Aspen Grove Veterinary Care Enters Into Final Phase of Facility Expansion

Locally-owned full-service medical and surgical animal hospital, Aspen Grove Veterinary Care, is pleased to announce it has officially entered into the final phases of an expansion plan that started nearly seven years ago at its clinic located on College Avenue.

“As a growing practice, we’re continuously looking at ways to improve our standard of care and patient experience,” said Dr. Bobby Cawthron, Lead Veterinarian at Aspen Grove. “While staying ahead of the latest technological innovations we strive to serve our patients with better facilities and more extensive treatments.”

Since its acquirement by Cawthron in late 2006, Aspen Grove has continued to grow and today employs three full time doctors, one part time doctor, eight veterinary nurses, six client service representatives and five kennel team members. “What has not grown, however, is the physical space of the hospital,” said Cawthron. “Even with three full time doctors, we still only have one exam table in the treatment area. Seven years ago, it wasn’t hard to foresee that our practice would outgrow our current setting. And so, the plan of a long-term expansion project that allowed us to remain in the community we call home came to life.”

Launching the initial planning phase in 2012, Aspen Grove completed development phases one and two of the expansion in 2017. This included opening The Cabins — Fort Collins’ premier boarding and doggie daycare facility — and remodeling to house a feline-only entrance and exam rooms. Currently, the tower situated on the north side of the hospital under development will act as the all-new surgery suite, along with a small area for storage. Once finished in January 2020, Aspen Grove will remodel its existing surgery suite to accommodate a larger treatment area with the addition of three exam/dental tables.

“This progress is the result of a lot of hard work, dedication, and thoughtful decision-making from our entire team,” said Cawthron. “It is also the result of our community’s loyalty to Aspen Grove and all of our other clients who entrust us to care for their pets. We look forward to serving them for years to come.”

Aspen Grove continues to take its role and responsibility within the local community very seriously as active members of Realities for Children, contributors to organizations such as Project Self-Sufficiency, Child Safe, Respite Care, Foundation Music School, Team Wellness & Prevention, Little Plates for Little People, and more. Additionally, Aspen Grove offers free adoption exams for Larimer Humane Society, Weld County Humane Society, Animal House, and Fort Collins Cat Rescue, along with discounted services to local rescues such as the Rocky Mountain Lab Rescue, Retriever Rescue of Colorado, and All Points West GSP.
