Our Standard of Excellence
Since 1989 Arrowhead Animal Hospital, P.C. has received the highest accreditation possible from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) . This organization sets standards for veterinary hospitals in all areas such as cleanliness, medical procedures, surgery practice methodology, medical records, nursing care, both animal and staff safety, equipment levels and maintenance.
- Well-educated staff
- Clean and odorless facility
- Current medical library
Our behind the scenes work is what we feel makes ours the best practice in our community.
For example, our hospital includes modern surgical facilities with state-of-the-art anesthetic techniques and equipment, constant patient monitoring, and the performance of a wide variety of orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries, and dental procedures. After surgery, each of our patients is placed in our intensive care area, where they are continually observed during their anesthetic recovery.
In addition, our "in-house" laboratory allows us to quickly perform blood, urine, and parasite testing.. When necessary, we use university and veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics.
Other important diagnostic testing that we frequently employ includes: x-ray, ultrasonic imaging, electrocardiography, echocardiography, and echo-guided biopsies.
We frequently use the services of outside specialists including regular visits by surgeons, radiologists, and ultrasonographers.
We also consult and refer difficult cases to local specialty practices and the Veterinary College at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. Critical care cases are transferred to critical care centers in Denver.
We have a roomy, quiet private parking lot safely located behind the hospital away from the street, our spacious manicured grounds are a perfect place for you to walk your pet or for your children to play.
We make every effort to insure that all fees are fair and reasonable. We encourage you to discuss charges with us, before services have been rendered and written estimates with a fee range can be provided upon request. We know quality pet health care is expensive. A significant portion of our proceeds is continually reinvested in new equipment, supplies, hiring dedicated and experienced staff, and continuing education for the professional staff: all to give your pet the best care possible. We accept cash, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, American Express, and CareCredit.
CareCredit is an excellent way to finance unexpected medical emergencies with convenient and affordable monthly payments. The application and approval process takes only 5-10 minutes.. Personal checks with current name, address, telephone number, and proper photo ID are also welcome.
