Front Range Animal Hospital is a full-service veterinary hospital conveniently located in downtown Monument, Colorado. We’ve been serving the Tri-Lakes area since 1971. We treat all kinds of dogs and cats, and also see some rabbits, ferrets, and “pocket pets”—guinea pigs, rats, mice and hamsters. We have a fully-equipped hospital and offer a wide range of medical, dental and surgical services. Our staff consists of five doctors, nine technicians, and four receptionists.
Emergencies and Illness
If you have an emergency during our business hours, come right over and we will work you into our schedule. If possible, call ahead (719-481-3455) with the nature of the emergency so we can be prepared for you. If your pet has an illness, call for an appointment. We can usually schedule your sick pet with a same-day appointment.
After Hours Emergencies
If your pet is ill or injured when we are closed, we recommend that you take him to the Animal Emergency Care Center, just 15 minutes away at 5520 N. Nevada Avenue, Colorado Springs. Their phone number is 719-260-7141. The AECC is equipped with the latest in emergency care equipment and is fully staffed on nights and weekends, enabling them to provide our patients with the best in after-hours care. They are also able to answer questions over the phone regarding your pet after-hours.
Routine Surgery and Dentistry
We perform surgeries and dental procedures Monday through Friday. Pets having a procedure with anesthesia are scheduled with an admission appointment between 7:30-8:00 a.m. The procedures are done in the morning, and in most cases, pets are sent home the same day between 3-5 p.m., as they are much happier at home. External sutures, when necessary, are removed in 14 days. In an effort to help control animal overpopulation, routine spays and neuters are performed at near cost, as a public service.
