Our mission is to provide the highest quality veterinary care to your pets, treating your family members as if they were our own. We understand the deep bond between animals and their people, and strive to reach the highest standard of excellence in their care.
We will reach our goal through high quality medical and surgical care, informative decision making, equitable pricing, extended business hours, after hour emergency care, and by offering many unique services. Our unique services include a canine reproduction and genetics center, avian and exotics medicine, both large and small animal mobile office visits through our affiliate, Coastal Valley Veterinary Services, grooming, and educational seminars on common concerns for your pets. Our staff are all deeply devoted to the welfare of animals and have varied and extensive experience in veterinary care (although, despite the picture, we don't see tigers).
We are also dedicated to environmental awareness and make every effort to decrease our "carbon footprint". As such, we are a "paperless" practice, utilizing computer technology to maintain and store records, laboratory reports, etc. with daily backup for safety as well as enhanced programming to ensure security and privacy of confidential records. Our x-ray technology is based on computer digital radiography to eliminate the need for x-ray film, darkroom chemicals, and processing machinery. We are committed to recycling any waste paper that is generated, as well as aluminum, tin, and other recyclable materials. In addition, we are exploring the viability of solar panels for electrical energy and other energy saving techniques for our hospital.
We are a proud member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), and the Connecticut Farm Bureau.
