Dr. Azzolin has had a long-standing passion for working with animals, starting as a child showing dogs. He graduated from The Ohio State University with his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine in 1985. Dr. Azzolin graduated with high honors and won his senior class award for excellence in small animal surgery. While at OSU he also earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Zoology and a Masters degree in Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology.
After graduation, Dr. Azzolin moved to New Haven and completed a small animal internship at New Haven Central Hospital for Veterinary Medicine. This same year he started managing the Northford Veterinary Clinic.
Not completely satisfied with the limitations of standard medicine, Dr. Azzolin returned to school in 1995 and earned certification in Veterinary Acupuncture from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. He now combines his skills in Veterinary Medicine with acupuncture. To this day, continuing education in small animal medicine and surgery is an integral part of Dr. Azzolin's life.
It has been a long road traveled but Dr. Azzolin is proud to be a part of the Northford community and is energized serving his patients and their human's kind enough to bring them to the Northford Veterinary Clinic.
When not at the clinic or hospital, Dr. Azzolin can be found with any or all of his rescued three dogs or five cats. His interests also include boating, running, snow boarding and travel. He has three dogs, Brynn, Max, and Gunther. He also has four cats, Daisey, Karoma, Oliver, and Precious.
