Very professional, courteous, knowledgeable team. Very pleased with each experience we have had with our pets. Staff is top notch and veterinarians (and techs) are the best.

I have been a client of Columbine Animal Hospital for 5 years now and I love Dr. Todd she has helped my golden retriever with allergies and all the stages of getting older. I don't have any negative reviews to say about the hospital, I would recommend them to all my friends to bring there pets there.

Great clinic, super caring- a real find!! We are new to town and the whole staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They can also get you in quick. Everyone there is very personable, and they take their time with the patients. (woof) Also they follow up on patients religiously. We are happy to find this great place on the first try! They are very clear about what the charges will be and there are NO surprises. The rates seem fair for Colorado.

My cats are very shy and gets scared at the vet. I wanted to find a place that would take their time and treat my cats gently and with patience. The vets here are so great with my 3 shy boys! They understand cats and take their time. I always have a bunch of questions and they also spend extra time with me. I love this vet!

Caring and Personal - I have been bringing my pets here for 13 years. They are a bit on the pricey side, but not much more than the other vet offices in the area. They are also more than willing to work with you about how much you can afford to properly take care of your pets. When I brought my dog in to be put down the staff was nothing less than caring and professional. They gave me all the time and comfort I needed. After the fact I received a card in the mail giving even more support. I would never advise anyone to go to another office in town.

I took a found dog to Columbine Animal Hosp. to have her scanned for a microchip. While there, they gave her a light examination, removed sutures from a previous surgery, and provided a treatment of Frontline to combat the fleas. All of this was provided at no charge. The care shown for a homeless dog is enough for me to take my own dogs there for their next check-up.

EVERYONE that works there cares so much about the animals and will do anything it takes to make them feel comfortable and at ease. Also, the owner is a wonderful person. She takes the time and money to help strays with private training lessons, boarding, food, everything, even if the stray is a bit aggressive. If you have cost concerns, they will try to work something out with you. I love my dog with all my heart and for me to say I am 100 percent comfortable with leaving her there and trusting in the doctors and staff is a big deal.

Wonderful people and wonderful care I had been to a couple different veterinary hospitals around the city prior to finding Columbine Animal Hospital. The staff is amazing. They are very kind, and truly care about the well being of your pet. They do not push anything on you that you do not want, and offer great advice for all of your animal needs.

She sent us home with antibiotics and even called the next day to check up on Zeek. Zeek was in great hands and is healing nicely. I'm sure if he saw the doctor again, he'd want to give her a big sloppy kiss.

This place is incredible. The staff here are friendly, attentive, fast, and professional. With pet insurance so expensive these days, and most vets charging more to see your cat or dog than your own doctor would to see you, this place is a blessing.

We came home late in the afternoon to a very sick and lethargic cat. Being new to the area, We hadn't decided on a vet yet and found Columbine Animal Hospital referred by my co-worker. We walked-in and were immediately seen. All of the staff and doctors were all very sweet and attentive and Dr. Bregitzer was wonderful! My kitty is resting comfortably and in much better condition and we have found our new vet.

I've been taking my dog to Columbine Animal Hospital for several years and I love the entire office. The vaccination clinic is a great time and money saver but I've also been in for emergency appointments. But the entire staff was so great about making me feel at peace with my decision (it just meant slower healing time and more work on my part) and called periodically to check on the dog's progress. My heart and the dog's wound healed fine. I highly recommend taking your pet here.

I agree with the other reviewer. They don't even deserve one star. This is probably one of the worst vet hospitals in Denver. After finding another vet office, I learned from several other vets that Columbine Animal Hospital is well known for recommending unnecessary procedures and treatments. My dog caught a virus at the Furry Scurry and $2000 later... They kept her overnight, recommended tons of medications, etc. She recovered so I am thankful for that. I have also learned that the overvaccinate pets. We were taking her in for shots every 6 months (did not know any better) until they gave her an overdose and she nearly died. I had taken her in on a Saturday and a few hours later, she couldn't walk, stand, anything. I was completely freaked out and called them, and learned that they were not open in the afternoon but that I was welcome to bring her in and pay for an after hours treatment. What could I do? Of course I brought her in and again, this woman vet says, oh we need to keep her overnight, etc. etc. which I knew she did not need (I had talked to a breeder friend of mine) and I knew that she only needed an antidote and be brought home to rest. This lady proceeds to work up three estimates of care and suggests I choose. $500 $1000 $1500. FOR THEIR MISTAKE? If you love your pet, I would never recommend that you take your animal to this facility. Not only will they charge you an arm and a leg, they recommend and administer treatments that are dangerous for your pet.

My puppy MAY have eaten rhubarb leaves, we took him in for treatment. They insisted on keeping him overnight. We didn't object for we wanted to cover all the ends and make sure if he DID eat it that he was treated for it. We called after he had been in there for about 6 hours and had charcoal, blood work, cathader, Urine tests, etc. and the person I spoke to said my est $ was $600.00 and he was doing great and we should be able to get him first thing in the morning, he said he saw "No reason why not". I called the next morning and the doctor told me she took it upon her self (Dr. Carol) to re-test him again and wanted to do a THIRD round of tests even though the first two showed nothing! I told her I didn't feel it was necessary for my puppy to go through any more trauma in their clinic. She told me it was a precautionary to keep him in there longer and I asked if it was necessary and she said yes. I asked for a medical reason why and couldn't get one out of her. They were stand offish and completely vague with any answers we would try to get. These people are borderline rude and outright ridiculous with their billing. When the doctor could not give me a medical reason to keep my puppy for another day and POSSIBLY another night I told her to get him ready to go and wed be by to pick him up. When we picked him up our bill was $980.00! $380.00 more than the estimate I had only received hours earlier. The only difference on my bill was the three prescriptions she gave us that totaled $100.00, so within the five minutes it took to pick up our puppy the bill jumped an extra $280.00?!? The people at Columbine are crooks.

I had been taking my pets to Columbine Animal Hospital for several years despite firing the first vet that treated my pet there. It was close to home and they have someone on staff 24 hrs. a day. I stopped going because I got fed up with the lackadaisical attitude of the vet treating my cat. My cat suffered symptoms for months. He was x-rayed, medicated (the drug affected his appetite and his activity level), given laser treatments, I tried chiropractic and acupuncture treatments as well. I was referred to a neurological specialist at VCRR that was a waste of time and money. The drug he prescribed made my cat so groggy he couldn't walk up the stairs. None of the vets at Columbine even agreed with his bogus diagnosis and yet my vet still didn't go out of her way to consult with anyone else. While this was going on both of my cats were then diagnosed with UTI's and put on antiobiotics. They were retested and I was told they both still had UTI's and were switched to another antibiotic. Since I wasn't getting any answers on what was wrong with my original cat. I switched to another vet clinic and had culture done for both cats. They both came back negative for a UTI, which means my cats immune systems were being compromised by the use of antibotics that they didn't need. This is the last thing my cat needed given that he was still suffering from something that hadn't been diagnosed in 5 months.

My new vet is treating my cat with B12 shots and it is relieving his symptoms. He's had no side affects from it. His appetite is back to normal as well as his activity. The treatment is simple and relatively inexpensive.

Thank goodness I finally was smart enough to move on.

I took my golden in for a bite wound over the weekend and needed the ER service. The vet treated the wound with a drainage system, and warned us that we shouldn't let her bite at it. But, if she did bite that we should get a hood. That was the only advice. Well, she ripped it out 30 minutes later, and we had to take her back. They kept her all night again and told us we would receive a call in the morning, but we didn't. We called and they said we could pick her up in the late afternoon, but they were very evasive in their answers and we thought that their were some complications or that she may have died and they needed the doctor to tell us. All day they left us hanging on edge. When we picked her up we were told that they would wrap the wound this time!!! Wow, if that would have been done the first time we wouldn't have had to make our dog suffer for the second day and night in their hospital. Of course we were charged for this wrapping job and it cost another 400 (first visit was 650). The day vet also told us that we should severely limit her activity, but the first vet never told us this. Also, the dates for the stitches and drainage removals varied by a week from vet to vet in the clinic. I just feel that if we were informed better the first time we would have avoided a second visit. Why wasn't the wound wrapped the first time, when I asked I got no reply and an "uh-huh, I see."

The extra cost was an issue, but the most objectionable offense was to tell us our dog would be ready to pick up at 8, but make us wait until 4 and being cryptic and rather rude about the reasoning behind a delay that was justified by a need to speak with a vet, but the vet only told us that we needed to make another appointment to get the drain out. Couldn't a tech have done that?
