About Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital

Trusted & Experienced Veterinarians in Bristol

Chippens Hill Veterinary Hospital was established by Dr. Larry Linnetz in 1976. His son, Veterinary Internist Eric Linnetz, DVM, DACVIM, sees ultrasound cases here weekly. Our hospital is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, which helps us maintain optimum service to our clients and their pets through continuing education, modern technology, cleanliness, and compassionate communication.

Our Bristol veterinarians and staff are committed to providing comfort, understanding, and concern for each pet’s individual needs. Lead veterinarian Emily Elliot, VMD and full-time veterinarian Cara Sweet, DVM, value the trust our clients place in us. We are excited to practice cutting-edge medicine by participating in FDA-approved clinical trials to introduce medications that have passed safety and efficacy tests into medical practice. Our doctors and staff will treat you and your beloved pets as part of the family!
