Portland Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Care is here 24-7 to provide Emergency Veterinary Medicine. If your pet is facing an emergency, please call ahead: 207-878-3121 option 1. We will confirm whether your pet needs immediate attention and give you instructions on how to proceed.

Please be advised that we are an emergency hospital and care is prioritized based upon triage evaluation. Depending on your pet’s state of emergency and medical need, this may extend or shorten your wait time. 

When you arrive, please call us, wear a mask, and wait outside in the parking lot. A member of our team will meet you there to bring your pet inside for treatment. We will stabilize your pet, perform any necessary diagnostic tests, and hospitalize your pet if needed. We will call you when the exam is complete to discuss our findings and recommendations.

For more about this process, please visit our What to Expect page. At PVESC we understand that emergency situations are a stressful and trying time for any pet parent.
