I look forward to seeing all of you again to get the immunization shots for her.Granville P.Granville P. ★★★★★ We moved here in August and have been needing to establish our two fur babies at the vet. Yesterday I took my very anxious 3 year old dog into her first appointment along with my toddler. The front desk staff held onto my dog while I wrangled my toddler and filled out the check in paperwork, which was incredibly helpful and kind. Once we made it to our room, we were greeted by Hope who was also so welcoming, kind and understanding with my crazy toddler. We saw Dr. Toni O’Neill and she was wonderful! They caught an ear infection in our dog and got her right on some antibiotics, as well as gave me options to help her anxiety. It was such a wonderful experience, and I highly recommend this animal hospital to anyone! We will certainly be coming back with our cat next:)Carly HCarly H ★★★★★ Knowledgable, friendly and caring place to bring your animals!

Dr Christy is amazing!!AerialFlickAerialFlick ★★★★★ I came here because my dog was having issues with itching and no vets in the Pueblo/Cañon City area were accepting new pet patients. Dr. Patterson and all of the vet techs have been awesome. They keep my puppy, Puppy, happy and healthy and up-to-date with all of her shots. I’m a first time puppy owner so I always come in armed with questions and concerns and she (Dr. Patterson) always takes the time to listen and get everything addressed before I leave. As long as I’m living in this area, I’ll come here for my veterinarian needs.Amanda T.Amanda T. ★★★★★ Love this vet clinic. I have been taking my dogs, past and present, there since they opened.

Any emergency need they are the place to go!!Laura A.Laura A. ★★★★★ Such an amazing animal hospital! All of the staff was friendly and welcoming! They got our dog buddy in the same week we called and took their time with him! Thank you all for being absolutely amazing! We will definitely recommend you to everyone to take care of their fur babies!Andrea F.Andrea F. ★★★★★ We absolutely love Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs! We have been seeing Dr. Dan since moving to Colorado 8 years ago. Dr. Dan has been with us through good times and the worst times when we have had to put our animals down. Dr. Dan takes his time to answer questions and has so much empathy. He is always supportive and answers the tough questions like “what would you do if it were your pet.” I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Dan and how personable and knowledgeable he is.Staff are super responsive via phone and email when I need info for insurance or just have a question. Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs is a little pricier but we are happy to pay that due to the amazing care they get at AHCS.Bonnie R.Bonnie R. ★★★★★ Dr. Dan and the staff is AMAZING! We have taken all of our animals here for years and have never had a bad experience. Our dog Tater had to have a leg removed and chemo due to cancer. I couldn’t have asked for a better Vet guiding us along the way and the knowledge they shared with us. Would recommend to anyone with a 2 or 4 legged family member!Rylee B.Rylee B. ★★★★★ Long story short, my local veterinarian recommended that I travel and take my dog to AHCS for an ultrasound after a year of blood-testing and head-scratching. The front staff was welcoming, organized, and prepared for our arrival. Our technician, Allison, was caring and thorough preparing us for our visit w/the doctor. Dr. Bhea was amazing! She came in prepared, having read through our files, and listened to our story, gave feedback and recommendations, and justified why. Later that evening, after office hours, I rec'd a call from Dr. Bhea, informing me of other thoughts she had regarding our situation. Thank you Dr. Bhea!We had an ultrasound appointment early the following morning, and again, everybody was prepared and efficient, and took the time to listen. We had to wait for the ultrasound results, and Dr. Elizabeth called to discuss what was found; again, after hours. The conversation never felt rushed! Thank you Dr. Elizabeth!All of this was happening the week before and the week of Thanksgiving. The following week, Dr. Dan followed up w/a phone call. We went through all of the tests and diagnoses, and recommendations w/options.Through these weeks, the doctors and staff were so diligent. I highly recommend Animal Hospital of CO Springs! If you live in the area, you are very fortunate to have such a fine and dedicated group of doctors and staff. Thank you to all at AHCS for the rigorous care for Quinn's good health!C V.C V. ★★★★★ We have 2 senior fur babies. 1 is a corgi/Shepard mix, and the other is mini schnauzer. They got a complete check up, blood work, shots, nails and anal glands done and we still had money in the bank when done. Found out thru the blood work both my girls have pancreatic issues. Dr Christy put them on a special diet, antibiotics, pills for gut health, and x-rays to our corgi mix. Dr Christy has called 3 times to just check on Indy and Lil. She is a fantastic vet, and you can tell she loves her patients (owner too). Both my babies do not do well at the vets office. However, they went back with the tech without having any melt downs. Surprised me!! Usually, my girls don't go with anyone unless it is myself or my husband. If I could give Dr Christy 1,000 stars, I would. The techs are outstanding, the cost is acceptable, the office and the rooms are absolutely spic and span. I highly recommend the vets here at Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs. Thank you to the staff and the vet for being so amazing!! 🙂shelly W.shelly W. ★★★★★ The fast action of the staff literally saved my little chihuahuas life.SeanSean ★★★★★ Took our dog JoJo in because he was experiencing bad stomach problems. My husband and I were so worried!! When we got there the place was extremely clean and the receptionists were sweet and got us into a room quickly! (Was very nice cause our dog was nervous) the nurse came in and asked some questions and then we got to speak to the vet. Sadly I cannot remember her name but she was FABULOUS. So kind, smart, really seemed to love and help animals. She put our minds at ease and made the process so nice. She diagnosed him, we got a sheet of paper of recommended treatments and medicine so we could choose what was best based on our budget, which I found so amazing I’ve never had that happen before! It’s been a couple weeks since then and JoJo is back to his normal self! We couldn’t be happier with our service at this location! We’ll for sure be bringing him back for regular check ups and shots and bringing our cat there as well!abby D.abby D. ★★★★★ We love our new vet clinic. My sister and I took our 2 dogs to Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs today for a get-acquainted visit, since we've just moved to the Springs. Ashley, the tech, made us and our dogs feel very comfortable. She asked all the right questions to get to know each dog and recorded the info clearly. Dr. Toni gave each dog a very tender, but thorough physical exam. She found patellar luxation in my shih-poo's left rear leg (that previous vets hadn't found) and recommended a joint supplement. My dog was very anxious and whimpering when we got there, but was completely relaxed by the time we left, even after a vaccination. The team is very skilled, personable and loving with our dogs. We're so glad we found them!Alison M.Alison M. ★★★★★ They were very patient with our aggressive dog!!Manuel M.Manuel M. ★★★★★ My dog loves to come here. Everyone is super nice and it is clear that they really care about their patients. We just started our journey at Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs, but with the quality care here I think we'll be very happy with our choice!Ben H.Ben H. ★★★★★ I love working with any of the vets from Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs. They always have timefor my questions and I feel respected as a pet owner. Always professional and kind.Kylie G.Kylie G. ★★★★★ AHCS is an amazing place! The vets and staff are very professional and knowledgeable. They get to know you quickly. We are very pleased with the service we receive for our diabetic cat.Michael F.Michael F. ★★★★★ Dr. Christy and her vet tech were absolutely amazing. Not only were they welcoming but also displayed a lot of patience with our very nervous pup. They made us feel comfortable and explained every step. I’m so pleased that we found Dr. Christy and looking forward to our next visit with our other pup. 10/10 recommend!Kimberly W.Kimberly W. ★★★★★ Excellent staff and Dr. Dan is an amazing, caring vet! He listens and is thorough, and is knowledgeable.Bradly G.Bradly G. ★★★★★ The Doctors and staff there are very caring about the pets and the family. My dog gets wonderful care.Norma Saint J.Norma Saint J. ★★★★★ Words can't describe my thankfulness for Dr. Dan Muelhaupt and his staff. We started as clients at AHCS in February of 2023. My 11 month old puppy has had numerous issues, (and many vet visits to AHCS) since we adopted her in January of 2023. Each and every time that I bring her in for an appointment, or call the office with a question, the staff is always incredibly kind and professional. All of the Veterinarians and Techs on staff are wonderful and knowledgeable. Dr. Dan is who we regularly see, and he is a phenomenal veterinarian. He is thorough, patient, and amazing with my Husky. I couldn't be more pleased with our experiences here, and we will absolutely be clients for as long as we remain in Colorado.Sara F.Sara F. ★★★★★ We have been bringing our pets here for 7 years and will continue to see Dr. Dan and his team! We recently had a major scare with our 3yo lab mix, and they were able to get her seen immediately, and she's already on her path to wellness! We are very impressed with their efficiency and treatment plans. Thank you to everyone at AHCS!Lexi ILexi I ★★★★★ We have been using this office since 2019 when we came to Dr. Dan for a second opinion on our sick pup. He knew right away from a physical exam and review of his information that something was seriously wrong. He was right, our boy had an untreatable cancer. He was euthanized at an emergency clinic, but Dr. Dan followed up with us and offered his condolences.We made the switch for our second dog to this office after our experience and the rest is history. We are always met with kind, compassionate providers and staff. When lab results come in they call and answer all of your questions. Finding care for your furry friends can be hard, but this office will go above and beyond, so look no further.Sarah S.Sarah S. ★★★★★ Such a friendly and caring veterinarian clinic!Glen S.Glen S. ★★★★★ Takes great care of my furbabies, scheduled us same day for an urgent need when our dogs leg swelled up double the size from a spider bite whereas we sat outside for hours outside of an ER vet trying to be seen.Paige P.Paige P. ★★★★★ Dr. Dan along with his staff are the compassionate and caring veterinary I've been with.mark W.mark W. ★★★★★ Everything greatMarisa T.Marisa T. ★★★★★ Have been taking my pets to this vvet clinic for 8 years. Excellent experiences always. Love Dr. Dan and staff professionals. Very kind, professional and just great people. Recommend highly.

From the receptionists, to the vet techs, to the vets.I highly recommend Dr. Dan Muelhaupt for dogs.rklover13rklover13 ★★★★★ Very good experience with this place with my kitties.Jason V.Jason V. ★★★★★ Amazing place after so many bad ones!!!!PJFPJF ★★★★★ There are no words to describe how thankful i am for everyone there. June 7 was the first time the staff laid eyes on Angel(my cat)…i thought she was just constipated and would leave with me. She didn’t…her liver had gave out. Time stood still then my whole world imploded. When i tell you that they took good care of my baby i mean you can look but you won’t find better. I love all of you, God bless and keep you and your families safe.Sidenote; One dad, i was missing Angel all I’d accomplished was tears. i went to check the mailbox. This was waiting on me. Thank you so so much. You are all angelsAnitra D.Anitra D. ★★★★★ Kind caring staffMary Habermehl (.Mary Habermehl (. ★★★★★ If I could give them 100 stars I would. Unfortunately we had to put my 17 year old cat down, and every single person we dealt with (from the vets to the techs and everyone in between), they were patient, gentle, kind, comforting, and let my son and I take all the time we needed before, during and after the euthenasia. We got a keepsake made of her paw print and can't wait to pick it up. Very sad experience seeing my kitty in so much pain, but they encouraged me, informed me, and were incredibly gracious throughout the whole ordeal. I hope Kimber is up in heaven chasing butterflies, climbing trees and being her spunky, sassy, sweet self 🥺 I miss her so much 💔 thank you to your whole staff for truly being there for us. It means more to us than you'll ever know!Larisa T.Larisa T. ★★★★★ These folks are amazing! Their staff remembers you visit to visit.Dr Devin and Dr. Dan are very knowledgeable and listen to the clients points and then collaborate on the care of your pet. Rather than demanding that XYZ is done.Office: you ladies are all amazing. Sorry I can’t remember your names but so far everyone I’ve met is a sweetheart with a servants heart!Thanks for helping us save our boy!RJ CRJ C ★★★★★ The staff are professional and Dr. Dan is very knowledgeable and honest veterinarian. My daughter and I share four cats and three dogs and would only take our fur babies to the best veterinarian and importantly "affordable". Thank you to all the staff and Doctors. ( Bruno, Roxy and Garfield)Gloria R.Gloria R. ★★★★★ Took my very spicy cat to them and had the best experience they, listed to me about my concerns and took amazing care of my cat. 100% recommend!!!Jay M.Jay M. ★★★★★ Got me in next day O’Neill helped kahlua out great and was very kind but strict.Kyle R.Kyle R. ★★★★★ Super great experience!caitlin A.caitlin A. ★★★★★ Like most pet owners, our dog is our child - and we wouldn’t settle for anything less than the best care for her and AHCS provides that! We have been extremely pleased with this vet since becoming a new patient after moving to the area about a year ago. We always have had doctors that are great listeners to our concerns, and very helpful at explaining all options in terms that are easier to understand than medical language sometimes. Always have friendly service from the techs and those at the desk in person or on the phone too. Can’t recommend them enough!MaddieMaddie ★★★★★ I went to take my friend's dog. They were kind, efficient, and transparent at all times. Everyone on duty that day truly helped my friend get through a tough moment.Hans G.Hans G. ★★★★★ Can not be more happy. Took our very high energy/anxious dog here for an injury and the vet we saw was phenomenal!! Took the time to let the dog calm itself before examining, explained the injury until we fully understood what was wrong and didn’t force treatment, instead prescribed progressive treatment that gives us time to save money AND more importantly will keep our dog comfortable in the meantime. Seems like a small gesture or just “a part of the job” but makes a world of difference for the onwers as well as the dogs future experiencesThank you guys so much 💚Kristen A.Kristen A. ★★★★★ Very friendly staff, Dr. get on dogs level which I love ❤️Shirley S.Shirley S. ★★★★★ Always amazing care. I take my senior kitties here and the doctors are always so attentive and empathetic.Edit:Also I have to shout out Dr. Dan!

The Doctors are awesome! I love that the doctor herself calls to check on my baby! Thanks guys glad to be a client.Mary S.Mary S. ★★★★★ We couldn't get into any of the vet clinics in Canon City, and one recommended the Animal Hospital in Colorado Springs. We were told for almost a year that our dog had a yeast infection where, in reality, she had a skin disease and almost went septic. The hospital not only cleared and cleaned her up but gave her meds as well as recommended an affordable shampoo to keep her maintained. We are beyond amazed at the difference in her! She looks alive and healthy, her hair is growing back on her legs and is back to her feisty self! We will be using the vet, dermatologist, and dentist associated with the Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs from now on!Dead D.Dead D. ★★★★★ Excellent vet. I've been to a lot of them and this is one of the best. Most of them are money grabbing joints but this place is fairly reasonable for the excellent care they provide.Taylor G.Taylor G. ★★★★★ Good place for my first experience as a dog parent. My dog had some time to adjust to the smells. The doctors and techs were very friendly and explained all costs and alternatives. They did say he could go at anytime so he's not afraid next time he goes Great place can't wait to take him again!MK S.MK S. ★★★★★ This is a great place to have your pet checked, if you are wanting to visit a vet for your beloved pet, please do consider visiting Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs, the staff and vet are really helpful and kind.Mallows G.Mallows G. ★★★★★ Always professional 💯Great reminders 💯Caring and knowledgeable staff 💯Fast and painless service 💯EbayEbay ★★★★☆ I enjoyed working here.

I would recommend Animal Hospital to anyone I know, or do not know. The staff is so friendly, and they do not only treat my dogs like family, but they treat me like family as well. I love taking my dogs there and would not take them anywhere else.

Christopher D.

We’ve been taking both of our dogs here for a few months now and you can tell how much they care about the pets they see. As a pet owner they always give you a clear understanding of your pets health and how to best take care of them. I would definitely recommend them!

Beth S.

So friendly and professional, Jasper loved Dr Dan and was well taken care of. We’ll go to Animal Hospital of Colorado Springs for all of Jaspers needs.
