  • "Dr Maynard and Karen are the best! They are like vets used to be--caring about the pet first and not trying to run up the bill. They are both always very kind and helpful. Wish they were our vet year round! You won't be disappointed!"

  • "Awesome staff make it much easier dealing with injured or ailing pets - the staff are the most loving caring people on the planet and I greatly value their service through the years."
  • "The Homeport Veterinary Practice is a great caring Practice. We have brought our multiple Newfoundland's for years and could not be happier with the care and follow up regarding shots and surgical operations. We have had dogs neutered and spayed at the practice, as well as elder care which has always been outstanding. Would most definitely highly recommend this practice above all others."
  • "Excellent, Compassionate vet service for your loving pet. Willing to spend time with you and your pet. Very understanding during difficult times, such as serious illness. Simply the best."
  • "Experience, expertise, and genuine caring make this vet practice the best in the area, and I've been to them all. I had a German Shepherd who could be hard to handle at times (especially in a waiting room filled with other dogs and cats), and they treated it like it was no big deal, unlike the nasty looks and comments I got from every other vet practice. When he got cancer, they were not only compassionate, but practical and honest about his treatment, saving me from throwing away thousands of dollars to fight a losing battle."
  • "We have brought our pets both dogs and cats over the years to Dr. Joe and we love this practice. The person who rounds up the practice for Dr. Joe is Karen who manages it all for him. Anytime you call she is there to help figure out a plan either for appointments or just walking you through what you may need for your pets."
  • "Have brought our pets here for many years. Margaret and I do not hesitate in recommending Homeport to newcomers in the area. Dr. Joe and Karen are the best!!!"
