About Pieper Veterinary

In 1937 in the heart of Connecticut, Dr. Neil Pieper founded a small one-doctor veterinary practice for both farm and companion animals. For the next 50 years, he treated countless patients until his retirement in 1987, with the practice now in the hands of Dr. Robert Olson and Dr. Virginia Nunez-Olson. With the Olsons’ vision the practice grew rapidly, including a premiere 24-hour emergency and specialty center which opened in 2010. Following the Olsons’ retirement in 2022, Pieper is now led by the next generation – Tessa Olson, CEO, and Dr. Ben Olson, CMO. They look forward to continuing Dr. Pieper’s legacy of education, teamwork, and providing the very best medical care.
