Read What Our Clients Say

  • "The staff is really nice and so helpful with everything when it comes to my fur baby. Pricing is similar to other vets in the area and I feel like they go above and beyond to make sure your animal is taken care of."
    Lori S.
  • ""Thom and I have been bringing our dogs to Arvada Flats for over 20 years. The staff at Arvada Flats have cared for and loved our pets through sickness and in health. When their time came to cross the rainbow bridge the staff treated us and our animals with love and compassion""
    Thom and Diane K.
  • ""I have to admit that Rich and I are definitely dog people. We have a very deep appreciation for that special connection that exists between humans and their beloved four legged friends. Over the past 14 years or so, our two Pugs enjoyed outstanding veterinary care to the point that when we would take walks near the Arvada West Clinic, our two Pugs would start to redirect their walking toward the clinic as if that was really “Their Home”. The caring staff at Arvada Flats fully understands and appreciates that connection as well. Dr. Bassett and Dr. Larson in particular, consistently provided special medical support to each of our Patient Pugs. We've always felt that not only were our dogs an integral part of our own family, they were welcome members of the Arvada Flats family as well. Their technical staff steadfastly delivered the most effective and caring treatments possible to our furry friends! We cannot thank them enough for all of their TLC.""
    Donna and Rich F.
