Cape Veterinary Clinic has been in South Portland serving the local community since 1958. It was originated by Dr. Ladd Hildebrand, and then purchased in 1972 by Drs. Eric and Carol Robison, who laid the foundation for our community-oriented practice. Dr. Davis began working with the Robisons in 2003, so when they were looking to retire, they didn’t have to look far for someone they trusted to purchase the veterinarian clinic. In 2007 Dr. Davis and Dr. Flahive became the new owners of the Cape Vet Clinic. As you can see, we have lots of experience. Explore our veterinary services today!

Never had a problem and any question I have is always answered and given solutions!Tiff BTiff B ★★★★★ I wanted to give an updated review, although not much has changed! I've always had such wonderful, positive experiences at Cape Vet. The receptionists are always very kind and efficient, and the vet techs and veterinarians clearly care a lot about the animals. My springer Bonnie has been going here since she was 8 weeks old - she's a little testy in the medical environment, but she still gets all the love when she visits Dr. Greenbaum and the rest of the staff. I also take my lucky cat Cricket here - she sees Dr. Conti and I am confident she gets the best of care. I've recently switched my mom's two cats over to Cape Vet as well, with great results.

I was nervous because even though it was just a cat checkup it had been awhile since our cat had been to the vet and I was nervous for her and for the whole experience. Dr. Risteen and her staff were absolutely DELIGHTFUL and incredible. She was so kind to me, and to my cat. She loved her up, was so knowledgeable and warm and made me feel at ease with all of my questions. I can’t say enough good things about the experience! So excited that we found a place that feels so wonderful!Lauren A.Lauren A. ★★★★★ This clinic is wonderful. From the beginning, they helped revitalize an area of South Portland that needed new businesses. They bought local. They support local vendors. As they’ve grown they’ve kept the right values and attitudes. I’ve always been greeted with a smiling face and eager to assist employees. Even as they’ve gotten larger they continue to keep a clean, safe, inviting and professional environment. This past year or two the demand for animals and their services have increased while supply of workers have decreased (or hard to find) and this clinic has done a great job navigating that water while continuing to grow and not “lose themselves” in the growth. We recently joined the Cape family with our dog, Jack. Our vet was a young grad that was great and very knowledgeable. Not only will you have great healthcare for your pets but you’ll be giving back to them and supporting local business. Two thumbs up.Drew H.Drew H. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff and quick service for the fur babieslittlevillinchillinlittlevillinchillin ★★★★★ Always top notch service.

Good friends of ours recommended Cape Veterinary Clinic because of the quality of care and the value of the services. The staff were professional, helpful, and friendly.

Highly recommend.Lisa KLisa K ★★★★★ Great Drs and vet techs. Doing a fantastic job through this pandemic and much better location than previous one on Cottage.Rust L.Rust L. ★★★★★ You guys are the best! Thank you for taking care of our fur-baby, and for allaying the anxiety of the fur-baby's family!Rebecca O.Rebecca O. ★★★★★ My dog has a condition that requires her to have a shot every month so I am a regular. I have other pets that are patients there, too. Professional doctors, professional vet techs and friendly office staff.June H.June H. ★★★★★ I've gone to Cape Vet for many years, for multiple dogs and cats for the past 18 years. They're so attentive, respectful, cheerful and professional. I've never had a bad experience. I highly recommend them!Anna S.Anna S. ★★★★★ Cape Veterinary Clinic is simply one of the best veterinary care facilities around. From the office staff to their doctors, the team at Cape Vet are friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, they show your pets (their patients) love with a supreme attention to detail. Our two small dogs have both undergone procedures requiring a general anesthetic, and Cape Vet did a wonderful job each time, setting our worries at ease. Our dogs have had operations with Dr. Davis, with whom we have been particularly impressed.Joe G.Joe G. ★★★★★ My pets have always been well cared for at Cape Veterinary. The staff as well as the owners have been more than responsive whenever my pet's have needed medical care. I am so grateful that I can count on myneighborhood Veterinarian. Dr. Bill was wonderful when my Siamese cat Mia, became sick with terminal cancer. Through the worst of Covid, Dr. Bill and his staff's great care of Mia gave me two extra special months with her.Anne R.Anne R. ★★★★★ Great service in a rush situation.Andy T.Andy T. ★★★★★ Cape Vet takes the best care of my dogs. They are always responsive and I can tell that each member of their staff cares about the health/happiness of my pets!Russell T.Russell T. ★★★★★ Everything went as expected with Neutering our puppy. Great care and service.Richard M.Richard M. ★★★★★ always love the care that they have provided my dogs past and present. .Paul C.Paul C. ★★★★☆ I've been taking my cats to Cape Vet for more than 20 years and have always been satisfied with their caring professionalism. Luna sees Dr. Terry, and Lila sees Dr. Greenbaum. We have been very pleased with both.Claudia R.Claudia R. ★★★★☆ Very good service. Love the vets and techs!!Andrea B.Andrea B. ★★★★☆ The staff is professional and personable. They handle my pets well and are able to explain everything the pets need very clearly. I have been taking my pets here for 6 years.Communication issues have arisen during COVID, such as not being informed of how expensive some not-quite-essential things would be before they were done, which resulted in a shocking bill that I was required to pay on the spot with no way to set up payments. I was also informed that my pet's vaccinations were due today, so we scheduled an appointment. They were not actually due for 5 more months, so we wasted a trip there. HOWEVER, I truly believe the lapses in communication during COVID were because of the general chaos & stress as well as the fact that owners couldn't be in exam rooms with their pets. Things have gone back to normal, though, so I am optimistic that everything will get back to running smoothly soon.Jen G.Jen G. ★★★★☆ I’ve been with this vet for quite some time. My first veterinarian there was the best, had a lot of experience and just knew her stuff. Ever since they moved to their new location in Knightville it’s been a little different. Still very professional and my vet is consistent and cares about my pup but there was something endearing about their old, scrappier location.----js_loader
