Dogs of all shapes and sizes

For most of our canine patients, any trip out of the house is an exciting one! Animal Hospital in Fairfield's team is here to embrace your pet. Whether your canine companion finds their time here exciting or frightening, we are want to provide a pleasant experience.

Because our canine patients have such a keen sense of smell, they often like to explore, but we ask that you always keep your pet on a short leash, for everyone's safety. If you forgot yours at home, please ask our receptionist for one of ours.

Our dog patients have their own kennel room, away from the activity of the hospital. Please feel free to bring in any toys, blankets, or bedding that your pet finds comforting. We will gladly keep these items with your pet for the extent of their visit.

‚ÄčThere is a large scale in the dog waiting room that we will use at every visit, and you are also welcome to drop by anytime to monitor your pet's weight.
