This is an excellent office. The staff is kind and caring. The facility is very clean. They were not directly able to handle our pet's injury but did find the resources we needed to seek treatment for an exotic pocket pet. They also have fresh coffee and complimentary snacks which are life savers when you are waiting.Kana M.3/10/2020
I had to take my Nicky into the ER for care and I was very pleased with the care and service we received. This was my second visit. The first visit years ago I was also very pleased with the care and service. The staff are great and keep you informed and the doctor explains the care needed in great detail. Every question is answered. Wonderful compassionate and caring clinic. Thank you ALL!!!Kathy C.2/25/2020
I have always had a lot of issues with this ER. For instance, it takes a couple of hours and about 5 different people to get checked in. Because of bad experiences in the past, I always want my own vet to confirm their diagnosis.
But having said that, the ICU team is the best in the business. I have worked with them before and I am always impressed. They truly have the best interest of the pet in mind and their care always exceeds expectations. The 5 stars are for the ICU team.Kristen D.2/18/2020
Such a nice place. Vet and vet assistant's were top notch. As were the receptionists. The vet was especially good at calming my lil nervous pup. The news I got was heart breaking. And they were all so compassionate. Also had my 6 year old daughter there with me. There were toys drinks and snacks to keep her at bay. I will definitely go here again for my future fur babies.Erica H.1/27/2020
Coal was handled very nicely even though he was not always cooperative. Everything about his exam and treatment was explained. We were satisfied with findings and results. He improved a lot during observation period. That was comforting! Staff very pleasant. Facility attractive, clean. The extras of treats and blankets and drinks for owners is going beyond. Thanks for everything!Joanne P.1/20/2020
Great experience. Have been here twice for emergencies and was super impressed by the staff and treatment. We just had a minor emergency and called to see if we needed to bring our dog in and they advised us over the phone. Really put us at ease! Thank you to the receptionist and Dr. that was on shift tonight.Matt H.1/14/2020
Our 14 yo Norfolk Terrier went into congestive heart failure as we visited Colorado Springs. We were offered a treatment plan that was affordable but his prognosis was poor. We trusted this place to help us as we decided to have our pet euthanized. Sad sad but the compassion we were shown and the support was exemplary. Wonderful staff.Charlene g.1/03/2020
We recently had to come here for emergency care for our Husky. Unfortunately we had no choice but to put our beloved Dante down. However, we greatly appreciate how caring and professional they are. Very honest and caring veterinarians here. It is worth the time and money considering there are a lot of untrustworthy veterinarians anymore. I highly recommend this ER for pets.Buckeye C.12/27/2019
Our little man, Tucker, was struggling to breathe. The second I walked in, Heather up-front took him and put him on oxygen. She was so kind and informative. Heather walked us through the process and our options. Her kindness was more than I have ever experienced before. We were on vacation from Missouri and away from our vet. Tucker's trachea had collapsed...I can honestly say that they saved his life! He is now back to being the snuggly baby that we know. Dr. Heather was fabulous as well, she spoke to us consistently throughout Tucker's stay and took a lot of time with us. I can't say thank you enough to the staff here! Well worth the money to save our baby!!Shannon M.7/03/2019
