    -Chris and Mark from Aloha, OR
    Pet Name: Farley

    While visiting family in the Northglenn area, our little Lhasa got sick. Our clinic in Oregon is owned by VCA so we were so lucky to find VCA Thornton. The entire staff was welcoming and so very helpful with our little dog, Farley. Within a few days, after the medication, he was back to his ole self. Many thanks!

  • Impressed and highly recommended

    -Doris from Lakewood, CO
    Pet Name: Fritz

    I took my Cairn all the way from Lakewood, as I have heard good things about this VCA hospital. The drive was worth it! I was welcomed by very friendly staff and my Cairn enjoyed all the attention he got, tail wagging throughout the visit! I received recommendations and counseling in regards to preventative care for my 5 year old Cairn, which I found very informative. I choose to go with the Leptospirosis vaccine, as our two dogs are outdoors, off-lead daily on long walks and this is a bacterial disease which transmits to humans. I was happy to see my invoice, as my first office visit was free, and so was the nail trimming...a job I really dislike! Thanks so much - we will be back!

  • Thank You

    -Mallory from Denver, CO
    Pet Name: Riley

    What a wonderful group of people! I don't think I will ever take my dog to any other vet. I expect people working in the veterinary field to be knowledgeable, which all the staff at VCA Thornton are. However, on a regular basis, the staff and doctors exceed any prior expectations I may have had of not only being knowledgeable, but friendly, caring and helpful. They take the time out of their day to call or check in, and they truly go the extra mile to make me and my dog feel comfortable, and informed. If you are looking for the best care for your pet, look no further. Thanks to everyone at VCA Thornton for all you do!

  • First rate service

    -Bailey from Arvada, CO
    Pet Name: Snoopy

    I moved here from another state, and was specifically looking for a VCA Hospital. I found the staff at Thornton to be very knowledgeable and friendly. Whenever I have had any questions, they were more than happy to answer, with accurate information. Their pricing is fair, but competitive. I would definitely recommend them.

  • A Long Drive for a Good Reason

    -sue hurwitz from denver, CO
    Pet Name: Suzy Q, Molly and Gordy

    Dr. Miller has cared for my dogs for close to 15 years at All Creatures Animal Hospital and VCA Park Hill. When she moved to Thornton (a great move for her) I was determined to follow her no matter what the inconvenience. That's how good she is and how I value her care, her friendship and her judgement of what needs to be done. Her surgical skills are well known. She is thoughtful, caring, professional and dedicated. What more you you ask for in the person who is caring for your pets. I wish we were granted the same good care from our own physicians. Although I don't care for the 25 mile drive, it is well worth it.

    Also, the support staff also deserves kudos for their responsiveness and concern.

  • One of the Best

    -Jeanne from Thornton, CO
    Pet Name: Yogi

    Pet Image We want to thank Dr. Miller, Dr. Fleming and the entire VCA Thornton staff for taking such good care of our Yogi Bear.

    The minute you walk in the door you are met with a very friendly and compassionate staff. My granddaughter Alex and I love this place! When my Mom moves here next spring, I can now show her the right place to bring her pets when they need care.

    Thank-you from the bottom of my heart for being honest with me about Yogi's situation and making my decision easier. We miss her dearly but we know we did the right thing. The cards you have sent to us meant so much and were truly comforting, it is so appreciated.

    -Heather from Westminster, CO
    Pet Name: Willow, Snoops and Sophie

    I moved here to Colorado in January 2011 and the team at VCA Thorton has cared for our three pets as if they were their own. Dr. Avon was a fabulous vet and Dr. Flemer is proving to be just as wonderful. Thank you to Erin, Mondona, Angie, Vivian and all the other wonderful team members at VCA Thorton.

  • Thank you

    -Dayna-Rae from Thornton, CO
    Pet Name: Yeti

    Pet Image Dr. Avon and the team at the Thornton, Colorado location (104th and Colorado Blvd) are amazing. Everyone in the office is incredibly welcoming and takes care of our Yeti. We have taken our furry family member to this hospital since we first fostered then shortly after adopted. Thank you for caring so much! I’ve attached a few pictures of her wonderful recovery after the dental procedure. She’s doing great.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist.

In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you.
