  • Happy Birthday

    -Jeff, Tricia and Leica from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Leica

    We have the most fun, energetic, silly and smart dog in the world! VCA Aspenwood Animal Hospital has been there at our best with a fun staff that gives Leica treats and comfort. They have also been there at our worst when we needed an appointment right away and good advice that eased our minds and pocketbook. Dr. Katie is exceptional. We appreciated the card from all the staff celebrating one year of Leica! What an awesome team.

  • Love VCA Aspenwood

    -Paige and David S. from Arvada, CO
    Pet Name: Sage and Hopper

    Pet Image We've been going to this place for about 9 years now. We've seen most of the vets here - they are all great, - but Dr. Hedlin is the absolute best. She calls to check in after treatment, giving VCA Aspenwood a real small town feel. She even called to tell us about a fun trick she wants us to try to teach our smart but extremely anxious little blue healer, determined to make him not completely hate going to the vet! We have moved twice since we started going here, each time further and further away, but we will continue to make the trek to VCA Aspenwood. It's that good! Thank you Dr. Hedlin and staff!

  • Always a Great Experience

    -Cindy from Englewood, CO
    Pet Name: Duncan and Oliver

    We have been using VCA Aspenwood for years. Dr. Laura sat on the floor with and and cried as we had to put our Bearded Collie to sleep several years ago. They have always been very caring and empathetic. Our two current pups go there and are always treated extremely well...both from a health check up standpoint as well as boarding. We would never go anywhere else and have recommended VCA Aspenwood to numerous people.

  • Amazing Staff

    -Brianna B. from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Stryker

    I used to live 5 min from VCA Aspenwood, now I am about 30 minutes away with easily 20 Animal Hospitals between my new place and VCA Aspenwood. I come here for the care Dr. Kelly and staff have provided to my beastly German Shepherd. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Dr. Kelly and staff have been wonderful and exceptionally knowledgeable for the 2.5 years I have been bringing my dog in. I have recommended this Animal Hospital and Dr. Kelly to anyone looking for a new vet clinic.

  • Thank You

    -Dawn Kearns from Thornton, CO
    Pet Name: Lexi, Sam, Lena

    I now live 25 miles from VCA Aspenwood but I keep coming back because Dr. Laura Hedlin is awesome. She has provided exceptional care to my pets over the years and I can't thank her enough.

  • Dr. Grillo is awesome

    -David Urban from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Bowie

    My Black lab met with Dr. Grillo and her staff today and she did a fantastic job. My dog lives her and the staff does a great job!

  • Worth the Travel

    -Melissa Brennan from Platteville, CO
    Pet Name: General Beauregard

    After moving to Platteville CO, I had the privilege to adopt a Mastif /Lab mix puppy. Aspenwood had always been my selection for pet care in the past, and I decided that I could not trust anyone else to care for my new baby. Yes, Aspenwood is well worth the long distance travel. They truly are the BEST staff anywhere. I would not trust my baby with anyone else! Thank you Dr. Hedlin and staff for taking such great care and TLC with my baby!

  • Extraordinary Care and Compassion

    -Lori Kavanagh from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Jackaroo

    We moved to Denver about two years ago and the first thing we did was start looking for a vet for our 8 year old Aussie, named Roo. It was our good fortune to be referred to Dr Julie Kelly and Dr. Isabel Grillo at VCA/Aspenwood. Both Drs as well as the entire staff at VCA/Aspenwood are kind, compassionate and friendly, giving equal care and attention to pet and owner! Until recently, our visits have been routine in nature but Jan and February 2014 have been anything but routine. In January a family emergency on the East Coast required an extended boarding stay at VCA for Roo and he literally became part of the VCA family while he was there, often sleeping under Dr Kelly's desk and keeping her Aussies company. At the end of February, Roo required emergency treatment/surgery for a life threatening infection. The treatment, follow up care, communication, concern and support from ALL at VCA Aspenwood has been outstanding and we are so very, very thankful!

  • Wow

    -Rachelle G from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Tigger, Samantha and Oreo

    My husband and I moved here from California about a year ago now and in march we took a trip back to visit. When we lived in California we took a trip to visit family in Arizona and left our three cats at a cat "hotel" that seemed amazing. These were the most incompetent people I've ever met and they even put baby oil on our cats to quote- "make them smell better" and when we went to pick up out cats one had what you call a URI basically the cat got so stressed he got sick. So when we had to leave the cats to go on a trip again I was very edgy. When I got back I was amazed at how well the cats where taken care of. I felt so much more comfortable knowing that our cats where being cared for by the same people that gave them their check ups. Not only was I relieved but Aspenwood was surprisingly cheap for boarding our three cats. I would not go to any other place for my little furry bunch. :)

  • The ENTIRE staff was AMAZING...

    -M.M. from Denver, CO

    I felt I needed to try and spread the word about THIS clinic. My mother & I have had our amazing dog since I was in the 7th grade... I'm now 27.

    My mother & I could clearly tell that our wonderful dog's lifework was done and it was time to let her go. We called this clinic first thing in the morning and they were able to get us in straightaway.

    They immediately took us to a PRIVATE room where they had a blanket ready for our dog. They allowed us ALL the time we needed to prepare for what was about to come. They came in and explained EVERYTHING that was going to happen and that we could even stay with her throughout the procedure. t

    They even allowed us to bring in one of our dog's favorite toys in an effort to comfort her. And EVERY staff member that came into our room to take our dog's weight, etc... EACH one of them told us before they left the room, "I'm so sorry for your loss."

    The respect that they showed not only to my mother & I, having gone through something like this for the first time, was just impeccable. And the respect they showed for our dog was beyond words. Our Doctor called our dog, "Angel"... and allowed us more time after she had passed away.

    They took a paw print for us, at NO extra cost. And when it was time to take out beloved dog to be cremated, they treated her little body with absolute dignity.

    I TRULY cannot say enough about the ENTIRE staff at this Aspenwood location. We even received a card from the clinic sending their regards.

    And to ALL who signed, my mother & I cannot thank you enough. Especially you, Dr. Julie. You really helped such a difficult time seem not quite so unbearable. Dr. Julie even hugged me after everything was over. I don't think many other places would do that.

    I'm thankful my mother & I, as well, as our dog, were able to find such a stellar staff as THIS clinic and I hope others are fortunate enough to be able to bring their pets to this trustworthy and caring staff.

    When the time comes and I'm ready to get another dog, THIS clinic will be the ONLY vet looking at my dog. I just can't say enough about how amazingly wonderful ALL of you were and I cannot thank you enough; ALL of you... And neither can our sweet dog. Thank you again, Aspenwood Staff.
