Portland's TRUSTED FEAR FREE veterinarians


About Us

  1. We are veterinarian owned - You'll consistently see friendly, familiar faces at every visit. With on-site owner/veterinarians, you'll always get to see the same doctor.

  2. We are Fear Free - All of our staff have been trained and certified in reducing the stress of veterinary visits for pets and their owners. This means lots of special treats, dog beds, cat perches, high-grip floors, calming music and in-room payment processing, among many other touches that make our clinic feel like home.

  3. We are cutting-edge - With a highly trained staff, a dedicated dental suite, digital radiography, ultrasound, in-house laboratory machines, advanced anesthetic monitoring and much more.

  4. We are online - Use our patient portal to view complete medical records and browse and book appointments. Visit our online store to place orders, fulfill prescriptions and see recommendations. 

  5. We have a welcoming, modern facility - Our hospital was designed for you and your pet's comfort and safety. We have separate cat and dog exam rooms and treatment areas, a complimentary beverage station and WiFi throughout the facility.

  6. We have parking - Our large, dedicated parking lot guarantees an easy visit.

  7. We are on the Back Cove - Enjoy a walk on the trail after your appointment, or just enjoy the view from our reception windows.

  8. We are local - We strongly believe in living local. We are based out of Portland, and do business with local suppliers. We make every effort to support our local community.

  9. We are convenient - Our location is just seconds from 295, allowing easy access from all of Portland, Falmouth, South Portland, Scarborough and Cape Elizabeth. We offer evening and Saturday hours to make sure even the busiest pet-owners can get great veterinary care.

  10. We are flexible - Don't have time for an appointment? Drop off your pet on the way to work, and pick them up on your drive home. We'll take care of any medical issues or wellness updates, and your pet will enjoy a day of love, fun and day-care!

We opened Back Cove Animal Hospital in the Summer of 2019 to provide a completely new veterinary experience. You are not likely to find a group of people more invested in you and your pets anywhere else. Our goal is to provide exceptional client and patient care tailored to you and your pet's unique needs.

Here are just a few of the ways we are doing that:
