Shoreline Opens Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center in Convenient New Shelton Location
SHELTON, Conn., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Veterinary hospitals and pet owners in the Shelton, Connecticut, area now have a convenient and advanced new resource for the medical and surgical treatment of animals.
Shoreline Animal Emergency Clinic, which has provided emergency coverage to area hospitals on off hours and holidays for over 20 years, announces the opening of its state-of-the-art new Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center in Shelton, conveniently located at 895 Bridgeport Avenue, just off Exit 11 of Route 8.
Together with the Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center of Norwalk, the new facility will offer coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "In addition to our more accessible new location, our expanded hours will offer greater convenience for referring veterinarians and their clients," said Larry Berkwitt, DVM, DACVIM, chief of staff of the new center. "Pets will no longer need to be picked up before eight a.m., allowing veterinarians and their clients more time to make treatment and transfer decisions."
Shoreline offers internal medicine and ultrasound services by Dr. Berkwitt and Dr. Michelle Cieplucha, who will be available for referrals on an emergency or appointment basis, Monday through Friday. Surgical emergency services will be covered on a 24/7 basis until April by the doctors at the VREC of Norwalk and the Cheshire Veterinary Hospital.
By April, the new facility will offer comprehensive referral services, including internal medicine, surgery, neurology, radiology, critical care and cardiology.
