Other Available Services

Behavioral Consultations
There are a multitude of behavioral issues which require a variety of treatment approaches. We provide counseling to owners to improve understanding of the problem and formulate behavior modification plans. We augment this with appropriate medications if needed. Consultations are available with Dr. Morna Pixton by appointment.

Pharmacy
We offer a full in-house pharmacy with a wide assortment of medications, topical shampoos and special veterinary diets. This allows us to immediately provide our patients with formulations designed for their specific needs while being able to start them promptly. We carry a full line of flea and tick products as well as heartworm and intestinal parasite preventives. Any medications that we do not stock in the hospital can often be purchased at a local pharmacy or special ordered and shipped to our hospital.

Technician Procedures
Technician procedures, often referred to as "in backs", are available for services that do not require a doctor's exam and are done as a quick outpatient procedure with one of our technicians. These can include nail trims, anal gland expression, medication and subcutaneous fluid administration, drawing samples for blood-work as well as other services. Technicians are always available for questions and technician visits. They will gladly instruct owners how to perform tasks such as nail trims or how to give fluids and other injections, etc. Appointments are not required for technician visits but we do ask that you call ahead so that we know you are coming. Hours for technician visits are Monday-Friday 10am-4pm and 4:30pm-6pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

*Technician visits are unavailable during staff meetings; we will inform owners as to when meetings are as the visits are scheduled.

Euthanasia/Cremation
Saying good-bye to your beloved pet is never easy. We are here to help you through this difficult process. You can choose to take your pet home for burial or have a cremation performed. Cremation is done at an off site location called Trail's End in Westbrook. This service is offered either as communal or private. Communal cremation is a group cremation in which the ashes are later spread in the serene country setting of Trail's End. Private cremation is when you choose to have your pet's ashes returned to you. Paw prints and special urns are available upon request.
