Who do you call when it’s a weekend or late night and you have an emergency with your dog or cat, but your primary care vet is closed? Who does your vet call when your furry family member needs help beyond routine care?
Newtown Veterinary Specialists (NVS) at 52 Church Hill Road in Newtown, Connecticut is scheduled to open for business May 9 and will remain open 24/7/365.
“We always have qualified medical staff around the clock to handle animal emergencies and to care for dogs and cats needing critical care,” said Newtown Veterinary Specialists President and CEO Scott Schifilliti.
“Opening this new facility is a dream come true,” added Chief Medical Officer Debra Weisman, DVM, a small-animal surgeon whose specialties include gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, oncologic surgery, and pain management. “We work collaboratively with primary care veterinarians throughout Fairfield, Litchfield and Putnam counties, and we are also a first-line resource for pet owners when their family veterinarian is not available when an emergency occurs,” Weisman added.
