Park Hill Veterinary Medical Center is where your pets matter. Our commitment is to deliver the best medical care to your special family members throughout their lifetime—from the routine to the unexpected. We aim to offer the best veterinary care for your pets in Denver.
As partners in ensuring a healthy, active and long life for your pets, we strive to deliver the highest quality services with a loving touch. Our healthcare team is dedicated to providing personal attention to the concerns of each individual pet.
Veterinary hospitals accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) hold themselves to a higher standard. They are passionate about pets, and keeping them healthy is their number one priority. They strive to always deliver excellent care, because your pets deserve nothing less. Park Hill Vet earned its initial accreditation from AAHA in November 2011 and passed its recertification in 2013 with flying colors—something sought voluntarily by only 15 percent of North American veterinary practices.
All the staff are friendly and professional. Every time we come for a visit the staff is so patient to address all my questions and concerns. They always give us lots of options for care concerning our budget. I feel like Park Hill Vet truly cares about my furry babies.
The staff here is excellent from the minute you walk in the door. The nurses and the doc genuinely care about the well being of my lil man. They talk through everything from living at high altitude to breed characteristics. I always come away feeling confident I understand his health.
My furry kids always get treated with care and respect. Park Hill Vet offers very reasonable prices and we've never felt that we are being upsold for additional services like we have with other vets.
Preventive medicine, including regular hands-on examinations is the best way to ensure your pet’s health. Every pet should be examined at least once yearly until age seven and then twice yearly thereafter—remember they are aging faster than the years assigned, with every six months being equivalent to 2-3 years of aging. Your veterinarian will help to tailor your pet’s care based on age, lifestyle, risks and more. Vaccinations are an important part of preventive care—not every pet will need every vaccination, but all pets need some protective vaccinations based on their individual needs and risks.
Emergencies happen – we have no way to predict or prevent, but are available to treat and support during our business hours. Our skilled staff, in-house laboratory and digital x-ray capabilities, mean that we can quickly evaluate your pet and get them started with appropriate care. Afterhours, we refer to area veterinary emergency facilities.
A good start in life is essential to a lifetime of good health. When you add that wonderful new bundle of fur love, we’ll help to make sure that the new kitten or puppy is set up for proper vaccinations and preventive care. We’ll make sure you have the essentials for good nutrition, home care and training as well.
Age is not a disease, but aging does cause many changes. Senior pets (over age 7 for most pets) need to have regular exams at least twice yearly and regular screening diagnostics to evaluate major organs such as the kidneys or liver for changes. We want to ensure that as owner and veterinarian we are working together to maintain a healthy, comfortable and as long as possible life span for each pet.
Proper dental and oral care, both professional veterinary and at home, can truly extend a pet’s life—and make sure that there is no unpleasant cat or dog breath. We’ll guide you in the how’s and what to use for home dental care as well as educating you on professional veterinary dental cleaning, assessment and treatment for your pet’s mouth. Our digital dental x-ray system allows us to evaluate below the gum line to make the best recommendations for your pet.
We perform routine and non-routine soft tissue surgeries such as spay, neuter, cystotomy, mass removals and more. For specialty procedures and orthopedic procedures, we can coordinate with an experienced surgeon to come to our hospital to perform or refer your pet to one of the area’s many experts.
Radiology includes x-rays and ultrasounds. Our digital x-ray system means that we can take almost instantaneous high resolution images of a pet’s chest, abdomen or limbs. Ultrasound is a non-invasive technology that allows us to see organs in great detail and can be used to identify bladder stones, tumors and abnormal organ structure. We work closely with a board-certified radiologist to coordinate our ultrasounds and also use a rapid telemedicine service to evaluate x-rays when needed.
The ticker sometimes needs to special care. We use the mobile services of “Rocky Mountain Veterinary Cardiology to come to the hospital when needed for patients for a cardiac evaluation, echocardiograms and more.
Laser and Acupuncture offer two modalities of complementary medicine that both can have significant positive effects for a patient. Laser is a form of photo-therapy using a hand-held device. Laser has great anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects, can speed healing and reduce scarring. We use it to treat wounds, ear infections, arthritic pain, skin issues and more. Acupuncture also offers much to help pets, but its most common use is for pain management and mobility improve. Ask today if any of these services are appropriate for your pet.
Do you get a little stressed and worried at the doctor’s office? Well, our pets certainly do and we are constantly working on handling ideas and other strategies to make every cat’s and dog’s visit less stressful. We may not be able to calm every fractious pet, but we can help make all visits easier for pets and owners. Ask today what we can do to help you with your pet’s visits. This article offers a good place to start.
Much like it does for humans, massage therapy has extensive physical and emotional benefits for animals. It is not simply a way to “pamper” your pet, but instead, it is a way to improve your pet’s overall health and emotional well-being. Pet massage may be especially beneficial by easing pain in animals suffering from arthritis, muscle spams and old injuries. It also aids in speeding up recovery time after a surgery or injury and can reduce anxiety in pets effected by emotional trauma. Our own staff member, Mara Tingley, is a Nationally Board-Certified Massage Therapist and Certified Veterinary Technician. For more information, visit Mara’s website.
Dogs must be on a leash, in a carrier or, if small, carried, when arriving to and departing from the hospital. Cats should arrive and depart in a carrier for their comfort and safety. This policy is in place for the safety of your pet and all of our patients.
in 2012, Dr. McGuire applied on a whim for a job in Adelaide, South Australia – and moved Down Under 5 weeks later. For the next four years, she worked in Adelaide and the surrounding rural countryside, taking care of dogs, cats, and the local fauna, including kangaroos and the occasional koala. The summer of 2016, Dr. McGuire returned to Denver – bringing along Aussie husband Kev, toddler son, and neurotic Border Collie, Diesel.
Whenever there is a quiet moment – if such a thing exists with a toddler – Dr. McGuire likes to make elaborate meals and desserts to enjoy with Aussie wines, knit, hike, snowshoe, and all other outdoor fun that Colorado offers.
