Abbey is alive today thanks to Dr. Guerino's knowledge of rare diseases. At ten weeks her ears becamed inflammed and she couldn't walk. She was diagnosed with a rare puppy disease - Puppy Strangles. She spent weekdays at VCA with the wonderful staff & evenings at home. She had to be carried & held up to do her business & to eat. Eight months later she was cured. We are indebted to Dr. Guerino & his staff.

It doesn't get any better than this

-Carol and Bob from Eliot, ME
Pet Name: Clifford

As a client for over 15 years, it has amazed me at how flexible everyone is when it comes to scheduling appointments. Our "family" consists of seven cats and three dogs. There have been numerous times when one of cats or dogs needs to see a vet due to an unexpected illness. Every time our animals need an unscheduled appointment, one is given. Depending on the type of illness being dealt with, the vets may be able to offer more than one option in treatment. I find that every one who works at VCA Animal Medical Center truly likes animals and greets them in a friendly manner when we come for a visit. When we have traveled on vacation, we have been able to hire staff from VCA Animal Medical Center to take care of our animals in our home. We have the assurance of trustworthy people in our homes, and they are likely to spot a medical problem should one arise.

-Rod, Audrey and Andrew Bryce from Dover, NH
Pet Name: Goldie

Dear Dr. Bouras: We wish to thank you and all of your staff most sincerely for all of your kindness to Goldie as we gave her final rest. A rest that she probably wanted but could not share. We thank you also for your empathy and patience yesterday with us as we grappled with the inevitable. It was a hard choice but the right one.

Barley & Ellie

-The Ripper Family from Portsmouth, NH
Pet Name: Barley & Ellie

I have been consistently impressed with the level of care that all the of doctors and technicians provide at VCA. While we had our kitty Barley, everyone was very attentive and supportive. This meant a great deal to us, especially when were faced with the hard decision of letting him go. Now we have our sweet girl, Ellie. She got really sick over the weekend, and VCA made time to see her even though she was a new patient. Dr. Guerino and Diana were wonderful with her yesterday. She was especially stressed and they were very patient and gentle with her. We are so grateful that she is feeling better.

WOW! So impressed!

-Diane and Andrew Harmon from Kittery Point, ME
Pet Name: Baby

We are new to the area and it's quite a task to find new "favorites." After trying a few places, we have finally found our girl Baby's veterinarian. Dr. Guerino is pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgeable. His assistant Mike M. was so good with our Boxer and his love of animals was obvious. The women answering the phone and at the front desk are SO PLEASANT! Highly recommend this practice!!

We love Dr. Guerrino & Staff

-Savannah from Dover, NH
Pet Name: Savannah

Hi, I'm Savannah. I just turned one back in January and my parents started bringing me to the VCA just after I was born. I've seen a lot of Dr's and their staff during my first year (Proud Care Club Member) and they've taken such good care of me. I recently got sick (my first time) and my visit to the VCA made me a little scared (Dr's had to touch my ouchies.). The team of dr's and their staff did everything they could to make me comfortable and assure my parents that I'd be okay. (Mom & Dad were pretty nervous) My mom said she's been coming here for years and Dr. Guerino always took such good care of me and mom's other fur babies. I'm finally feeling better and it's all because of the good care I received while here at the VCA. Being able to trust your doctor and their team is very important when finding a place to care for your loved ones! We recommend VCA Portsmouth without reserve! Savannah, Jennifer & Jonathan
