A love of animals and caring communications with their owners.

About Dr. Margot

Having always loved animals, Dr. Margot detoured into a starting career in public relations/journalism before returning to school to study in veterinary medicine. However, that communications background has always helped in her veterinary work in educating owners on the best care for their pets. After graduating from the veterinary school at Colorado State University in 2000, she completed a 13-month small animal internship at Friendship Hospital for Animals in Washington, DC. Dr. Margot returned to Colorado in 2004. A lifetime goal of opening her own veterinary practice was met when Park Hill Veterinary Medical Center opened in July 2011. Dr. Margot’s medical interests include Wellness/Preventive Medicine, Dentistry, Nutrition, Marketing and Client Education. The practice has grown and flourished since opening with the support of our great neighborhood and community. Dr. Margot is married to Chris, our hospital manager. They have two active and lovely daughters, Savannah and Caitlin; two cats and three dogs. When there is any spare time, you might find Dr. Margot with her nose in a book, behind the camera or digitally scrapbooking.

Powerful and mighty ruler of Park Hill Vet

About 'Hendrix'

Don’t let my formal attire fool you, I am a very friendly and approachable fellow. I do take my role as the powerful and mighty ruler of Park Hill Vet quite seriously. I can get a bit grumpy when I’m hungry—I’ve been here a while now and my minions haven’t caught on that I require endless amounts of food at all times! When I’m not demanding food, I can be found perched in various places surveying my kingdom, loudly voicing my opinions and welcoming visitors. The humans here tell me that I sometimes “overstep boundaries” by trying to go in to exam rooms and attempting to calm patients that don’t seem overly fond of me. If you don’t see me wandering freely and meowing for your attention, I may be temporarily exiled to my throne in the kennels.
