Our History

Our practice was started in 1937 by Dr. Philip Gerlach. During those years, Branford was still a predominantly rural community, and most of Dr. Gerlach’s work involved helping farm animals.

The practice continued to grow and changed ownership through the years until Dr. Gavaletz joined in 2009. Our original building was in use from 1937 until 2018.

In July 2018 we opened our doors to our new hospital. The new state-of-the-art facility helps us better accommodate our clients and their pets.

Today our hospital mainly services canine and feline patients. Our clients include residents of Branford, North Branford, East Haven, New Haven, Guilford, and Madison.
