We know choosing the right veterinarian to care for your pet is a hard decision. Here’s why you should bring your furry friend to our Danielson and Killingly veterinary hospital:

We CONNECT like no other veterinary hospital

Our practice is family-owned and run, and you are part of that family from your first visit. (We’ll even give you an adorable canvas tote full of pet goodies to welcome you!)

We EDUCATE pet owners

Our veterinarians aren’t trying to rush you out of the exam room! We believe in taking the time to teach in-person and online to ensure you are prepared to care for your furry friend.


You’ll always leave your pet’s exam understanding as much as possible about their health, and we use social media, texts & our app to stay in touch between visits.

Meet the team!

Veterinarian & Practice Owner

Dr. David J. Lambert opened Quinebaug Valley Veterinary Hospital in 2002. Before starting QVVH, Dr. Lambert spent five years working at other veterinary practices in Plainfield & Ashford, CT. He graduated from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in 1997. Although he finds interest in all types of cases, he especially enjoys treating allergy issues and performing orthopedic surgeries.

An active member of the local community, Dr. Lambert dedicates a considerable amount of time to North East Regional Animal Control (NECOGG), Pet Pals Northeast Inc., & Sweet Binks Rabbit Rescue Inc. When Dr. L. isn’t at the hospital, he can be found watching Boston sports, golfing, or spending time with his wife, Rebecca, and four children. You’ll often spot one of his dogs, Anna, in the hospital office!
