Veterinary care in Vernon, CT

Town and Country Veterinary Associates is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing affordable, comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care to Vernon, Manchester, South Windsor, Tolland and all surrounding communities.

Drs. Gayle Block and Maxine Borghesi opened Town and Country Veterinary Associates in January, 1992 after an exhaustive search of the area for the right location, settling on Vernon.  From the beginning, their plan was to only grow to a three veterinarian practice so they could always be intimately involved with each case. That allowed them to form strong bonds with their clients and patients over the years.

Dr. Borghesi is no longer practicing, however, Dr. Gayle Block, the practice owner and long time Tolland County resident, has been a veterinarian for over 25 years. She sees dogs and cats as well as other small animals (bunnies, hamsters, etc.). Dr. Emily Melendez also sees patients full time and Dr. Amy Anderson is here two days a week.

We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. Our facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, in-house x-ray capabilities, and a closely supervised hospitalization area. We also do not hesitate to work closely with area specialists when more involved procedures are required.

At Town and Country Veterinary Associates, we strive to offer not only sound advice but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
