We offer a large waiting area with complimentary coffee and tea.  We have separate waiting areas for cats and dogs and a fantastic child play area.

 

Exam Rooms

We have five exam rooms, four have hydraulic lift exam tables.  Our exam rooms have chair and bench seating for pet owners.  A technician helps hold your pet on the exam table during the doctors physical examination.  This allows your pet to see you and adds to his/her comfort level.  One of our exam rooms is dedicated to our feline patients.  This room is kept free of dogs and we utilize cat friendly techniques to ensure our feline patients are as relaxed as possible.

Pharmacy 

The pharmacy is located behind the exam rooms.  It allows us to prepare your pets medications, and create a treatment plan in order to thoroughly explain when and how to give the medication while you are still in the exam room.  We will demonstrate how to apply ear, eye, and other topical medications to ensure proper application.  
We carry a large variety of medications in our hospital and other products are available through our online store Vets First Choice

Treatment Area
 
We have a five exam table treatment area with direct visualization to our intensive care area and surgical suite.  This work area allows the technicians to closely monitor hospitalized patients and recovering surgical patients.  This large area is the medical work center of our facility.  We take blood samples for laboratory tests in this area.  We also place pets on intravenous fluids and prepare them for surgery at these stations.

Radiology

We have a Cuattro digital radiography system, allowing us to take radiographs with superior resolution.  Digital radiography allows us to see more than traditional radiographs and to send the images to board certified radiologists for review as needed.  We also send owners home with digital copies of their pets radiographs.

Surgery Suite

We have a large surgical suite with positive pressure ventilation, which helps to reduce infection rates.  All of our anesthetized patients are monitored continuously by a certified veterinary technician during surgery and recovery.  We use a Bair Hugger patient warmer for all patients to maintain adequate body temperature.  All patients receive intravenous fluid therapy, and are monitored with Cardell blood pressure and pulse oximeter monitors.  Follow this link to learn more about Surgery and Anesthesia at Litchfield Veterinary Hospital.Litchfield Veterinary Hospital - Litchfield, CT - Surgical Suite

Comfort Room

We understand that end of life decisions can be hard for most people.  We realize it may be difficult to be in an exam room where you often brought your pet for treatment and care.  For this reason we offer a comfort room for you to sit with your pet when you are faced with end of life choices.  With more natural lighting and a home like atmosphere, our comfort room will allow you and your pet to be together in a relaxed environment.


Cat Ward

We have a separate cat ward that is quiet and relaxing for our feline patients.  Our specialized cat condos offer a pass through door, adding additional space.  A perch is provided for each patient, allowing them to climb or go under for comfort.  We also provide Pet Tunes music therapy as another Cat Friendly approach.
