Urgent Care Veterinary Clinic Redefines Patient Care Model by Bridging Gap Between Family Veterinarians and Emergency Hospitals
After-hours veterinary urgent care services will soon be available in Freeport, Maine. PetMedic Urgent Care Vet Clinic plans to open its doors in the new year. The practice will be conveniently located at 200 Lower Main Street in the space formerly occupied by Veterinary Quick Care Freeport.
Modeled after human urgent care, PetMedic offers coordinated, convenient, and compassionate veterinary care for non-life-threatening conditions after regular business hours and on weekends. PetMedic complements pet owners’ trusted family veterinarians and alleviates the case overload at emergency hospitals. This will be the fourth PetMedic location in the Northeast and second in Maine.
The clinic is staffed by an experienced emergency medicine team and is complete with a modern surgical suite, laboratory, digital X-ray, ultrasound system, and cutting-edge software that allows for an efficient workflow for team members.
Dr. Nir Ben-Ari, founder and chief medical officer of PetMedic, commented, “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.”
PetMedic does not perform routine services provided by family veterinary practices, such as wellness visits, or administer vaccinations. Pet owners can make same-day appointments conveniently online. An outstanding healthcare team and client-centric approach is a top priority for all PetMedic clinics.
