Through good as well as difficult times we know we will receive the best and most heartfelt/thoughtful care by all. Ultimately, we do have to admit Kathy's greeting (whether on the phone or in person) always reassures us that whether it's a routine visit or emergency she will be there for support and understands that Jaxson and Mongo are special members of our family. So, thanks to all of you at the Clinic, and most especially to you, Kathy. The Bath-Brunswick Veterinary Associates team is certainly a special pot of gold!nancy C.nancy C. ★★★★★ Recently , I took my cat, Sheere Khan to Dr Kevin Chretian.

The staff are knowledgeable, professional, and caring! My veterinarian is Dr. Miranda Smith. She is, by far, the best vet I have ever known!

We’re grateful for their care for Lou!Sarah A.Sarah A. ★★★★★ The best in town. Only place I trust with my petsJason N.Jason N. ★★★★★ This is the only vet facility I would use.

They really go above and beyond to make sure you're taken care of when you're busy with a sick pet. The vet has been very accommodating getting me into emergency visits when we needed themWilliam N.William N. ★★★★★ Staffed with thorough and very caring people.Will K.Will K. ★★★★★ I transferred to Bath-Brunswick vets after my previous vet office was so rude as to send a text message to cancel an appointment I had made 3 months earlier. I was appalled at the lack of consideration -- not even a phone call to explain why and offer me another appointment. I'm very glad I made the change! My new vet, Dr. Smith, is considerably more thorough than my previous vet. For example, she discovered that my dog had never been vaccinated against leptospirosis - not even at the vet I was using before I moved to this area. Instead of waiting until their office was open, Dr. Smith even called me on the weekend to discus my dog's test results! The techs I have met, (and I've met quite a few), have all been lovely, as have all the office staff. I couldn't be happier!Susanne R.Susanne R. ★★★★★ The whole team at BBVA is great - doctors, techs, front desk crew always are helpful, friendly, and caring. Nothing phases them and I have challenging pets! It was really hard during COVID to not be able to go in with the “patients” for visits but they made the best of it and still provided excellent care. Now, we are all together again and everybody, Bjorn, Ulla, Awesomeface, Zooey, Seymour and me (the human), is happier and thanks to BBVA very healthy.Jill J.Jill J. ★★★★★ We’re new to Brunswick so have been researching vets. Bath-Brunswick vet has many services and the staff is efficient and so friendly !!Janet M.Janet M. ★★★★★ They take great care of MissyWilliam C.William C. ★★★★★ We have been taking our pets (kids) there for many years. IMHO they are the best.James M.James M. ★★★★★ Amazing workDorothy S.Dorothy S. ★★★★★ We have been coming B-B Veterinary since we moved to Maine 5 years ago. And even though we've moved an hour away, we still use them. Dr. Chrishen is our favorite, so personable and friendly but they are all great vets!Amber P.Amber P. ★★★★★ We boarded our pup there last summer and the staff were great! Our little girl was very happy and happy well taken care of.Josh E.Josh E. ★★★★★ The team, especially Dr. Magenis is always wonderful to my chihuahua Chili Dog. Although Chili Dog hates going to the vet, I am confident in every visit that we will be shown compassion and receive quality care. Bath-Brunswick Veterinary Associates goes over the top for Chili Dog!Kay W.Kay W. ★★★★★ This was Laci's first visit since moving to Maine. Everything went very smoothly from the moment I called to get her first visit scheduled. Very pleasant staff and wonderful curbside service. I feel very confident about the future of Laci's care hereRhonda Lake and Marc D.Rhonda Lake and Marc D. ★★★★★ Excellent people work here!Cheryl H.Cheryl H. ★★★★★ Fantastic service, been going her for years. Dr. Chretien is the best, my dogs seem to love him!Clear communication and billing. No surprises. Wouldn't take my doggos anywhere else!D.R. S.D.R. S. ★★★★★ The staff there was very informative and pleasant to me!Ellen A.Ellen A. ★★★★★ I need to revise this review because soon after leaving the review below, Dr. Magenis pretty much saved my dogs life. She, along with the medical surgeons and staff in Portland, acted swiftly to have a 7.5 x 10.5 mass removed from my dog's liver. Dr. Magenis was able to secure a spot for Max in Portland Emergency Hospital and get him right in for care. I'm so grateful to Dr. Magenis and her staff.My dog has been a patient of Dr. Magenis since moving to Maine one year ago. He's had some minor/senior liver issues and Dr. Magenis has been very communicative and helpful with his treatments.COVID has changed the way we do business and it's very upsetting for me (and most dog owners) not to be able to go into the office with dogs/cats. Dr. Magenis makes you feel better and she takes the time to chat with you and ensures she answers your questions.I've never seen the inside of this establishment because of COVID and I'm not pleased about that but I am happy with the doctor and staff. I do recommend their services.Susan C.Susan C. ★★★★★ Such a wonderful practice in every way! We love every doctor, tech, and staff member here, both on the veterinary side as well as boarding/grooming side. We will never take our three “fur kids” anywhere else: BBVA is the gold standard for outstanding pet care in Midcoast Maine!Alex S.Alex S. ★★★★★ Wonderful staff! Affordable!Tara M.Tara M. ★★★★★ We've been with this practice for almost 4 years now and they have been absolutely wonderful. Kind, efficient, very competent, great communicators, and have given our three pets excellent care. I would recommend them, particularly Dr. Magenis, to anyone.Moriah F.Moriah F. ★★★★★ Always great, we love themJoanne M.Joanne M. ★★★★★ We had to put our dog down. They were kind and compassionate and honored our wishes. Love them.Amy B.Amy B. ★★★★★ The whole staff is awesome. I reccomend listen to your animals. How do I know their awesome?

Great place. We have taken our pets and working police dogs there for 25 years.

Ian Alexander

This is the most wonderful place to take a pet for care. The staff is caring and straightforward when it comes to treating your dog or cat. Also the kennel is a great place to board your pet.

Steve Everts

Angela and Dr Smith went above and beyond recently to help with the paperwork and medical checks for our daughter’s dog before the dog flew from Boston to Heathrow. The Customs paperwork is tricky and Dr Smith never hesitated to contact the Starwood Animal Transport firm to confirm that everything was on track. Our family appreciates the care and professionalism of the staff. Thank you so very much.

Nancy J Hynes

I want to give a huge shout out to the entire staff that has taken care of my Cooper over the past 16 years. I am sad beyond words that he is gone. I would especially like to thank Miranda Smith for being there in the end. You were very comforting and professional and I knew you really cared!

Linda J Raymond

We’ve been going here for four years with our dog. Staff is very friendly. Doc always takes the time to answer any questions and does a great job with our unique breed. Highly recommend.

Neesha Hudson

Wonderful group of caring professionals. Grooming is top notch!
