***IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL ACTIVE CLIENTS***
As of Friday, June 29th 2018, Kennebec Veterinary Services, Inc. will no longer be available to provide “after hours” emergency services on week nights, weekends or holidays for our small animal clients. This change in the business has been brought on by an unanticipated shift in our staffing level of veterinarians. All calls to Kennebec Vet outside of our normal business hours will still be handled by our answering service and you will be instructed to call one of the emergency veterinary providers listed below. We suggest that you make note of these numbers for future reference.
I am sure that after so many years of counting on Kennebec Vet to be available “24/7” this news may come as a huge surprise. While I labored over having to make this decision, it was the only logical choice given the circumstances. We look forward to continuing to be an important part of keeping your pets healthy.

Amazing staff, amazing service! With 5 cats and two dogs I need the best veterinary service in town! We had a sick pig years ago that brought us to Kennebec Veterinary service and I'm thankful we found them!!!! Dr. Matulis saved one of my cats from a severe blood infection. So very grateful for the 24 hour emergency service! This Vet deserves 10 stars
