Dr. Stephen Muir

Dr. Muir received an undergraduate degree in Microbiology from the University of Iowa and my DVM degree from Iowa State University. He worked extensively in infectious disease research including 25 years of veterinary vaccine development and 8 years in experimental drug research in patients with cancer. He decided to return to general practice in order to apply his experience to improve primary care for companion animals. He believes very strongly in the human-animal bond and the value it can bring to patients, owners, and caregivers alike. He emphasizes regionally-tailored preventive care programs to improve both longevity and quality of life for our pets. He works diligently to help owners prioritize goals for the care of their pet, then provide sound medical and dental options available to them in order to make an informed decision going forward. He is proud to join the team at East Brook Animal Hospital. When he’s not running with his dog Rumi, his free time centers around golfing with his four sons or camping with his granddaughter who lives in southeastern Connecticut.

In addition she has augmented her formal education by working with some of the top dog trainers in obedience, agility and herding and competed successfully at the highest levels.

In her free time Dr. DeNapoli keeps busy operating a small farm where she runs flocks of sheep, ducks, and chickens. To help her control the menagerie, she relies on the assistance of her Australian Cattle Dog and German Shepherd Dog.
