Return to Colorado Equine Clinic
The Small Animal Clinic is a full service general practice clinic focused on providing advanced, compassionate, and personalized care to your cats and dogs. We have been an established veterinary practice in the Roxborough/ Littleton area for the last 25 years, providing high quality care to horses. We aim to take the personalized, relationship-driven style of medicine that we have developed over the years and provide the same service to our small animal clients.
What does this mean to our patients and clients? It means that you are part of a practice that wants to spend the time to know you and your pet, talk about any of your questions and concerns, and provide the kind of veterinary-client-patient relationship that gets lost in the hustle and bustle of corporate medicine.
There are a lot of words thrown out for corporate values and practice culture, often times they sounds the same no matter where you go, We believe in excellent work and compassionate care, as almost every veterinary practice does. That is not what sets us apart. We focus on the relationships we have with our clients and their pets, helping people by helping their animals. We exemplify this through the time we take. Our appointments are a little longer, we see fewer patients in the day so that each individual can get our full attention, so every client has an opportunity to ask questions. We believe veterinary medicine is a partnership between the veterinarian and the animal owner. It is our job to advise, educate, and provide expert services and treatments. It is just as important that you have an understanding of what, why, and how we are helping your pet, so that you can make informed decisions, administer the best at-home treatments, and help your pet live a longer, happier life.
If you are interested in a veterinarian that practices a high quality of medicine and offers advanced therapies that has the culture and mentality of a small, family-owned business, then call The Small Animal Clinic at Colorado Equine and let us help your pets lead healthier lives.
Exams and Consultations
Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.
We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands, and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
There are a variety of diseases which affect our pets and other animals. This makes proper vaccination vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to. It’s important to consult with us about the unique risks of living in our region. We will be happy to discuss the benefits of protecting your pet with vaccinations, as well as, provide you with information on the required vaccinations for your pet.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe. This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems. We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Our hospital provides a wide variety of in-house diagnostic testing with the most state of the art technology available. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of care possible, and our diagnostic tools help us do that.
We offer a fully stocked pharmacy to fill your pet’s prescription needs. Having an on-site pharmacy provides you with a more convenient way to get your pet’s medication. We hope that this will save you time and ultimately enhance your experience with us.
