PetMedic Urgent Care Vet Clinic to open second Maine location
This new location will continue to bridge the gap between emergency hospitals and family veterinarians
PetMedic announced it will open its doors to its new PetMedic Urgent Care Vet Clinic at 200 Lower Main Street in Freeport, Maine in 2023. This will be the fourth PetMedic location and the second located in Maine.
"We are thrilled to be opening our second Maine location. Our roots run deep in the Portland area, and we've seen that the need for veterinary urgent care is high. Pet parents love the after-hours and weekend options, and our healthcare network appreciates the extra hands when they're overloaded. It's a win-win for the community in every respect," said Nir Ben-Ari, DVM, founder and chief medical officer of PetMEdic, in an organizational release.1
According to the release, PetMedic clinics are modeled after human urgent care centers to provide pet parents with a coordinated, convenient, and compassionate visit for pets suffering from non-life-threatening conditions.1 Open after hours on weekdays and weekends, PetMedics staff aims to help family veterinarians by providing some relief to emergency hospitals.
PetMedic also disclosed that it does not provide routine services that the family veterinarian performs. Instead, the urgent care has a digital x-ray, laboratory, surgical suite, ultrasound, and software to help the team work efficiently. PetMedic also allows pet parents to make same-day appointments online.
