We are OPEN!

We are coming back online and are OPEN again, hurray! We have very limited staff due to quarantine, but don't worry everyone is doing ok. Please bear with us as we are only able to do essential services for now while we have a limited staff. What is an essential service? Call or text us 970-524-3647 and we will walk you through and get you taken care of as soon as possible! 

We have limited appointment slots so if you are willing to drop off your pet it will be easier for our staff to be able to work at their pace. We should be back to normal by Tuesday next week!

 
Don't forget we are going to continue dental month and the dental special through all of March! Free dental exams and 10% off all dental services. Contact us today to get your appointment scheduled!

Thanks for visiting our website. We have tried to create the valleys' first truly informational website for pet owners: there is a ton of stuff on the site (of course we also promo the hospital, but hey, we built the site you know). The links above will provide you with a photo tour of the hospital as well as explainations to various medical procedures commonly performed on pets at most animal hospitals. Click on any tab above: there , you will find information on pet diseases, breeds, poison control, animal welfare organizations as well as info on different careers in the field of veterinary medicine and some fun, goofy sites. Look around, have fun, send us an email, request prescription refills, etc.!

Our goal at GAH is to take great care of pets to allow you full enjoyment with your pets. Our hospital policy is an open one; you will always be welcome to watch us work on your pets (unless there is a surgery, emergency or very gory procedure occurring).

Gypsum Animal Hospital provides services to Gypsum, Eagle, Edwards, Glenwood Springs, Wolcott, Minturn, Vail, Avon, Eagle-Vail, Bond, McCoy, Dotsero, Carbondale and Basalt and all of Eagle County Colorado.

We also want you to know that if there is anything we can provide for you, or your pets...PLEASE do not hesitate to call us or simply stop by. We are always available. And remember, when it comes to the health of your pet, there are no stupid questions!

Thanks for visiting...don't be a stranger...and enjoy the rest of the website.
