Broad River Animal Hospital has been providing the highest quality veterinary care to the pets of Fairfield County for over 35 years. Our four doctors have almost 100 years of experience and are assisted by a team of compassionate professionals that provide exceptional care and highly personalized attention in a stress-free environment for your pet. We understand the special role your pet plays in your family and are dedicated to partnering with you in your pet's health care; we care for your pet as if it were our own. We are a full-service hospital that provides all of your pet's health care needs, including Wellness and preventive care, internal medicine, surgery including laser surgery, dentistry including digital dental radiology, complete diagnostics including laboratory, ultrasound, endoscopy & digital radiology, emergency care, and boarding.
Broad River Animal Hospital is locally owned and operated by veterinarians, not a corporation, and is a proud member of the prestigious American Animal Hospital Association. Fewer than fifteen percent of all pet hospitals in the country meet the Association's rigorous standards; this membership is your assurance of quality and professionalism in every aspect of your pet's health care.
Broad River Animal Hospital is also the only American Association of Feline Practitioners designated Cat-Friendly Practice in Norwalk, Connecticut. Cats are unique from dogs and have distinct medical and behavioral needs. Our practice has fulfilled the Cat-Friendly Practice requirements which address the unique needs of cats.
Effective communication with clients is our top priority. We are available by appointment and by phone to discuss your pet's care at any time. Our doctors and staff go the extra mile to ensure that your pet receives the highest quality medical and surgical care available, that your pet's health care recommendations are explained in a way that you can understand, and that all of your questions and concerns are addressed.
Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated and considered an important part of maintaining our standard of quality. Thank you for taking the time to read about our hospital and the services we offer. We will continually update our website to keep you informed of current pet news and information such as emerging diseases and pet food recalls. Our website also contains forms to assist your visit to our hospital and boarding facility and a Pet Health Library with extensive pet health care information. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make our website a more useful resource for your pet's total health care.
We ask you to "Like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. We will keep you updated on Broad River Animal Hospital news and general pet and veterinary news including pet food recalls. We also encourage you to post and share photos and stories about your pets with us on Facebook and Twitter.
***We are continuing to follow the CDC and AVMA guidelines provided to us, to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and clients alike.
We are still accepting patients both established and new. We ask everyone to call ahead for any needs including appointments, medications, and food. Please call from the parking lot when here and a staff member will be out to assist you wearing a mask. Rest assured that we are washing our hands between each interaction with clients and pets.
When scheduling appointments the receptionist will email you a link to our website forms to go over a few questions that the doctor will need to know ahead of time. It is very important to have the forms submitted before your appointment time. We will also ask for a credit card number to put on file for the appointment as we are only accepting them over the phone. We are not accepting cash or checks at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If we are doing a procedure or an appointment that requires paperwork, we will email the paperwork to you and ask that you email the signed forms back to us at email@example.com or faxed back to 203-846-4364. If you do not see an email, please check your spam folder before calling the office.
We ask that our clients call us from the parking lot when here for appointments. We have implemented spot numbers to make things run smoother for all. The receptionist will ask for the proper phone number to call once the examination has been done.
For any canine appointments, we will retrieve your pet with our own slip leads (washed after every use) and ask that you un-clip your leashes.
For any feline appointments, we will retrieve your pet from your vehicle. We do ask that you disinfect the carrier before coming to the office. We will then bring the patient inside to be examined and the attending Doctor will call with all exam findings. Any other questions or concerns may be discussed at that time. Once the appointment/phone call is through, the assistant/technicians will bring your pet back to you and the receptionist will email your paid invoice along with any certificates or paperwork you will need.
