Please post good vets you have been to. Name the vet clinic as well as the name of the veterinarian you saw as sometimes a vet clinic can have both good and bad vets. Put the city as the subject line.

This is a information thread only. To keep this easy to follow for people in search of a vet all chat or questions will be removed. Please only post if you have a vet recommendation.

If a poster wishes to add more information, post what you want added to your original post and then ask a mod or admin to include your new post with the original.

Default Denver & Golden, Colorado

I can help a bit here. I have talked to several exotic vets, as well as those who run the few reptile rescues here in Colorado. They have said that Dr. Fitzgerald of Alameda East was not recommended to go to as far as exotics go. They didn't specify why, but I know he personally rubs me the wrong way. He's the vet that used to be on Emergency Vets (Animal Planet show). I will have to give one of the reptile rescues a call to get their reasoning on why he's not recommended.

His info:

Dr Kevin T. Fitzgerald
Emergency Vets / Alameda East Vet Hospital
9770 E. Alameda Ave
Denver CO, 80230
(303) 366-2639

I am currently using Dr. Ahlgrim at Goldenview, but my opinion is still being formed. I haven't gone often enough to establish full thoughts on her, though I plan on changing that in the new year. I can say that the building seems clean enough and she was as gentle as you can be when a rescued snake I bought off Craigslist was eggbound. The snake did die the next day, but I feel Dr. Ahlgrim did what she could to try to save the situation. The eggs that she pulled out of the poor snake were very gross and I'm surprised she lived as long as she did in that condition. Other than this visit, I can't comment much. I'll update as soon as I can. Perhaps others have a more in depth review?

Default Colorado Springs & Aurora, Colorado

The breeder I bought Roamer from uses:

Dr. Russel Welfare
North Powers Animal Hospital (npahvet.com)
5470 Powers Center Point Suite 100
Colorado Springs, CO 80920
PH: 719-282-1222

I had a concern about my baby and he was willing to have me call and talk to him for free. I did not need to take advantage of the free consult because the concern resolved itself.

I use:

Dr. Monique Weldon
Loving Family Animal Hospital
14605 E Arapahoe Rd
Aurora, CO 80016
PH: 303-680-5050

They are a brand new office, but everyone has been super duper friendly so far! (I haven't spent a whole lot of time getting to know them yet.) She was very professional and friendly via email. Dr Weldon has 9 years experience treating hedgies, as well as surgery experience with them. She also said that she took special exotic animal courses during vet school, and has an exotics certification. The hospital also has AAHA certification. I feel very comfortable with her experience, and look forward to including her in my animal family

I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Dr. Weldon. She is an excellent vet, and you can really tell that she loves her profession. She, along with the vet tech staff, handle my Lilo so well and love having her in the office. She knew just what to do when Lilo had an abscess on her paw and gave her treatment right away. The best part is that the clinic is not even 5 minutes from my home, which makes it very convenient for me and less stressful for Lilo. If you are in the area and looking for a knowledgeable vet and all around wonderful staff to bring your hedgie (or any animal to) Loving Family Animal Hospital is top notch.

Wasn't sure where to put this, anyone know of one anywhere near Parker,Colorado? Aurora is a little far, same with Denver, Colorado Springs is pretty far away in the other direction, and Loveland is a whole hours and a half away!

I live in Littleton Colorado. I've seen my exotic vet for my ferrets before. She had been so gentle with them and with me when they had become afflicted with adrenal disease. I love the fact that she takes her time and explains what her plans are for the long-term care of the animal she is seeing. She will be my vet when I pick up my hedgie next week.

Her information: Dr. Paula Bumpers at Canyon View Animal Hospital
12482 W Ken Caryl Ave
Littleton, CO 80127
(303) 948-5000

Hours:
Mon-Tue 7:30 am - 7 pm
Wed-Fri 7:30 am - 6 pm
Sat 9 am - 3 pm
