Introducing our Medical Director, Forrest I Townsend III, DVM, DACVS

To our referring partners:

At New England Animal Medical Center (NEAMC) we believe that a compassionate, collaborative approach creates the best outcome for patients and clients. By working as an extension of your doctors and care team, our staff of board-certified specialists, emergency/urgent care veterinarians, technicians, and support staff develop treatment plans for your patients to meet the needs of their families.

We understand the human-animal bond and know the stress and emotional nature of emergency and specialty medicine. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, staffing shortages, construction, and increased caseload - our team continues to provide exceptional care to every single patient that comes through our doors. To enhance that effort, we are dedicated to providing the same level of service and compassion to you – our loyal referring partners. As we navigate these unprecedented times, we will continue to do our best to care for as many patients as best we can.

We appreciate your support and patience as we have had staffing challenges throughout this past summer. Over the next few months, we expect to improve our coverage and maintain reliable service availability as we hire and train new team members. In addition to the recent renovations you may have seen in the client-facing portion of our hospital, we are expanding and renovating the clinical space to accommodate more doctors and more patients. We look forward to sharing additional updates with your team in the coming months.

I welcome you to reach out with any questions or concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you should require additional support or if there is a case or protocol you wish to discuss. Thank you for your time, your partnership, and your continued support. We are grateful for your dedication to your patients, your time, and your partnership.

Whether it is updating you about our service availability, introducing a new doctor or specialist, or streamlining a referral—our team is here for you.
