I know how needed and appreciated I am here, and am so glad I could help so many of you and your pets in the last six years, but the time has come for me to retire from private practice.
I started working for the Dumb Friends League last year and now am the veterinarian at the shelter in Alamosa. Taking care of all of the homeless animals there and the pets here is more than I am capable of at this point in my life.
I’ve realized that I cannot do a good enough job for either while doing both, and that the middle of a pandemic is a dangerous time to be physically and emotionally exhausted all the time.
I have tried to find another veterinarian to take over for me here. So far I have been unsuccessful but will keep looking. If any of you know of anyone who might be interested please let me know.
I will try to be available for anyone in the community who needs help for their pets at the end of life, and until we can find someone to take over here I’m recommending the following clinics:
Alpine Veterinary Hospital in Monte Vista
Alpine Veterinary Hospital in Alamosa
Animal Care Center in Poncha Springs
Central Colorado Veterinary Service - Mobile
Dr Annie Schultz
Thank you all so much, it has been an honor serving this community.
