Practical Experience with a Diverse Clientele and a Variety of Situations
Welcome to Fremont Veterinary Hospital! We are a family-owned and operated veterinary practice located in Canon City. Without corporate oversight, we allow our doctors to practice freely which allows us to meet the needs of our diverse clientele. We have been serving Fremont County and the surrounding areas since 1951. At this busy, three doctor practice, we treat small animals only and offer the latest in hospital design and technology to serve much of Southern Colorado, including: Canon City, Penrose, Florence, Westcliffe, and Pueblo communities. We are proud to offer a 5,600 square foot facility with digital radiography (dental and general), Idexx for in house labs (including urinalysis machine), ultrasound, and laser therapy (both therapeutic and surgical).
Our well-established practice with an outstanding reputation here in our community offers an updated facility to provide the best care possible. With long standing veterinarians, CVTs and assistants, we are able to provide the community with a familiar face during their pet’s care.
Currently, we offer high quality dentistry/oral surgery, ultrasonography, and some orthopedic surgeries. We welcome any additional specialty that a new staff member would provide and encourage diversity of skill sets. Our doctors take pride in the quality of medicine that we provide to our patients and collaborate as a team to discuss patient care for the best outcome for our clients.
