Aspen Park Veterinary Hospital, located in Colorado, provides veterinary care to small animals with an emphasis on meeting the needs of pets with chronic medical conditions. The practice veterinarians are Dr. H. C. “Doc” Gurney DVM, CNLP, and Dr. J. Watson DVM. Together, they provide standard medical and surgical care, x-rays, in-house laboratory services, and alternative therapies such as acupuncture.
One important emphasis of Aspen Park Veterinary Hospital is care of the chronically debilitated and/or ill patients, the aging and those who have not been well served by standard medical care. Dr. Gurney and Dr. Watson believe in exploring every possible option in order to find an acceptable solution to a pet’s medical needs. For example, they are both very conscientious of the need to avoid drug-induced secondary medical problems in animals that are already in a fragile state of health. Their goal is to make sure pets get the quality of life they deserve. Depending on the specific needs of the animal, this could include nutritional counseling, bio-energetic medicine, Class IV infrared therapy, or Frequency Specific Low Level laser therapy.
Aspen Park stays informed of the latest developments in veterinary medicine by participating in professional organizations such as the American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, American Academy of Sciences, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The hospital supports activities such as the Big Chili Cook-Off that raises funds for local firefighters, and helps to support the Intermountain Humane Society, the Evergreen Humane Society, and the Conifer High School Robotics Club who has assisted with rehabilitation of patients as documented in local newspapers and television.
