Customer Testimonials

My pets have been coming since they were a few months old. They are 10 and 9 years old now. We love the doctors and staff. I truly trust them with my doggies health needs.


Moose is a tiny chihuahua I rescued last week. Had many issues due to neglect & one being her teeth. Called on Monday & was lucky to have an exam & dental on the same day. Wednesday. Technician did a fabulous job! photos of before & after are remarkable. She called after to let me know how it went & how Moose was doing. Moose could do a toothpaste commercial. Gleaming white teeth!


Back in January our 13 year old husky/shepard rescue had a seizure...I thought she'd had a stroke and was ready to let her go. The vet we'd used for years isn't open Saturdays but I knew my daughter was using someone she really liked, so I called her. We were the first to be seen, Dr. Howe asked many questions about the seizure while doing a table exam on poor Ramona, who could not stand. The initial diagnosis was probably vertigo related. We left Ray for a more thorough exam and tests (while we went for a walk), came back 90 minutes later to a walking-ish, tail-wagging animal, medications, diagnosis and acceptable bill. I was thrilled with the knowledge, care and attention my Ramona got. But it get's better.

After recommended dental work, including extractions, Ramona came home in March cleaner, sleeker and less shedding than I've seen in the years since mobile groomers refused bathe her at home (big, jumpy, angry...knew how to get a muzzle off). Again, healthy mouth, gums and easy recovery from extractions at reasonable cost we understood up front. So, when I had the big family holiday dinner recently, Ramona spent the morning with Blue Cross for grooming. While there I asked about some of the vertigo meds, which they price-matched with on-line purveyors, Julie apprised me of needed vacinations (after SHE contacted the previous vet), and my doggie was a happy, clean, cuddleable camper for the guests.

I am a dedicated Blue Cross Pet Hospital fan, for all they do, who they are and the care my current and future pets get. Unfortunately, my daughter's two kitties moved to Denver!
