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 by a group of 22 local veterinarians to provide quality after-hours care for their patients. The hospital was purchased from a local veterinarian (who was also one of the buying group) and renovated into an emergency hospital. Initially, the hospital was open nights, weekends and holidays only, but in 2008 it went to 24/7/365 operation. Rehabilitation services were added in 2010, and have grown to be a significant part of the hospital’s services, so in 2011 the name was changed to the Fort Collins Veterinary Emergency and Rehabilitation Hospital. Ancillary services such as surgery, internal medicine, cardiology and radiology are also offered.
