Staff spotlight: Janie is one of our veterinary assistants, and we hired her just after she finished her training through PIMA in Aurora. Her love of animals shines through everything she does, and Janie is happiest at work when she is navigating a busy day, but she also knows how to rest a moment to make a scared pet feel more at ease. Lily was with us yesterday for her spay, and Janie let her rest on her lap during her pre-surgical exam, since this is how Lily felt safest. Thank you for all you do!!
We are an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited vet clinic located in the 80015 zip code of Aurora, Colorado. Our veterinary hospital provides basic wellness services, including dog vaccines, cat vaccines, routine lab work and examinations for healthy pets- because pets need regular check-ups too!
But our veterinary clinic really shines when it comes to caring for your sick dog, cat or other small animals. Our experienced team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians will start with the most essential diagnostics, and with Parkside Animal Health Center, you get the results on the spot. We can test blood, urine and fecal samples all within our hospital for immediate results. X-rays are performed by hospital staff and reviewed by a veterinarian at the time of your appointment. For any testing that we can’t within our practice, we are still able to get results within 24-48 hours.
Additionally, our team of veterinarians draw on many years of experience to provide most surgical and dental services within our hospital, saving you the cost of going to a more expensive referral veterinarian.
What Makes Us Different From Other Veterinarians: Our Clinic’s Core Values
We want to get your pet feeling better and keep them feeling their best for as long as possible. We treat your pets like members of the family- because they are! But it’s more than that. Our Aurora vet clinic sticks to a set of well-established core values in order to provide the best care for every pet and person we see.
First, we focus on education and science as a fundamental component of practicing veterinary medicine and running an effective animal hospital. We are scientists and we are animal lovers. We reinvest in ourselves so that our hospital staff and veterinarians are on the cutting edge of research in terms of technology, new breakthroughs, and skills. We also reinvest into our veterinary clinic which is clean, modern and efficient. Additionally, we reinvest in the best equipment (like our new therapeutic laser!) so that we can offer our pets and patrons the best possible service.
Second, we are committed to friendship, compassion, empathy, and warmth. We love animals but we also love the people that look after them. We know what it’s like to have a sick pet and we know how hard it can be. But we also know how great it feels to see them get better. Everything we do in our veterinary clinic is influenced by our core values of empathy and compassion.
Third, we value communication, respect, integrity, and honesty. We want to be an informative and honest partner in your pursuit of animal health. We know there is a lot of information and opinion out there and it can get confusing. We pride ourselves on being the Aurora veterinarians you can go to for an honest and upfront answer to every question.
We would love the opportunity to work with you. Give us a call today and schedule an appointment at our Aurora veterinary clinic. Let us show you what a veterinary hospital with a commitment to core values looks like!
Our Top Notch Veterinary Team
Our team of veterinarians are ready to guide you down the path to better pet health and a longer life for your furry friend. Dr. Winton and Dr. Barrow, both veterinarians with our animal hospital for several years and Aurora residents themselves, can help you develop a lasting health plan for your dog, cat or small animal. Whether you need our expertise on behavior issues, dental health, nutrition programs, senior needs or just have a few questions about that “funny smell” or strange new habit your pet may have developed, our team of Aurora vets can get you and your pet on the right track for health. All of our vet clinic staff, not just our veterinarians, love the long-term relationships that grow out of years of consultation with our patients and their families.
Our Pet Hospital’s Approach to Dentistry and Anesthesia
Dentistry is one of the most rewarding, and overlooked, procedures that our animal hospital can provide due to the enormous and often immediate benefits it has in addressing pain in the mouths of dogs and cats. The teeth of animals are very similar to your own and the care required to keep them healthy isn’t so different either. Even though Aurora, and Colorado as a whole, is very animal-friendly we still find that many pet owners in the area are very unaware of how important dentistry is for the overall health of their pet. That’s why at our vet clinic, we spend just as much time educating as doing! We want Aurora to be the best place on earth for pets! And that means making sure every pet owner understands how important dental care is for their four-legged friends!
Our veterinary clinic performs complete anesthetized dental cleanings and examinations including full mouth dental x-rays for every dog and cat. Every patient receives a pre-surgical lab work evaluation prior to anesthesia so that our veterinarians can develop an individualized anesthetic and surgical plan. Throughout the dental, or any anesthetic procedure, your pet is carefully monitored by our veterinary technicians and any changes in temperature, heart rate, respiration, oxygen saturation or blood pressure are immediately addressed. We believe there is no higher priority than the safety of our patients.
Your 80015 Animal Hospital
Our goal is to be your Aurora vet clinic. We take pride in our accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association which puts us in a small prestigious group of only 15% of small animal vet clinics in the US. That puts us in an even smaller percentage when you consider the number of veterinarians accredited in the 80015 zip code or in the entire city of Aurora. When you combine all that with the fact that we are able to provide more in terms of testing and surgical procedures than your average small animal veterinary clinic, you can see why we think we can be your primary pet hospital from puppyhood or kittenhood to senior life for most pets.
With a veterinary clinic like Parkside Animal Health Center in the Aurora community, there is no need to visit a separate dog or cat veterinarian- we work hard to accommodate all types of small animals without any undue stress on any particular species. Our waiting area provides several spaces where pets can be separate from each other, and our goal is to minimize wait times for the convenience of our pets and their families. Additionally, we utilize environmental pheromone support, spacious exam rooms and well-placed windows throughout our veterinary clinic to make it as stress-free as possible. Our goal is to be the best general practice veterinarian in the 80015 zip code and one of the best veterinary clinics in Colorado.
Veterinarians Who Give Back To Our Aurora Community
Our Parkside staff have made a commitment to not only our owned patients but also the homeless pets in our community. We work closely with several rescue groups to get their foster dogs ready for their new homes, which sometimes includes extensive care from our animal hospital. Some members of our team assist with spay and neuter campaigns in underserved areas of Colorado as well as abroad, helping to reduce pet overpopulation in the most desperate of regions. We believe our responsibility to animal health extends beyond our Aurora veterinary clinic, and strive to carry this out in meaningful actions.
We would be thrilled to meet you and your pet – call us or email us to set up an appointment today! We take great pride in the belief that we offer the best service of any animal hospital in Aurora. We have made veterinary medicine our life’s work because we love the animals in our care, and would love the opportunity to work with you and your animals.
