  • Awesome Staff

    -Robert Webb from Loveland, CO
    Pet Name: Dakota

    Want to thank the staff at VCA and especially Dr. Berrera for the miracle you guys performed on our lab Dakota. Dr. Berrera really is truly gifted in what she does and is such an outstanding person. Great job and thanks for such wonderful care while Dakota was there.

  • A Million Thank Yous

    -Debbie Anello from Loveland, CO
    Pet Name: Scooter

    I can't say enough about VCA of Northern Colorado!! They saved my little (16 lb) Scooter's life!! The pictures, when she was admitted, are too gross to even post, however, she had gotten into D-Con!! She was bleeding to death.....They not only treated Scooter, but they were ALL sincerely concerned about me and her sister, Carla, a 75 lb Lab mix! I know for sure if I had not taken her to VCA with that amazing staff, little Scooter would not be here today. BUT instead, after only one week, my little family is all back together and everyone is healthy!!!
    We will come to say HI from time to time.....

    A Million Thank yous,

  • Saving Lady

    -Lady's Mom from Ft. Collins, CO
    Pet Name: Lady

    My dog, Lady recently suffered a life threatening injury to her neck and spinal cord resulting in paralysis. I was referred to a local vet neurologist, Dr. Amy Komitor, at the VCA Animal Hospital in North Loveland. She performed emergency surgery the evening before Thanksgiving to realign the dislocated vertebrae in Lady's neck, saving her life. The amazing staff there are on duty 24/7 to assist in any type of vet emergency imaginable. They were there even on Thanksgiving day providing incredible care for Lady and helping us all recover from this traumatic incident.
    The most amazing part was the call from Dr. Komitor on Saturday morning (she had come in on her day off to check on Lady) telling me that Lady had begun moving her legs that morning and would be able to come home that afternoon. Monday morning, I returned to the hospital with Lady for a recheck and the doctors and staff welcomed us like family members, all so excited to see Lady and the progress she was making in her recovery.

  • Worth the Eleven Hour Drive

    -Stormy Barton Apgar from Gallatin Gateway, MT
    Pet Name: Merlin and Nicki

    Pet Image I brought my very ill cat and German Shepherd dog to VSNC all the way from Montana because I knew of their reputation as an excellent veterinary specialty hospital. The care my animals received was above and beyond my expectations. The doctors and techs worked tirelessly and lovingly to diagnose very difficult conditions. They treated me and both of my animals with an amazing amount of respect, tenderness and concern. I couldn't have made it through that very difficult time without them and they will always hold a special place in my heart!

  • Best Care Ever

    -Heidi and Aaron from Loveland, CO
    Pet Name: Jesse

    The entire staff @ VCA in Loveland, Colorado has been wonderful. Our beloved dog Jesse was diagnosed with lymphoma almost a year ago. Thanks to Dr. Wendy, Lisa, and everyone there, Jesse has been doing wonderful. It has been worth every penny to have him here with us today. I don't know what we would have done without them!

  • I'm doing well

    -Nancy Zawacki from Jackson, WY
    Pet Name: Emmy

    Emmy had part of her liver removed on February 1, 2014 by Dr Jessica and wants you all to know she's doing quite well. Some kidney issues, but every other day hydration and some herbal supplements are keeping h kidney markers near normal. Thanks again for your amazing care.

  • Chico's Back Surgery

    -Casey Cori Clark from Brighton, CO
    Pet Name: Chico

    Pet Image We would like to thank the entire staff!
    Chico is a Terrier mix dog that was in severe pain and needed back surgery. Dr. Komitor explained the whole procedure to us in great detail. Using examples and terms that we could understand. It broke our hearts to see this loving little dog dragging his hind legs and in so much pain. (the sad part). Now, after Dr. Komitor completed the surgery, 4 weeks later you can hardly tell that he ever had a problem at all. We have our happy loving Chico back. (The awesome part).

    This Vet Hospital and all the people there care for animals like I have never seen before. Dr. Komitor would do what ever she has to, to keep the pet comfortable. Chico was very anxious when in side the office, she took him out side to take his staples out where he was at ease. I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

    Thank you everyone for a great job!!!

  • To the amazing VCA specialists staff

    -Lanny Lincoln from Driggs, ID
    Pet Name: Lanny Lincoln

    Pet Image My dog Lanny got very ill and could not urinate while I was living in Driggs Idaho. The local vet in Driggs told me Lanny needed complete pelvic reconstruction surgery or to be put down. I immediately loaded up Lanny and drove 9 hours to the VCA Specialists in Loveland, Colorado. They were amazing not only did they find the real cause of Lanny's urination problem and treat it but they were friendly, respectful, considerate, very very helpful, and just plain amazing. Lanny is doing better then ever and I can't thank Dr. Rifkin and her staff enough for all they did.

  • Great place to take your four legged love one

    -Colleen Kelly and Jake from Brighton, CO
    Pet Name: Jake and Boo

    Pet Image I want to thank Dr. Green and all the staff at VCA in Loveland. 6 years ago, my lab/rottie mix needed surgery on his elbow for elbow dysplasia. Dr Fitch, who is no longer there, did Jake's surgery. He was a great surgeon, explaining everything to me and took great care of Jake. Fast forward 6 years and Jake is now limping on his other elbow. Dr Green met with us, and spent a very long time, examining Jake, and explaining everything to me very thoroughly. He was very kind to Jake in his exam. He took care of Jake like he was his own instead of just another patient. All the staff in this hospital are very loving, caring people. Even though they are about an hour away from me, I will always go to them for any special needs that we may have and will also refer them to anyone needing help with their 4 legged family members. Thank you Dr. Green for your help and the education that you have given me as well. Just to show you how active Jake is, I have included a picture of him with "his" bull, Boo!

  • Thank You

    -Sydney from Loveland, CO
    Pet Name: Decster Noodle Weddle

    My son's dog, Dexster, was taken to VCA VSNC on Tuesday night, April 10, 2012. She had a very low blood count of son was told she was bleeding internally but they could not tell from where. They also told him she may not make it. Devastating news. Well, the staff not only treated Dexster with kindness caring and respect; they treated her family with the exact same care and concern. A treatment plan was in place which ultimately included surgery. Thanks to diligent care and Dexster's will and fitness, she is now on the road to full recovery. My son took her home on April 14. She is not out of the woods as yet but surgery is not indicated at this point, however, she will need blood checks daily. We really want to thank the Doctors and staff at VCA for taking such good care of our Dexster. They could not have been nicer. We will recommend this facility to any pet owner without reservation! Many, many thanks!
