Thank You to the entire team at Scarborough Animal Hospital.Michael Kennedy (.Michael Kennedy (. ★★★★★ Have a cockatiel that needed urgent care for legband causing his leg to swell and cutting into the leg. Our former avian vet service no longer did birds. Called several regular and emergency vets that indicated they dealt with birds but all either no longer dealt with birds or they weren't taking new patients. Found Scarborough Animal Hospital on line on Saturday morning, contacted them, they had recently added an avian vet to their staff, fit us in even though we had never been there before. Dr Brueckner was very knowledgeable and caring, removed the band, and cleaned the wound which was much worse than we thought, prescribed antibiotics and pain med for him. It has been 5 days and he is healed and almost back to his normal activity level. Staff was very nice and helpful on the phone and in person, price was very reasonable. We will be bringing all of our birds (have 4)) there from now on.Scott P.Scott P. ★★★★★ They took such good care of my bunny.

At my first visit, I was pleasantly surprised with how affordable the care was and how services were discussed honestly and without trying to make a sale. When my elderly dog recently had to be put down, Dr. Ford and his staff were extremely compassionate and gentle. I would definitely recommend them to care for your pets.Beth H.Beth H. ★★★★★ Always caring, friendly and efficient! We have trusted them with our pets for years.Catt M.Catt M. ★★★★★ Only the best specialists work here and really do a great job of handling the pet and (very importantly) the owner with care. Can’t overstate how good we feel after leaving, knowing all our questions have been answered and we weren’t made to feel stupid or wasting their time.Jared M.Jared M. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff explained everything I needed to know very clearly and was very kind to my kittyE.J. “THE KING” N.E.J. “THE KING” N. ★★★★★ I lived in Maine a few years ago and began taking my rabbit, Maple, to Scarborough Animal Hospital. Maple developed a tooth abscess which required surgery. Dr. Ford clearly has a love and passion for rabbits, and I knew I was in good hands. Although her surgery did leave her mouth partially paralyzed and she still takes antibiotics daily, 3 years later, she is still a happy, spunky bunny. I often reflect on how fortunate I was to have been living in Maine and receiving this level of care during this time. Every year that goes by I am grateful that Maple is still with me. She means so much to me and I can’t thank Dr. Ford and the rest of the staff enough!Jessica L.Jessica L. ★★★★★ Thank you for your utmost professionalism during a difficult time. Kitty says, "thank you!" as well.William MacCallum (.William MacCallum (. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Scarborough Animal Hospital to our friends/family. They are so professional, reasonable, kind, and honest. They bundle visits and immunizations when possible so as to avoid many visit charges. They are reasonably cautious but not alarmists. We are so glad we switched!Office N.Office N. ★★★★★ I recently established care for my cat with Dr. Gould. I am probably more afraid of the vet than my cat is but I have to say I’m happy with this establishment. They allow one person inside with a mask which is important to me. Their prices are reasonable which is also important to me. My cat was seen in a very timely manner and Dr. Gould was able to answer all of my questions while still being efficient. She is knowledgeable and understanding to my pet’s situation and my desire to manage her medical issues at this time. No scare tactics that I’ve seen vets use before and they did not guilt me about wanting a month to save up to get some blood work done on my baby, we just made an appointment for next month and a plan to manage her in the mean time, no guilt or fear or judgment noted. I highly recommend.Melissa A. K.Melissa A. K. ★★★★★ Scarborough Animal Hospital is an excellent place to take animals. We brought our rabbit there and received excellent servicePamela P.Pamela P. ★★★★★ Great place, great customer service, and most importantly I trust my dogs wellbeing when he is a patient there.Michael (.Michael (. ★★★★★ Wonderful vets that care and treat your pet like it's their own! We've been going here for 12 years and it has been an amazing experience!Jeff C.Jeff C. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff who genuinely care about every animal that comes through the door. We've used them for many years for our cats and have always been pleased.Sharon O.Sharon O. ★★★★☆ Thankfully, they are there for emergencies. Friendly helpful staff. But it took a long time and was quite expensive. Some unneeded items were on the bill.Rich E.Rich E. ★★★★☆ Overall we're satisfied with Scarborough Animal Hospital. There are a few things that aren't our favorite (there was a struggle with one employee not liking us as pet parents because we weren't married, but that was addressed), but the care is good and our dog likes the staff. They are expensive. So go in prepared.The facility is clean and well lit. Most employees are nice, they answer questions, etc. I do wish there was a bit more consistency between vets, but understand some are more laid back about things than others.Danielle F.Danielle F. ★★★★☆ My senior cat has been coming here for over a year now. He had some issues over the weekend so I called yesterday and they were able to get him in that day! I appreciate how kind and efficient the office staff are as well as the veterinarian that we saw (Dr. Culver.)Paula T.Paula T. ★★★★☆ I would give them 4.5 stars if it would let me. Brought my three dogs in for their first visit with SAH and had a wonderful experience. The front staff were helpful and the vet that saw my pets were wonderful. I would have given them 5 stars, Unfortunately they have outdated payment methods and I had to find a new vet. I was very sad about this. If you use Care credit or pet insurance(and by this I mean they do not direct bill with insurance which is one service I rely on.) this is not the Vet hospital for you. If financing isn't a problem for you I would highly recommend them.Cory T.Cory T. ★★★★☆ Dr Ford is THE rabbit vet around! He's the best!Kristen F.Kristen F.js_loader
