My pup already feels better less than 24 hours after being seen. The lady behind the desk during check in was very nice and welcoming. The vet tech was as so kind and good to my dog….

They have always diagnosed the issue accurately, have always been patient and kind, they do check-ins and call backs when needed and are quick to get me in to see a doctor asap. I love how quaint the office is and everyone is delightfully pleasant each and every time. It has never been chaotic or loud and their track record truly gives me great confidence when it comes to caring for my sweet little Lassi.ginger S.ginger S. ★★★★★ Dr. James and Dr. Barker are two of the nicest, considerate veterinarians we've encountered. They listen to our questions and concerns, give straightforward answers and provide anecdotal support. They genuinely seem interested in our dogs' health. The vet techs are wonderful, and show compassion in their care and handling of our dogs. The support staff has always been cheery and helpful, and love giving our dogs attention.

Longtime client and wouldn’t think of going anywhere elseAnn F.Ann F. ★★★★★ We appreciate all the care our pets have received over the years at Pine Point Animal Hospital. From the simple checkups too the heart breaking decisions one has to make. The Drs. and staff have always been so kind. Thank you Dr. Jamie for our positive visit this past week!Archies mom 🙂cindy F.cindy F. ★★★★★ I needed a new vet for my dog. I called PPAH and they got us in as soon as they could (not an urgent visit). The day of our appointment, we were taken into a room very quickly after checking in. The vet (Dr. Barker - I mean can that be a better name for vet?!) was amazing and gentle. I am always appreciative when the vet sits on the floor with you and pet! And Dr. Barker did. I am positive I picked the right place and my dog will get the best care possible.Stephanie R.Stephanie R. ★★★★★ Phenomenal staffRobert A.Robert A. ★★★★★ This is the best group of pet Professionals I have encountered in Southern Maine. They have always worked with me, they have always put my pets needs 1st and in a way that lets you know it is very genuine. Unfortunately for me, my species of choice has a short lifespan and always ends up with that dreaded drive to the vets office for your last goodbyes. I have shed more tears than I can count in those exam rooms over the years but I have never felt alone. Thank you PPAH staff. You guys are everything <3Azrael G.Azrael G. ★★★★★ I’ve had some interesting experiences with local vets in searching for care for our Guinea pigs. I was out of town when my family had an emergency — they said Pine Point bent over backwards to get our piggy seen on a holiday. Even though we received the news no family wants to hear, we greatly appreciate their honesty and efforts.Bethany I.Bethany I. ★★★★★ I switched vets when I noticed there was no connection between myself and my previous veterinarian (of the day!). Never seemed to be the same person, and none of them knew who my pets were anymore 😞My babies mean the world to me, and like so many of us, we need that connection with our veterinarians to always be sure we are all providing the best care for our babes ♥️ Pine Point Animal Hospital has restored my faith in veterinary care 💯!!!!!Khara St. H.Khara St. H. ★★★★★ Pine Point is always kind and helpful. They have always been able to squeeze us in at anytime and treat our pets with care and respect. It’s worth the hour and a half drive for us to see them.Genevieve T.Genevieve T. ★★★★★ Would never take my Min Pin anywhere else. The staff is always so welcoming! She loves the care she gets from Dr.James. He is amazing with her and honest with me about any health concerns and things I could do better as a dog mom😀Cheryl J.Cheryl J. ★★★★★ Very professional and knowledgeable staff starting from the front desk to the doctors.Paula B.Paula B. ★★★★★ We just moved to the Scarborough area and needed a veterinarian for our two dogs. One of the staff in the practice from our previous residence was from Maine and suggested we try Pine Point when we relocated. We're so happy with that recommendation. On our first visit with Lizzie, Dr. Morrill got down onto the floor instead of putting her on the exam table. That told us he is gentle and compassionate with the animals. Lizzie was more relaxed than she was at other veterinary visits. He accurately diagnosed an ear inflammation and treated the condition, which subsided almost immediately. We wholeheartedly recommend this excellent animal hospital.Andrew G.Andrew G. ★★★★★ The entire staff and all of the vets at Pine Point Animal Hospital are so incredible! They care so much about you and your pets and I couldn't be happier with my experience with them!Heather D.Heather D. ★★★★★ The vets were super careful with my bunny and were able to answer any questions I had regarding his care and health. They also gave him a complimentary nail trim which was much appreciated. I will definitely be coming back in the future with my bunny!Greta R.Greta R. ★★★★★ Last week my little house bunny Buddha was in severe stress and the caring staff at Pine Point Animal Hospital took immediate action! Dr. Katie and her intern came in to the exam room and sat right down on the floor at his level with me. (Which is amazing in and of itself!) It was clear to the doctor that he needed surgery ASAP. And within 2 days he was in safe hands on the operating table. She found a much more complicated problem than expected and with the help of one of the other doctors made the decision to complete the delicate surgery necessary to return my little cream puff to good health. Everyone there was caring, compassionate and listened to our needs like he was their own. He even had to go back for some critical care the day after. He's home recovering now, baby steps back to himself. Thank you ALL! I highly recommend Pine Point Animal Hospital!!Sincerely,Laura Dunn, Peter and Buddhalauradunn A.lauradunn A. ★★★★★ Miss you Dr. Barksdale. Happy retirement, and thank you for all the rabbit expertise and kindness over the years.Max CMax C ★★★★★ I can heartily recommend Pine Point Animal Hospital where I take my two kitties to see Dr. James. He is most compassionate, really listens and is so personable. The excellent office staff is at the ready to be of help whenever you call and greets you warmly as you enter and when your appointment is over. Here are little Myra (momma) and her boy, Mosley who makes about 3 of his mom!Patricia K.Patricia K. ★★★★★ They are all great and kind I had to put my sweet baby girl to sleep and they were so great about everything *** edited it's been 3 years and I have a new furbaby I brought her in this week for her first appointment with Pine Point Animal hospital and I will never go anywhere else they are just as amazing as ever they explained things and answered all my thousands of questions I have always recommended them to anyone who asks about where to take their animals and I will continue to recommend themBecky B.Becky B. ★★★★★ Love this hospital. The Vets and the staff are compassionate animal lovers and it shows. We've brought our pet here for 14 years and they've cared for him every step of the way.Felicia K.Felicia K. ★★★★★ I drive by a vet to go here! they are so good with my cats!Mel D.Mel D. ★★★★★ My Labrador needed an emergency visit today and this place got us right in for an appointment! Everyone that cared for her today was absolutely wonderful and made Del-Rae very comfortable. Highly recommend this establishment, and a extra shout out to Dr. Morrill for his expertise, advice and care & thank you Danielle for being so sweet to my Del! She is feeling much better already and cozied up on the couch resting.Calvin I.Calvin I. ★★★★★ For over 17 years Dr Katie and the staff at PPAH cared for our dogs. Our pups lived almost 17 years. Dr Katie is extremely knowledgeable about the needs of the animals in her care. She provides all necessary information so you can make an informed decision as to what is in the best interest of your pet and your budget. She is always compassionate and kind, especially through the more difficult times. I am grateful to have our new puppy in her care.Karen T.Karen T. ★★★★★ We had a bunny emergency, our regular vet was not able to get us in, after calling probably 10 other offices, Pine Point Animal Hospital was willing to get us in right away. Staff was extremely knowledgeable and Dr. James was so good with Echo.Thank you so much!!Amy D.Amy D. ★★★★★ The whole staff was so nice and accommodating to Belle. She was nervous but they made her feel comfortable and tried to calm her down. We were brought in on time and our visit was informative, I felt much better after we left.Laura T.Laura T. ★★★★★ Exotic Vet. When I needed a vet for my hamster, I found them, they quickly got us in on both occasions that I needed them and the cost was very acceptable. Were very responsive and informative. Very happy with the staff that work out front. Always very nice and take time to listen.Crystal C.Crystal C. ★★★★★ This vet is very caring. Our guniea pig got sick on the 1 hour ride to Maine. We thought he was just car sick but when he didn't get better in a day we brought him here. He did pass away minutes before we walked in the door but they still took him in and prepared him for an at home burial. They were kind enough to also make a clay foot print. They did this all at no charge.Victoria S.Victoria S. ★★★★★ Incredibly professional staffKeith D.Keith D. ★★★★★ They are fantastic with my pets. Two years ago I had to put my kitty Lady Bug down. I had them get me the ashes. They went above and beyond. Cedar box, some of here fur and a casting of her foot print. They also gave me cards.. Now they are taking care of Nugget and Magie Magpie. They tell the truth. I 100% recommend them.Also Nuggett is 12 and I have had him since he was 1. he has been to many different vets due to me moving... He has not liked any of them till now... He loves you guys and so does MagieLaura G.Laura G. ★★★★★ The doctors, vet techs, and front desk staff treat us with kindness and compassion. They clearly know we love our pets, and they make it their business to help us and our fur babies feel safe and comfortable. The doctors spend time getting to know us and remember our pets from visit to visit. They are calm and gentle even when circumstances are difficult. They are knowledgeable and share all the information we need to make informed decisions. They are upfront about costs, options for treatment, risks and likely outcomes. I never feel pressured and I always feel understood. They make me feel like I can ask any questions and they are not rushing to finish the appointment. I highly recommend Pine Point Animal Hospital for pet care to my family and friends.Lisa M.Lisa M. ★★★★★ I would not go to another vet if I have the choice. They are great with my pets and patient with me in the emotional times. Recently I was able to send a video of my Cat's issue without having to bring him in. They are on top of things! I have been bringing my babies for 7 years.Holly K.Holly K. ★★★★★ The staff were incredible people and very thoughtfulAlina R.Alina R. ★★★★★ Quick, compassionate care for an old dog in crisis.diane B.diane B. ★★★★★ Excellent care for my dog and knowledgeable, professional staff.Sheila T.Sheila T. ★★★★★ For me , The Folks at Pine Pint Animal hospital are Amazing ….

I am very Grateful for them and cannot Thank or Recommend them Enough.Melinda M.Melinda M. ★★★★★ They're always looking for ways to improve their veterinary services including the animals they care for, how they communicate with their clients, and the types of services they provide. They took excellent care of my previous dog and continue to do so with my current one. The staff and vets are Deaf-friendly, so they know how to communicate effectively with their Deaf clients (including ASL/sign language, texting, and writing back and forth). There's no where else I would rather take my furbabies for their vet care!Amy Leone R.Amy Leone R. ★★★★★ Have always received the highest level of care for my animals from my little chinchilla and guinea pigs to my dog and everything in between.Robert F.Robert F. ★★★★★ I have several pets so we visit the clinic often. We moved to the area just over a year ago and started using Pine Point. I love all the doctors and the staff are all very friendly and professional. They really care about my furkids and anytime I have a question I know they will get back to me asap. .Sherry H.Sherry H. ★★★★★ All the staff and doctors are amazing!!!!!Mia Y.Mia Y. ★★★★★ It was a great visit!Russ B.Russ B. ★★★★★ if you're looking for rabbit care, stop searching bc you found the place!I brought my 13 year old bunny to a place bc he was super congested and sneezing, and they chalked it up to a respiratory infection bc his oral exam on the spot looked fine.One day a handful of months later, he started drooling and didn't eat banana which is his FAVORITE, so I knew something was wrong.I brought him to Pine Point Animal Hospital where from the very start they treated Edward with amazing care. They got a towel and put it on the ground and opened the crate and let him come out on his own terms. They did an oral exam and they couldn't see anything glaring but said sedation would be needed to fully examine him. (Hello prey animal) Come to find out, he had extensive bone spurs on his back molars that were likely causing him severe pain. The surgeon called me after he was done filing them down and what I thought would be a quick call letting me know he was done, the call lasted 9 minutes with the surgeon taking his time to explain everything and answer all of my questions. I feel so guilty that it got to the point of him drooling for him to finally get help bc of a bad first diagnosis! But I'm incredibly grateful to find this place!Chelsea A.Chelsea A. ★★★★★ Love this vet! Started by bringing our three rats here and ended up switching our cats over to them as well since they were so awesome! Dr. Anne especially is so knowledgeable and compassionate and also listens to any concerns you may have as an owner. We unfortunately had to put down two of our rats here and the care they gave to us and our little ladies at the end of their life was amazing. Their vet techs are the sweetest! I wish I could remember your names because I would shout you out you made an awful day much more bearable.Maddie S.Maddie S. ★★★★★ We sought veterinary care here for our two dogs when we first moved to Maine three years ago. The vets are thorough; the staff all seem friendly and respectful. The place is clean and the atmosphere is welcoming for both pet and owner. One of my dogs gets quite upset during his visits, and the staff are always compassionate, patient, and transparent. I never have any issues reaching them by phone or scheduling appointments. The appointment reminders are nice, too. I appreciate their electronic record keeping so that I can maintain a printed copy of all exams, vaccinations, tests and procedures. I would say the prices have been fair. We tried another vet after we moved farther north, but recently returned--they simply do a great job. Worth the commute south.Lauren F.Lauren F. ★★★★★ Have been going there for years. Excellent vets. I tried several in the Portland area before meeting the two women who started this practice at another vet practice. They and the other vets as well as the support staff are all competent and genuinely care about the animals under their care. I recommend them to anyone who needs care for their pets.Elizabeth R.Elizabeth R. ★★★★★ The professionalism and level of care for their patients is unmatched.Erica G.Erica G. ★★★★★ Dr. Katie and crew, always a pleasure seeing them! The best care for all of my animals, I will not take them anywhere else!Benjamin M.Benjamin M. ★★★★★ Everyone was so friendly and took such great care of our kitten, Chuckie. Dr. Katie is the best and we can’t wait to come back! She is knowledgeable, caring, and easy to talk to.Meagan C.Meagan C. ★★★★★ I just got a hamster and the vet that I use for my other fur babies does not handle anything other than dogs and cats. I was referred to Pine Point who got me on the schedule within a day for my hamster. She had an impacted cheek pouch but I wanted it looked at to be sure that it was not a tumor and how I can fix the impact. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitely keep going there and highly recommend!Catharine Ste. M.Catharine Ste. M. ★★★★★ Highly recommend this place if you own ferrets. Dr. Katie is awesome and very knowledgeable in regards to them. I drive an hour to see her, she's the only one (and I've seen 3 others) who actually know about ferrets.Val S.Val S. ★★★★★ Always friendly, throrough and never rushed. My bunnies are at ease and given wonderful care.M C.M C. ★★★★★ The staff are very sweet and helpful, the doctor is incredibly informative and friendly.Nat BNat B ★★★★★ Very caring and skilled.Alan C.Alan C. ★★★★★ Knowledgeable and convenientCaroleah M.Caroleah M. ★★★★★ Called in because my cat is having trouble eating and the woman on the phone was incredibly empathetic and regretfully told me they don't have any appointments. They did however listen to my issues and refer me to a feline only vet that helped.If the staff answering phones is this compassionate and helpful, i imagine the entire clinic is wonderful.Breanna K.Breanna K. ★★★★★ So amazing with my cat and great prices too. All of the staff are so nice.Ben B.Ben B. ★★★★★ Took dog and were quickMIchael G.MIchael G. ★★★★★ A great place to bring your pets. Dr.Ann is the best. The whole staff is very compassionate.

Recently we have had a sick little pup and have been to the vet 4 times in the last 3 weeks and all I can say is WOW! Dr. Ann had us come right in and helped us the first time which meant the world to us. She helped me stay calm and really explained everything. The last three were with Dr. Katie and she jumped in and (hopefully) have found the solution to make our little girl feel better!!I can't thank all the staff at Pine Point enough for helping us and being the best caregiver to our fur baby!!!Madison S.Madison S.js_loader

Angela S.

I have been bringing my dogs to Dr Ann and Dr Katie for years!  In fact I followed them from Portland to their practice in Scarborough.  I pass a lot of vet offices on the way there, and I don’t think twice about it. Pine Point Animal hospital is a great little place to bring your family pets

Todd Z.

I am so grateful for Pine Point Animal Hospital. Dr. Ann Barksdale is so knowledgeable and kind, the staff is welcoming and thoughtful. I live in Portland but the combination of expertise and hospitality make Pine Point Animal Hospital an easy drive.

Peter M.
