"The mutual love and respect we share with clients and pets. This video, taken by a client to share the story of a beloved pet named Obi, shows how genuine care and concern – from pet owners and caregivers alike – can lead to some magical outcomes."
"My wife and I recently moved back to Maine. As with any move, finding trusted service providers is always a challenge. We loved our vet in Kansas City, and wanted to make sure we found an equally good practice here in Portland. Our last vet was AAHA-accredited, so we searched the AAHA website, and after reviewing the websites for accredited vets in greater Portland, decided Falmouth Veterinary Hospital looked closest to the size, style, service and sophistication of our vet in KC. When I mentioned our choice to an old family friend, she said her family had trusted Falmouth Vet Hospital for many years.
Shortly after we moved, our Bichon Frise, Boomer, had blood in his urine. We took him in for a checkup, and Dr. Graves immediately zeroed in on a likely culprit - bladder stones - which he quickly confirmed with x-ray, ultrasound and urinalysis. He explained our options, and said that for the particular type of stone Boomer had, surgical intervention was advised. They gave us an estimate and we scheduled the procedure for a few days later.
Dr. Lyons performed the surgery and did a great job. Both doctors were kind, compassionate, competent, and thorough in their explanations and patient as my wife and I asked them a million questions to make sure we took good care of Boomer post-op.
Boomer is healing well, with no infection or other complications...though he's not much of a fan of the Comfy Cone he has to wear.
Our costs were very reasonable...the surgery came in one the low end of the estimate, and the front office staff was happy to help us submit our insurance paperwork to VPI.
We are so happy to have found Falmouth Veterinary Hospital and will be trusting them to care for our current and future four-legged friends."

"Having just moved to the area, I asked around for a veterinary recommendation. This office, while a little out of the way, was the highest on everyone's list, with dozens of good stories and reviews. I recently brought our older cat in when he was sick. The women at the desk were helpful and concerned, and were able to fit him in right away, even when I annoyingly had to reschedule at the last minute. We saw Dr. Lyons, who was immediately trusted by our typically wary cat. Dr. Lyon is gentle, informative, genuinely caring, and a Friend of Cats. We had arrived early, and the doctors and techs I saw while in the waiting room were the same way, relaxing both the patients and their people.
Having a very limited income, it was also good of them to work with me on what our cat needed right away, and the best way we could care for him at home. Kindly and respectively, too. I understand that medical care is expensive, and I intend to pay for it, but our last vet charged us for procedures that did not need to be done, while their misdiagnosis cost us an additional year of pain for our cat and over a thousand dollars. And they were just plain nasty.
Enough about them. Falmouth Veterinary also has an informative website with information about their staff. I don't usually write a review after just one visit, but my cat is on the mend, I have heard only glowing reviews about the rest of the staff, and everyone involved with our visit went above and beyond to help a cat in need."

"We have been taking our pets here for several years. Our vet is Dr. Hazzard who is absolutely top-notch. She provides compassionate and professional care in any situation we have encountered. We have also seen other doctors in the practice when Dr. Hazzard wasn't available. Dr. Wack and Dr. Andrews were great too. We've always been thoroughly impressed with all of the staff in this practice. They have had some very informative open house events too. It's a nice way to check out all aspects of the practice. If you have a cat, they have a special waiting room for your feline friend. It's worth it!"

"Regarding Tobias' recent visit to see Doctor Wack, we as always, are very pleased with Doctor Wack's knowledge, empathy, and superb care for our Miniature Schnauzer. The Doctor provided excellent analysis regarding his loose stools, and solutions to help solve Tobias' problem.
Barbara and I continue to be extremely impressed with every woman and man that works for Falmouth Veterinary Hospital. Everyone on staff exhibits a very high degree of caring, professionalism, and knowledge. We feel very fortunate to be a client."

"This is a 10 star facility!!! It is professional caring and kind to animals and owners!!!"
"I travel 60 miles round-trip to take my cats to FVH. My doc is Dr. Katy Hazzard. She's awesome. The other docs that have seen my cats were also wonderful but I believe in developing a relationship so my pets get the best care. Also whenever I've had to call the office, the front-desk staff have been wonderful. Worth the drive!!! >3 FVH"

"Hi, everyone! Our most recent trip to see you was a pleasure, as always. We always feel warmly welcomed and embraced by your kindness and interest in our well-being. Rochester and Byron's "manicures" look fantastic and from the bottom of my heart I thank you all for the kindness you have shown all my dogs dating back to Duncan in 1977. (And you were giving my Mom and Dad great care with their pets even before that!). You truly are a veterinary establishment that is second to none."

"Hi there, you folks are the BEST hands down! Going back 3 years to Olivia’s hamster, to our kitty Beyonce, to the passing of my beloved Gloria and now our new addition Oliver! I put my trust in all of you and you have certainly earned it! The kind and caring personalities that you all display is so warming and greatly appreciated. Thank you!"

"I was trying to get my 4.5 year old Corgi, Josie, to be seen on the same day because she had a hard lump which I had been watching for a year and a half. The lump that I had been watching opened up and was bleeding. I wanted to know the cause and if it was anything serious. I was so grateful that the team quickly got back to (within 20 minutes) to notify me that there had been a cancellation. The staff was upbeat and friendly. Dr. Graves was great with Josie. Additionally, my anxiety in regards to her condition was eased as he described to me that she likely had a sebaceous cyst and not a mass tumor (which is where my mind had gone to). He showed me exactly what he squeezed out of the cyst so I could better understand what was going on. He was patient and his explanations were clear. I really appreciate that he took the time to go over this with me. I understand that Josie's cyst is probably no more than that and appreciate his conservative approach. He also gave me instructions on how to treat the open wound. Thanks for all your help and I will recommend you to anyone in need of a second opinion or a new vet!"

"This was my first visit to your practice, and my pooch Laredo’s first big adventure since I adopted him 2 months ago. Dr. Hazzard and Sue were great and made both Laredo and I feel comfortable and welcomed.
I appreciated the thoroughness of the exam and the explanations of what the Dr. was doing and what it meant for my pet. The take-home treats were a great touch. My other pets are very excited to come to the practice and meet folks and get some treats.
Thanks for making Laredo’s first trip to the vet a good one. He was relaxed and content when we left and that’s unusual for him. I look forward to growing this relationship!"

"Our trip to Falmouth Vet more than exceeded our expectations. Although Dr. Lyons was in surgery that day, she agreed to fit Annie in between checking in her surgical patients and actually beginning her work. And, in spite of our last minute request, we were not shorted on attention or care from all of the staff at your office. We were also given a choice as to what kind and extent of possible treatments, allowing what would work out the best for us and, more importantly, Annie."

"I brought Hope in for a vaccination visit, I didn't think to call ahead and let you know that I wanted someone to look into Hope's ear as I thought she had an infection. The staff was kind enough to check if a doctor was available for us. Dr Lyons made some time to see us and treat Hope's ear. We were very appreciative; everyone we saw treated her and us with care and kindness. I will always recommend the Falmouth Vet"
