Dr. Anna Crosby and Stephen Crosby, CVT, VTS
They converted the 1900 turn-of-the-century antique building into a warm and cozy environment that feels like home to both pet and pet owner. My Border Collie used to freak out just at the sign of the former vet we used to bring her to but here she feels right at home here, has no anxiety, and loves her new Dr. and staff. The building's period details and warm wood floors make you feel at home and has great appeal over the cold hospital practices we see a lot of.

Anna knew early in life that she wanted to be a Dr. of Veterinary Medicine and that dream came true. Anna spent her childhood in the Northwest corner of Connecticut where she later attended Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY. She graduated with honors in 1991 earning a degree in psychology. She began pursuing her dream of being a Vet by working several years as a veterinary technician before going on to veterinary school. She attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1998 where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in the top 5% of her class. She completed her internship right at Penn in small animal medicine and surgery in 1999. She then obtained a competitive residency in Emergency and Critical Care at Tufts University, a rigorous three year program where she became a board-certified specialist (diplomate) in Emergency and Critical care in 2002.
Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA, was her next stop in her veterinary career training veterinary students, interns, and residents where she later became the director of the residency program. Anna also met her husband Stephen at Angell Medical Center where they went on to work together at large referral hospitals in New Hampshire and Ohio. They longed to return to Connecticut where they truly felt home was in 2010. Anna became Director of Emergency Service at Central Animal Hospital in North Haven. After working several more years as a specialist, Anna decided it was time to open her own high-quality, service-oriented, small animal hospital where she can get to know both her patients and her clients.
Husband Stephen Crosby began working in veterinary hospitals at the age of 16. After he graduated from Northeastern University in 2004 he began working within the anesthesia department at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. Once he earned his Certified Veterinary Technician title, he carried various supervisory positions at a number of facilities in New England and Ohio.
Anna and Stephen are your neighbors!  They live nearby in Moodus with their adorable and wonderful daughters, Katori and Madison, and far too many animals to list. While not working at the practice, Stephen enjoys running, tinkering with gadgets and repairing vintage Ford tractors. In what little spare time Anna has, she enjoys running and hiking.
