Best Vet Experience Ever
Kyle Blackburn from Thornton

Yesterday (Thursday 5/20) at 6pm I took my dog Bruno in to get his shots updated so that I would be able to board him this upcoming Memorial Day weekend. This was the first time I met with Dr. Pete DeTolve in person. Dr. Pete was by far the single greatest veterinarian who I have ever had the pleasure of taking my dog to. He asked me questions regarding the day to day activity and lifestyle of my dog Bruno (who suffers from two torn ACL injuries in his back legs), and most importantly he made me feel comfortable telling him the truth about what I do in an effort to help Bruno and what Bruno is capable of doing on his own. Previously when I had spoken with other vets about this injury I felt as though I was being judged for being unable to afford the suggested surgical procedure that they recommended for Bruno, however that was not the case with Dr. Pete. Dr. Pete listened to me, offered advice and alternative options, other than surgery, to improve Bruno's day to day life. Most importantly to me, he made me feel as though he respected the relationship I have with my best friend, Bruno, and made me feel as though I was a good pet owner. While Dr. Pete was explaining pet insurance options, pain treatment options, medication options and their individual benefits/potential side effects, and providing me information on a CARE plan, offered by the VCA Thornton vet center, that would allow me to pay on a monthly basis for Bruno's vet needs, rather than having large payments each time I bring him in. Dr. Pete got two extremely helpful, gentle, and kind vet techs to come in and trim Bruno's nails (something that I was absolutely baffled by how willingly Bruno allowed them to do). If nothing else had happened the entire vet visit, this would have been enough to make me continue to come back, as the simple fact is...Bruno does not like getting his nails trimmed...and the ability of these vet techs to keep him calm and perform this service with absolutely no issues was astounding. I plan on moving in the near future, but I am certain that I will continue to come back to see Dr. Pete for all future vet visits. I cannot thank the entire staff enough. YOU GUYS ARE ALL SIMPLY AMAZING!
