Branford Veterinary Hospital is looking to add a fifth veterinarian to our amazing team. Our new facility opened 5 short years ago and our employees and clients absolutely love it! Our support staff is handpicked to be gentle, supportive, and caring. The result is a fun, engaging workday full of upbeat positive attitudes.
Our veterinarians range from seven to twenty years of experience and bring collaboration, support, and mentoring to the table. We have three CVT’s on staff and utilize Fear Free techniques and training. Our in house lab includes an Abaxis HM5 hematology unit and two VS5 blood chemistry machines. We utilize a Rayence digital radiology unit with Senecal X-ray machine, iM3 high speed dental drill, and Claruis handheld ultrasound unit. In addition there are 3 anesthesia machines in use, 2 digital monitors, central oxygen, Avimark software, glass door runs, and much more.
Branford Veterinary Hospital is a full service practice offering preventive care, hospital care, surgery, and dentistry. The option to see basic exotic animal cases is available. We serve our community by working with a local feline rescue group, municipal animal control, and 2 police dogs. We utilize traveling specialists in surgery and radiology when appropriate and refer to four local specialty hospitals when needed.
We offer a base salary plus production. Benefits include paid vacation time, Gold Level health insurance, dental plan, license and membership dues, employee pet discount, and professional liability insurance. Our vendor reps provide occasional lunch & learn opportunities, product samples, and other various gifts. After 1 year we further offer continuing education stipend and retirement plan with 3% salary matching.
Branford Veterinary Hospital is a female co-owned locally rooted 85 year old practice. We are NOT corporate owned, managed, or otherwise influenced. Our greatest strength is truly our work culture. We strongly believe in supporting all our employees, and encourage their personal and professional growth. While many corporate practices struggle with staff turnover and burn out, we’re proud to say that many of our employees have been with us for 5 years or longer. All of our CVT’s gained the majority of their hours, experience, studied and passed their exam with our practice (and we’re hoping to add 2 more soon). We regularly send staff to local CE events, and sent 2 employees to VMAX in Orlando this year. We utilize and empower our team to their fullest potential, and the result is confident, capable, enthusiastic nurses and assistants. Come see how our work culture can reduce your work day stress and allow you to enjoy a better work-life balance.

Branford is a gorgeous Connecticut shoreline community with a rich agricultural past and historic Colonial flare. The downtown green area bustles with shops and restaurants, and the shoreline boasts the treasured Thimble Islands. Our clients tend to be well educated and consider their pets to be members of the family. Our practice was founded in 1937 and continues today serving companion animals, and occasional exotics.
