Happy Pet = Happy Owner

If only our four-legged clients could do the talking. Since they can't, find out what their human companions say about us.

Check out some of our recent work. From formal to funky, we pull off any style!

Chihuahua Receiving Laser Therapy
Veronica from Parker, CO
Pets' Names: Princess and Wiggles
Wiggles (pictured above) is my 3 pound chihuahua who got caught on her chain and was choking. I was met at the door and the staff worked quickly to stabilize Wiggles. They allowed me to stay in the room to comfort her. Laser therapy was done on her to reduce the inflammation and swelling. In seconds she was showing improvement. The doctor and staff show so much love and care for the animals in their care!

In 2010 I had a very hard decision to make regarding "Princess" who was my 15 year old yellow lab. She had been hit by a car and was in serious condition. This emergency was handled in the same fast and efficient way by the doctor and her staff. The doctor went over my options with me regarding her treatment and care. My family was pressuring me to have Princess put to sleep, because of her injuries and her age. Dr. Taullie told me to take my time and make the best decision for Princess and myself, not to let anyone pressure me. Dr. Taullie was so caring; she knew this was very hard for me. She let me sit with Princess and pray about my decision. I did make the decision to let her go. The procedure was done peacefully with no pain. I will always be thankful to Dr. Taullie for taking the extra time with me; especially since this was her day off. I was given a clay paw print before I left to go home.

A couple a days later I received a sympathy card. I, also, received a sympathy card when my father passed away in August of 2013. Wow, how did they know I needed their thoughts and prayers. Dr. Taullie is an amazing doctor; her staff and herself show so much love and understanding for not only their patients but also the patient's owner. I thank you for your heart and for helping me be a strong person. You will always be my veterinarian!

Dog and its Owner
Linda from La Junta, CO
Pet's Name: Shimmie
Hi, being new to the La Junta area, all pet care facilities were unknown to me. When my rescue dog needed emergency treatment, all I could do was get her the help she needed from family who recommended Dr. Tracy Taullie.

Dr. Taullie's care of my friend, Shimmie, included surgeries, on site vet treatment for nearly three and half weeks. Her compassion and love of animals lead me to direct others to this fantastic care facility. In my book, Dr. Taullie and her friendly staff nurtured my severely injured dog back to health and vitality.

If you need a vet for a pet, Ark Valley Animal Hospital is the only place to entrust their care. I have my friend, Shimmie, for many more years of companionship because of these skilled people.

Thank you Dr. Taullie!
