We are excited to join the Darien community and are looking forward to meeting you and your furry companions! Finan Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing caring, compassionate veterinary care to your pets. We understand that you care for your pets as part of your family, and as veterinarians we strive to do the same. Dr. Finan and the staff at Finan Animal Hospital believe that an educated pet owner is invaluable. Our goal is to keep your pet healthy by helping you fully understand your pet’s needs.

We hope you’ll find the following sets us apart from other animal hospitals:

• We are a paperless practice. All our medical records are computerized which allows for easy record keeping and is more environmentally friendly.
• We know you’re busy- call and schedule a drop-off appointment.
• Our hospital is clean, quiet, and stocked with state of the art equipment. You’ll find digital and dental radiography, ultrasound, therapy laser, in-house lab equipment and fully equipped surgery and dentistry suites.

We hope to form a life long relationship with you and your pets!

Testimonial

  • "Dr. Finan is the most caring, compassionate Dr. you could ask for. I wish my own physicians cared as much as she does! Her facility is first-rate and so are all of her employees. All of this costs money, but if you care about your pets, rest assured that you are getting even more than you pay for. Dr. Finan never suggests anything more than is necessary, and does not "guilt trip" you into doing more than you can afford (unlike other Vets I no longer go too.) I am a lifelong animal lover, and a thrifty person. I give the Dr, her facility and her staff the highest recommendation!"
