Team Picture of VCA Bristol Animal Hospital

Our Team

Our doctors and staff have been serving the Bristol, Burlington, Plymouth, Terryville, Torrington, and Winsted  communities for over 35 years. We have grown to a full-service hospital providing medical care, boarding, and grooming to our clients and patients. We are available seven days a week, with two late nights and Sunday hours.

Local Medical Issues

There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health and that require your attention over the entire year. For example, there's heartworm, which can affect both cats and dogs. Since it's transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, it's a serious cause for concern. As winter temperatures do not get cold enough here to kill mosquito eggs, it's a year-round risk.

Likewise is for the potential for flea and tick infestation, or intestinal parasites, each of which poses a problem in any season. And finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and scaly skin.
