We recently moved to the area and purchased a puppy that we brought to this Vet a few months back for an initial checkup. During this checkup we met with Dr. Janice Duffy and informed her that our puppy had been flapping his ears and scratching at them which appeared to us to be a sign of discomfort. She shrugged off our claim and took a quick look in his ears before saying that he's fine and its normal for puppies. A few months later, he has continued to flap his ears and scratch at them so we brought him back to get him re-examined and a different doctor informed us that he has 2 ear infections. There is no way that these infections weren't developing in his ears when she first saw him and he has now been suffering for 3 months undiagnosed. I recommend anyone who cares for their pet to avoid this place at all costs due to the incompetence they display and lack of willingness to actually do their job to care about the well being and health of pets that walk through their door.

I have been using Dr. Janice Duffy for a few years now. My dog was sick on Christmas eve last year and they fit her in last minute and made sure she was feeling better before sending her home that night. They even called a couple days later to check in on her progress and make sure she was back to her normal self. I now take my kitten there as well and couldn't be happier. I have never owned a cat before and she made sure to explain everything to me while also answering any of my questions. I have now gotten my entire extended family to also take their animals there! They have the sweetest staff and truly care about the animals. I love how welcoming everyone is. I couldn't ask for a better vet hospital for my girls. Thanks Dr. Duffy and staff!!

I have been coming to Norwalk Veterinary Hospital for the past three years. They always take great care of my cat and dog. Whether it’s for a routine shot or checkin, or more intensive care, the service is always top notch.

This past Saturday I was at a dog show a couple of exits away when my dog was suffering from a bee sting on his toe. His toe was swollen and he was limping in pain. He was scheduled to be in Westminster Dog show the following day, Sunday. Not being a patient or even a resident of Ct, Norwalk Vet Hospital took him in and cared for him as if he was associated with them. I thank everyone involved for their professional care and responsiveness to my Logan’s needs. Thanks to them he was able to participate in the Westminster Show and looked great in the ring. Thank you so very much for all you did for us.

Finding a reputable/ educated vet for your pet could be nearly impossible these days. You need to find a vet whom is trustful and educated on your pet- who honestly cares about your animal. We ended up at Norwalk Veterinary Hospital due to a very unfortunate situation, but the staff and doctors were so amazing and helpful! You could tell they knew what they were doing, cared about both the client and animal and were very supportive/ comforting. Even with the pandemic staff members still managed to have clear direct communication with us as the client. I highly recommend NVH

Dr. Alistair Chapnick could not have been more professional, caring and honest when treating our 15+ year old Rottsky, Tito, at the end of his life. I was extremely pleased with the service and treatment rendered to our canine. Thank you, Alistair, staff and others at Norwalk Vet Hospital.

We have been clients of Norwalk Vet for over thirty years. They are wonderful, professional doctors and the support staff is top notch. We wouldn’t take our pets anywhere else.

From one who has both bred & shown dogs and worked for several other Veterinary Hospitals... Dr Charles Duffy is in a league of his own & absolutely one of the best from being a keen diagnostician to about the most kind, caring human you could meet, I endorse 1000%

I got a rescue kitten a week and a half ago and needed to find a Vet in my area for a checkup. The reviews online for Norwalk Vet Hospital were great so I trusted them. My kitty ended up coming down with a bad cold so I needed him to be seen even more (which the woman at the front desk kindly got me in sooner). However, when I arrived, I not only had to wait 30 minutes before the vet came to my car to get my cat, I was given no opportunity to speak or ask questions. It seemed like everyone was in a rush and I didn’t get a chance to explain the situation. It was maybe 5 minutes before the Vet came back out to talk to me and basically tell me the symptoms I shared weren’t really happening (after spending that short of time with my cat how can he even be sure). He cut me off and barely let me talk with him about what I was observing at home and how worried I was. I was charged $135 for a 5 minute visit and one that didn’t calm my nerves about my kitten’s health at that. In my opinion, the only good part about this vet is the women at the front desk. If you’re a first time pet owner or have a rescue, I would suggest going somewhere where they genuinely care for your animals and spend more than 5 minutes with them.

I brought kongs for the dogs to have every day while they were there. They gave them the kongs once and that was it, dogs smelled horrible when they left and they are still traumatized from the experience

I love this office and my animals mean the world to me. They see Dr.Lisa Majors who is wonderful, compassionate, caring and listens to all my questions. I wouldn’t trust my animals with anyone else even through the difficult times of Covid. I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for exceptional care. And you can see just how happy the staff is to see the animals. I would never go anywhere else with my animals except the emergency vet when they are not open. I have helped people with animal care for many years so I have a bit more knowledge of local vets. I also had a very bad experience with a local vet and the biggest part of their slogan is how affordable they are. Norwalk vet is affordable but the main slogan for them is care compassion and a excellent staff .

From beginning to end it was a pleasant experience. We have a 9 yr old lab who needed a neuter and were so glad we chose this vet to perform surgery. We have 3 dogs and will definitely be going there for all their needs. Thank you so much Norwalk Vet Hospital team!

3 months after having his teeth removed, then getting long stitch ends removed days later (after begging for an appointment), our dog is still going insane and we are told to just keep an eye on it????

The employees are so kind, my cats are very relaxed after their day of boarding. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the facilities are clean from what I've seen in their front office. I would definitely recommend this for boarding of any length of time.

We moved from NYC a few months ago and we were looking for a reliable veterinarian. After trying a couple of other local vets we were lucky to meet Dr. Charles Duffy; very professional, knowledgable and trustworthy. We highly recommend Norwalk Veterinary Hospital!

Some of the best Dr's Inhave ever had the pleasure of meeting. DR. Janice Duffy & DR. Charles Duffy I am forever indebted to you and your staff. You truly make a difference. You saved not only the life of PAPI you also in a sense saved US. I have a bond with him that cannot be explained in words. He & I truly are 1. You are #1 in my book. I will HIGHLY recommend you to anyone & everyone I ever meet.

As much as I love Dr Duffy with my dogs, the boarding house is not good. I picked up my dog today from the boarding house and after being away for 4 days, he’s covered in pee as if he’d been laying it and as if other dogs had peed on him with yellow stains all over his coat, and his paws are covered in poop along with his bottom. I’m disgusted from the smell coming off him especially since I gave him a bath before we left and very disappointed in this place right now. Will continue to take him to the vet, but probably not the boarding house again.

Honest and reasonable. I just changed vets to Norwalk Veterinary Hospital. I always felt my previous vet was trying to upsell me on everything. They quoted $1300 for a procedure that NVH did for $700. NVH are also friendly and helpful. Very happy with them.

I'm a Fairfield girl, but go to Norwalk Veterinary hospital, because my fur babies deserve the Best!!! Dr. Charles Duffy & his wife Dr. Janice Duffy have a fantastic staff as well as other wonderful Vets available for all your needs. .

The staff here truly cares about the animals and does what is needed to bring them back to health while working with you and making sure you are comfortable as well. They took my Chihuahua in after an accident and performed a surgery that no other hospital would do on her, next day, and for a more than reasonable price considering the situation. I can't thank them enough.
