9080298We are no longer a full service veterinary clinic.  We are still in Cortez, Colorado, but have reduced our services as I approach retirement.  We are still doing spays/neuters of cats and smaller dogs, some simple dentals, and vaccinations along with some other services that occur on a day to day basis at a reasonable cost.  I am no longer doing diagnostics or taking on ongoing cases.

As I near retirement, I have decided to reduce my hours to 3 days a week, so most of my appointments are done on M, T and Th.  I am no longer doing any large animal care, but focusing more on dogs and cats.  I am wanting to enjoy my horses more,  so riding and camping is becoming a bigger part of my life.  That means more trips and time away from practice.


We have limited facilities to diagnose and treat your pet.

Health Certificates


All anesthetized animals are monitored with a pulse oximeter that displays heart rate and oxygen levels, and an apnea meter that indicates respiratory rate during all surgical procedures.

These prices are all inclusive unless otherwise stated, no hidden fees!

I am limiting surgery/dental patients to 50# as my table isn’t adjustable.

Feline Spay $120.00 Pregnant may have an additional charge.

Canine Spay (Pregnant or in heat will have an additional charge)

I am less available as I approach full retirement, and am seldom available for after hours calls, except Home Euthanasias. My voicemail message does state when I am out of town.  However I do not sit by the phone waiting for someone to call as days may go by without a call. I hike, walk my dogs and ride my horses as often as I can and I doing more trips. Your Emergency is important and I will be paged immediately upon leaving a message. If you do not get a return call with in a time frame acceptable to you, please utilize other resources.
