CHVM is the first facility of its kind to serve the veterinary referral community of Connecticut.

We opened a second 5,000 sf facility in nearby Guilford and are currently expanding our North Haven hospital.
Our specialty departments include internal medicine, critical care, cardiology, radiology, surgery, behavior, dermatology, exotics, anesthesia, medical oncology, ophthalmology, interventional radiology and physical rehabilitation. Much of the referral community is affluent and motivated to seek specialty veterinary care. Our caseload continues to grow exponentially since opening.
CHVM is located minutes from New Haven and Yale University, on the beautiful shoreline of Connecticut with open access to the Long Island Sound, hiking, skiing, and numerous outdoor activities. Several large concert venues are also nearby.
