Dr. Christopher Brunner earned a B.S. in Animal Bioscience with a minor in Microbiology and honors in Veterinary Medicine from Penn State University. He later earned his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
After moving to Connecticut, Dr. Brunner spent a short time as the attending veterinarian for the Westport branch of the Connecticut Humane Society. His time in shelter medicine gave him a unique opportunity to strengthen his surgical skills and his ability to quickly diagnose and treat infectious diseases.
Dr. Brunner later joined the staff of Brookfield Animal Hospital in Brookfield, CT. As the full-time associate, he saw a large portion of the hospital caseload and quickly developed a local following. His professional interests include preventative medicine and minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopy and other endoscopic techniques. He is an active member of both the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) and is one of a handful of area veterinarians accredited by the USDA to sign international health certificates.
Dr. Brunner lives in New Milford with his wife Andrea, two daughters Katelyn and Leah, and miniature dachshund Riley. He is actively involved with his church, drums for the Bryan James Gatten Band, and loves spending time following baseball and reading with his little girls.
Dr. Rachel Harter is a graduate of Cornell University School of Veterinary Medicine and has been practicing for 12 years.
She began her career at Seneca Animal Hospital outside of Buffalo, NY, a six-doctor growing practice which introduced her to managing heavy case-loads and also helped her build strong diagnostic and surgical skills. It was also there that she developed a particular interest in client education, leading new-owner puppy training classes and writing an “Ask the Vet” column for the Buffalo News.
Dr. Harter spent 7 years practicing at Brookfield Animal Hospital in Brookfield, CT where she was able to experience the operation of a smaller practice within a smaller town, which she greatly enjoyed. Dr. Harter is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and lives in Danbury with her husband Adam, her three children, Bryce, Hayley and Sienna and her two dogs, Sydney and Crystal.
