Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency and Rehabilitation Hospital is owned by a cooperative of 25 local veterinarians, including 7 staff veterinarians. Many of the local veterinarians also share in the ownership that provides them with after-hours emergency care, ongoing critical care, and rehabilitation services for their patients. Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency Hospital was started in 2003, and was initially open nights, weekends and holidays only, but in 2008 it went to a 24/7/365 operation. Rehabilitation services were added in 2010, prompting a name change to Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency and Rehabilitation Hospital. Since then, rehabilitation services have grown exponentially, and in partnership with cutting edge emergency services, sets FCVERH apart from other animal hospitals.
