About Us

The Community Veterinary Clinic opened for business in 1989 when the founders, Dr. Jeff LaCroix and Dr. Dana Taylor, joined together as partners, and moved Dr. LaCroix's existing practice in Easton, CT to the present location on Fairfield Woods Road. Dr. Daly joined the clinic in 1995 and later became co-owner with Dr. Taylor. Dr. Bauer married Dr. Taylor's daughter in 2017, and began working at Community Veterinary Clinic in 2018. Dr. Meade joined the team in 2022. We strive to provide the same honest, personalized and compassionate care that has been provided to our clients over the last 30+ years.

All of our doctors are members of the AVMA (national), CVMA (state) and FCVMA (county) veterinary organizations.
All of our doctors are accredited by the USDA to issue health and travel certificates both domestically and internationally.
