Our Background

Our facility has been a fixture along the Connecticut coastline since 1954. The Clinton area has come to trust our knowledge and expertise, allowing us to work on their beloved pets in both good and trying times.

More recently, the community has also seen change and growth, thanks to the passion of our owners— Lauren Price, VMD and Andrew Ciok, VMD. When the owners and the primary veterinarians are one and the same, you tend to get a more passionate response to your pet’s needs.

Our Staff

You can learn more about Dr. Price and Dr. Ciok on our Veterinarians & Staff page. There, you can also read more about the rest of the staff ready to care for your dog, cat, or pocket pet. From groomer and office staff to vet techs, we have assembled a skilled and experienced group, and we encourage you to get to know them better.

Our Process

We want your pet care to be a convenience in your life, not a challenge. So we take a number of payment options, including CareCredit. We also have an easy-to-use online form to fill out if it’s your first visit.

We’ll never push a service on you, but we will let you know about economical wellness plans and how preventive medicine often prevents larger bills later.

Our Facility

Advanced diagnostic equipment, an onsite pharmacy, an in-house lab, surgical suites... We truly do have everything you need under one roof. Or as your pup might say: Everything you need under one woof.

Our office is open during the following times:

  • Monday – Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Appointments begin at 8:30 a.m.)
  • Saturday: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Appointments begin at 9 a.m.)

If you would like to book an appointment or have questions, please call (860) 669-5721. Our fax number is (860) 669-5824.
