Welcome to VCA Douglas County Animal hospital. Our dedicated and compassionate staff are committed to offering comprehensive health care for your special family member. Our team of general practice doctors will help guide you through preventive care. This is the process of everything you need to know to provide your pet with the best care possible through all stages of life from nutrition, to vaccinations, to weight management, and everything in between. Should the time come that you need to consider more advanced services in emergency/critical care or surgery, our caring doctors are here to help with advanced medicine. Because we recognize and share that special bond between people and pets, we see walk-ins and same day appointments. For over 25 years Douglas County Animal Hospital has been serving the Castle Rock, Castle Pines, Perry Park, Sedalia, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, Parker, Monument, Palmer Lake, Colorado Springs, Elizabeth, Franktown, and Kiowa areas.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
As a Low Stress Handling™ certified practice, our goal is to recognize fear and anxiety in our patients. We use techniques to meet your pet's need for mental and physical comfort while in our hospital, and adjust our handling and medical treatments to help reduce their stress. We are always working to give your pet the best medical care with the least amount of stress possible. We are proud to be a Low Stress Handling™ certified animal hospital. We hold ourselves to a higher standard of care and help make your pet's veterinary visits more enjoyable.
Caring for pets means meeting a wide range of needs beyond health care. Fortunately, there’s a whole community of organizations and businesses eager to help.
Here’s where to meet the local groups that we recommend to our pet-loving families.
