We Welcome You and Your Pet to Colorado Canine Orthopedics

COVID-19 Has Disrupted Our Lives but We're Here to Help

Colorado Canine Orthopedics is open for all canine elective and emergency orthopedic surgeries including ACL repair (TPLO), total hip replacement, orthopedic trauma, small breed disk herniation, etc. We offer free telemedicine appointments for clients in our region of the country. It's easy: just call our office at 719-264-6666 and we'll walk you through the rest. If possible, we'll ask you to make a short cell phone video to email and we'd love to see X-rays if you have them.

When a hands-on physical examination or X-rays are needed, we offer curbside, concierge appointments. We also offer same day consultation and surgery and due to the benefits of epidural and nerve block analgesia, most pets can undergo surgery and be back in the comfort of their home that evening.

Of course, we are asking all clients who have traveled by air within the past 14 days, had contact with a known positive individual or are experiencing fever, chills, cough or shortness of breath to please postpone scheduling an appointment with us. We also request that everyone within our hospital wear masks. If you do not have one, we'll supply you with a sterile, handmade mask to use and keep.

Pets have never been a more important part of our lives!
