WELCOME! 

Harbor Road is a full-service veterinary medical facility located on Route 131, just off Route 1, in South Thomaston, Maine.  We have been caring for pets in the midcoast area (and beyond) since 1995.

Our professional and courteous staff seek to provide the highest quality wellness, medical, surgical and dental treatments for their highly-valued patients, with an emphasis on client education.  We believe in partnering with our clients to promote responsible pet ownership and preventative health care, and will treat every patient and client with personal and individual attention and consideration.

We are always pleased to welcome new clients and patients. Please continue to explore our website, and feel free to contact us by phone or email to learn more about our practice and how we can serve the needs of you and your family pets.  


 

  

Are you ready for spring?

Many of your pets are due for a visit to Harbor Road this time of year.  Along with the all-important physical exam, dogs may be due for their heartworm test, which also tests for three tick-borne diseases - very important in our area!  We also recommend annual intestinal parasite checks and deworming for dogs and cats, and definitely want to make sure everybody is taking preventatives for fleas, ticks and heartworms, and is up to date on vaccinations.

We look forward to spring - it's really coming! - and to seeing you soon!
