Just as older people have different healthcare needs than younger people, senior pets require different care than required by young pets. Here at Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we recommend an exam and bloodwork/urinalysis/blood pressure check every 6-8 months in our senior pets. It is important to remember that every year for a dog or cat is […]
Many people assume that euthanasia must be the hardest part of my job as a veterinarian and surprisingly (and truthfully), it isn’t. I see it as gift we can give to animals that are at the end of their life and are suffering. Many clients ask me if I think it’s time for them to euthanize their elderly or […]
October and November are Senior Pet Care Months at Acadia At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we’re committed to helping owners enrich the lives of their pets. Senior pets can live a longer, healthier and more active life by eating right and catching diseases while they are still manageable. Did you know? Pets age about seven years […]
Arthritis is a very common condition in our middle-aged to older companion animals. It is estimated to be present in 20-25% of our senior dogs, and up to 90% in our senior cats!

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are allowing 1 client per pet into the hospital (up to a maximum of 3 clients in our hospital at one time). When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us so a staff member can meet you at the door and bring you and your pet into the hospital for an examination.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own. While in the exam room please minimize contact and be mindful of physical distancing in the confined space.
You may choose to continue with the "closed-door" approach and we can obtain a history over the phone and then collect the pet at the door for the exam. The Veterinarian will then call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
