★★★★★ 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.

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.

I have been taking my dogs, past and present, there since they opened. I board my dogs there, too. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.Betsy C.Betsy C. ★★★★★ 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. ★★★★★ 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 ★★★★★ Both of our dogs are coming here. Our English Bulldog Louie has been coming here for 4 or 5 years. They are always very helpful and caring. Our dog has an ear infection and whimpers if you touch his ears. We are going on the trip overseas and needed to get him in as soon as possible, which was hard due to our schedules at work and a baby at home. Today, even though they are so busy and already had all appointments booked, they acknowledged the situation and helped us anyway. My boy is sitting in the waiting room, waiting to be seen!

Dr. O'Neil and Christen were absolutely wonderful. My dog is terrified at the vet but they took the time to let him get comfortable with them so he had a better experience. I honestly can't get over how great they all were. Truly appreciate them!Hannah S.Hannah S. ★★★★★ Dr. Dan and his staff were very kind, attentive and thorough examining our dog and cat.

So glad to have found this practice!Miranda S.Miranda S. ★★★★★ Clean facility with friendly, professional staff. We had our first appointment yesterday and were super impressed with the great people here (from front desk to tech to vet)! Checking in was fast but thorough and we felt heard and informed by the end of our appointment. Billing is clear and upfront. Check out process was super efficient as well. Overall highly recommended and looking forward to continuing care here!Sandi B.Sandi B. ★★★★★ My cat has been in and out of the ER for weeks. We called animal hospital of Colorado Springs and got in the same day. We got answers to my very sick cat and got transferred to AERC for hospitalization.Brandalynn W.Brandalynn W. ★★★★★ We have had great experiences taking our dog here for care! Would recommend:)Mackenzie S.Mackenzie S. ★★★★★ I can't express enough how wonderful the entire staff is at this hospital. From the front desk to the techs. We had to euthanize our kitty and everyone was very caring, sympathetic, and helpful. They made it as comfortable as possible for me and Cheetah. If you have to go to a pet hospital I recommend this one highly.Wendi F.Wendi F. ★★★★★ Fantastic staff and an overall great experience for myself and our pupShannon HShannon H ★★★★★ The best vet practice I have encountered. I came to AHCS because my local vet closed and this was the closest I could find that was taking new patients. It is a 2 Hour drive from my home but, after two visits, I will probably keep my pets here, even though I may be moving to a new location that has many vet options. Yes, I am willing to drive 1-2 hrs to have my two pups in this practice. The staff is outstanding and I have confidence in their expertise. Both pups adore the vet who interacts with his animal clients in such a friendly way.Kate K.Kate K. ★★★★★ Dr Dan is the best!Rich SRich S ★★★★★ Great Dr and staff. Minimal wait time. Cost was less than expected. (Hope it's like that every time). Love it!Please read the message next to the candle on the front desk. It asks that you respect others in the office going through a loss. We didn't notice it until the end of our visit. We were a bit loud and felt bad for the person & pet the candle was lit.Julia D.Julia D. ★★★★★ Caring compassionate people. Techs are great. Ashley got on the floor when she saw that our dog was scared. She calmed him down. Outstanding animal husbandry. Veterinarians went over everything, expanding on any subject that we asked questions about.5 star service. Hard to find anymore.Jerry B.Jerry B. ★★★★★ I brought my pittie in for an allergy shot and as we walked through the door she started having a seizure. We didn't even get through the second door before 2 girls and her vet came up, grabbed her, and took her to the back immediately. Another girl grabbed me and immediately put me into an exam room so I could regain my composure without a waiting room full of people watching me. They brought in blankets and water for my girl, while we waited for the test results. They constantly came in and checked on not only my girl but myself as well. I cannot recommend this location enough! We will miss them when we leave for our next home!Caitlin H.Caitlin H. ★★★★★ They are such a friendly place! Great service and fast.Nicole B.Nicole B. ★★★★☆ I enjoyed working here. Good peopleSamantha K.Samantha K. ★★★★☆ Love this vet, but will consider switching if they don’t eventually open back up for Saturday appointmentsKrissy Q.Krissy Q. ★★★★☆ Great place! Friendly staff. Very thorough, not a money grab eitherBelle S.Belle S.js_loader

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.
