“Dr. Williams at Gunbarrel Vet Clinic in Boulder is very thorough and takes her time to provide options for pets (she helps all 4 of ours). The clinic doesn't work on small animals but she made an emergency exception and saved our tiny hamster, Bumble. She had such serious injuries that I had signed euthanasia papers, but Dr. Williams managed to save her. Bumble made a full recovery.” – Emelie S. Griffith, Broker Associate

Diagnosing a specific neurological disorder may be very difficult. This specialized clinic in Englewood will guide you and your veterinarian in the decision-making process.

“When all the other vets told us our baby had a brain tumor, Dr. Lane at Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology took the time to investigate and discovered an auto-immune disease that was attacking her brain tissue, causing swelling and seizures. He has looked over our family ever since and helped Furli to make a full recovery. Here she is with her sisters at Christmas.” – Miranda Hofer, Commission Specialist and Accounting Clerk
