When you are looking for a primary care veterinary clinic, you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at The Valley Veterinary Hospital in Rifle, CO have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient. Call 970-625-5035 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.
Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed. Our doctors will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to The Valley Veterinary Hospital for service.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Our doctors can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, our doctors may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery. For further information on specialist and specialty centers, please click here.
When you arrive for your appointment:
At this time, we are still providing curbside service. Please remain in your vehicle with your pet when you arrive and call our office at 970-625-5035 and our receptionist will transfer you to a technician that will take your pet's history over the phone. A technician will bring your pet inside for the veterinarian to examine and the veterinarian will call you to speak with you directly about your pet's visit.
We will begin allowing 1-2 people into the clinic to accompany their pet in their appointment starting April 15th. However, because we are still in the midst of a pandemic, will be requiring all clients to follow appropriate safety protocol, even if they have received a vaccine. Any clients that enter the building must wear a mask for the duration of their appointment and cannot display any symptoms of COVID-19. If you have
been in recent contact with a person that has tested positive for COVID-19, please let us know immediately so we can reschedule your
