and your pets with courtesy and respect.

An evidence-based approach to pet care: We endeavor to provide a standard of care based on science, evidence, and the recommendations of the AVMA, AAHA, and AAFP.

An emphasis on preventive care: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to our pets. We recommend annual wellness exams for all pets. We recommend yearly wellness blood work for senior pets (dogs seven and older and cats ten and older).

An emphasis on dental health: Dental health is whole body health, and every month is Pet Dental Health Month at DMVC! Our modern veterinary dental suite lets us safely keep your pet’s teeth healthy and pain-free. 

Outpatient urgent care: During our regular business hours, we do our best to accommodate sick and injured pets and, if necessary, will work them in between regularly scheduled appointments. If intensive or overnight care is required, we cooperate with all the local veterinary emergency centers to ensure your pet’s needs are met. If your pet requires urgent care, please contact our front desk at (207) 324-4683 before coming in. 

Surgical Services: All of our full-time veterinarians can perform most soft tissue surgeries on an outpatient basis. We’ve modernized our surgical suite with the latest monitoring equipment to minimize the risk to our patients, and we utilize modern pain control at all stages of a surgical procedure.

Prompt reporting of laboratory results: Our in-house suite of the latest Idexx laboratory devices allows us to report most results on the same day your pet receives an exam.

Compassionate end-of-life care: If your pet’s life journey is coming to an end, we provide compassionate euthanasia and aftercare services. We do not permit “walk-in” or “no-questions-asked” euthanasia. All patients must be evaluated thoroughly to make sure euthanasia is the appropriate course of action.
