Services

Fern             As one of Fairfield’s premier animal hospitals, we offer a wide range of veterinary health care services designed to serve your companion well throughout  his or her lifetime, from puppy- or kitten-hood through the senior years.  We stress the importance of an annual physical examination — it is through comprehensive check-ups and preventive care that we can help alleviate serious health problems as your pets age and maximize their enjoyment of life.
