Veterinary hospital to open
Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies will officially open Aug. 13 to provide 24-hour emergency care in Castle Rock.
Megan Rector, doctor of veterinary medicine and owner of Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies, said in a news release that 58 percent of households in Castle Rock and Castle Pines own a pet, yet the nearest emergency and specialty hospital is approximately 20 miles away.
At 774 Maleta Lane in Castle Rock, the 10,000 square-foot hospital will be staffed by five emergency veterinarians and a host of specialists providing cardiology, surgery and internal medicine as well as other specialty services in the future.
The hospital will contain three surgical suites, a dedicated anesthesia recovery room and separate areas for dogs and cats with cat television in the dedicated cat area.
In addition to providing medical services, Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies will host a variety of pet and animal education classes for the community, and ongoing continuing education classes for veterinarians.
To celebrate its opening, Veterinary Specialists of the Rockies will host an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Aug. 12, featuring activities, food, vendors and Colorado Avalanche mascot, Bernie. For more information, visit VetsoftheRockies.com.
