Our main building is functioning primarily as an emergency clinic. Wellness appointments can be scheduled at our Corner Clinic for new puppy/kitten initial vaccine series, adult dogs & cats requiring booster vaccines, and a limited scope of minor health concerns.
  • Remote healthcare service is available through the TeleVet mobile app so you may send a virtual consultation request to us whenever your pet is sick or has a minor injury. (As always, please call our 24-hour emergency line – 860 646 6134 – if your pet has an urgent medical condition such as trouble breathing, serious injuries, or other imminently life-threatening concerns.)
