★★★★★ The staff at Scarborough Animal Hospital helped guide us through one of the most devastating weeks of our lives. Our sweet Raven girl was very sick and they tried everything they could. I believe, going above and beyond. We lost her in the end, but it was not for lack of trying and dedication. They wanted her to get well again just as badly, and I could tell that her loss was just as much of hit to them as it was us. They were kind, compassionate and extremely understanding and patient through the whole process and we are truly greatful for them. Specifically, doctor Culver, his tech Lauren and the front desk lady Shelly, but the entire staff in general were everything we could have hoped for during this whole ordeal. (I'm sorry I don't remember more names!) When our hearts have told us it's time for a new pup, we will for sure be returning to Scarborough Animal Hospital for their care.Rebecca C.Rebecca C. ★★★★★ Finally! A vet hospital that has an Avian doctor! I called around and found info on this place. I really needed medical care for my chicken. They set the appointment for me ,right away, and helped diagnose my hen. The staff was so nice and caring.Rita T.Rita T. ★★★★★ Very friendly and caring staff!Greg J.Greg J. ★★★★★ Today a front desk person, named Shelley, I think?, went above and beyond her duties to readjust and update our account to be more accurate. She did this on her own, speaking to her supervisors and contacting the original account holder, without me requesting it. That is the kind of thing that is missing in our world today. She was brave and did what was right. Please, pay her more, as you have locked in a lifelong kitty cat, and employ a person who can be a compassionate self starter and conflict resolver. Hope to meet her at our next appointment.Alex W.Alex W. ★★★★★ One of their techs is so friendly!! Very kind and thorough care - I appreciate everyone here.Kathleen R.Kathleen R. ★★★★★ We moved from MO to ME and unfortunately, my dog had some sort of skin reaction recently. We established care with Scarborough Animal Hospital and they were absolutely wonderful. Everyone from the front desk staff, to the tech, and Dr. Brueckner.

Thank you!Rachel P.Rachel P. ★★★★★ We are new to the area, Sebago, and your facility had been recommended by a neighbor that your facility was the best if we did not mind the trip to Scarborough. During the road trip to Sebago our lab injured her back leg. After calls to closer Sebago vets she wouldn’t be able to be seen for weeks. So taking a chance we called. You got us in the day we arrived. Great service and compassion. Will be our vet for a Sasha and Farley.Bridget C.Bridget C. ★★★★★ I loved the staff and people here.

So glad we found them. 1stacey C.stacey C. ★★★★★ We don't think of our cats as pets, but as family members, and so does Scarborough Animal Hospital! For over 20 years they've delivered top-notch care to our little guys - whether it's a routine office visit or to help us through some very rough times. They also maintain a good relationship with the Scarborough Animal ER, which has been reassuring.

The extra bonus of Scarborough Animal Hospital is their Staff is AMAZING!Mary and Crocker FarrarSolon,MaineMary F.Mary F. ★★★★★ Although I have only been once, this vet office was incredible. They made my kitty feel special and thoroughly listened to my concerns. I LOVE that there is a separate entrance for cats (and small animals) and dogs to avoid additional stress during an already stressful time for our fur babies. All of the staff members were pleasant, thorough, kind, and again very loving towards my kitty. And at the end of my visit, we did not figure out what was going on with my cat because (of course) she didn't cough or do anything at the vet that I had been seeing at home. The vet advised me to try to catch it on video if I noticed that it continued and that she could review and decide if we needed to come back in. I HIGHLY recommend this clinic. Family members have also established here and had very pleasant experiences.Michaela C.Michaela C. ★★★★★ Highly impressed. They got me in quickly, very professional, no judgement and no stress - for me or my pets!Nanci S.Nanci S. ★★★★★ I have a Pitbull and she is not good with going to the vets.

Scarborough Animal Hospital is simply the very best!!!Nina McKeeNina M.Nina M. ★★★★★ I’ve been taking my fur babies to Scarborough Animal Hospital for almost 8 years now & I have recommended them to anyone I know who has a new pet or is looking for a new vet.

The veterinarians are incredibly talented and innovative, as are the staff not only from a clinical perspective but also in a supportive and caring patient management perspective.

If it weren't for me noticing she wasn't well and them getting her in as quickly as they did she probably wouldn't be here today. As most know she was spayed on Thursday, well come Friday morning and she still wasn't herself, wasn't eating much and just all around lethargic. They had me bring her back in and after some xrays and some shots, she is doing so much better after this weekend.Can't thank them enough. 💚💚Brandee S.Brandee S. ★★★★★ Extremely kind staff.
