Expansion and Evolution
As the needs of our community – including our referring veterinarians – have expanded, so have our capabilities, our facility, and our team. We take a strategic approach to growth, which means enhancing our state-of-the-art facility, hiring the most qualified, dedicated team members at every level, and expanding our specialty offerings to provide the most advanced veterinary care to pets across Vermont and beyond. 

But we haven’t just grown our physical footprint or our staff numbers. We’ve done so with a passion for pets at the heart of it. The result is a team of exceptionally competent, credentialed animal health professionals, many of whom have been with us for more than a decade. Our team is at the core of our growth, and our commitment to them is as strong as theirs is to your patients. 
Qualified, Committed, Passionate

Our pledge to animal health goes far beyond the technical expertise you can count on when referring your patients to us. Our personalized care and passion for our patients sets us apart. When your patients are here, we care for them as if they were our own – and we have the experience to ensure they get the best possible treatment.  
From administrative office to emergency room floor, our team is comprised of people with extensive training and experience in the veterinary field, which makes us more effective and efficient.
