24-hour emergency vet services

After-hours emergency vet services are
available to all of our current clients*.

In the event that you have a pet emergency, our doctors are just a phone call away.

Effective August 1, there will be no small animal on-call services between 10pm and 6am.

If you are a current HVC client and you have an emergency, call (207) 453-7387 and our answering service will page the doctor on call.


*Current means that a Hometown veterinarian has examined your pet within the last 12 months. If you are NOT a current Hometown Veterinary Care client, please contact: Brewer Emergency (989-6267) or Lewiston Emergency (777-1110).

"Quality care, expertise, friendliness, and compassion are some of the top reasons I am a regular client and fan of Hometown Veterinary Care. Dr. Matt Townsend's attention to detail and wonderful “bedside manner” with my cats made it a no-brainer for me to follow him from another vet clinic to Fairfield when he started his own business. My cats are like children to me, and I am not comfortable entrusting their care to just anybody. Dr. Matt and his team of vets, supported by a group of caring vet techs, provide excellent care and guidance.”
