Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care (PVESC) is a private, locally-owned, and operated, multi-specialty veterinary center. We have been serving Maine for more than thirty years. PVESC provides expert specialty and emergency care for your pet — and peace of mind for you. We work in partnership with veterinary practices throughout New England to step in when more advanced care is needed.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality medical, surgical and critical care to our patients, and offer excellent service to our clients. Emergency services are available at our Warren Avenue campus 24/7/365. Staffed with Critical Care Specialists, experienced emergency veterinarians, and skilled technicians, you can count on PVESC to care for your pet when your regular day clinic isn’t open or if critical care is needed. Be advised that care is prioritized based on triage determination. This may affect wait times. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. 

Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care can be reached around the clock at 207-878-3121.
