WELCOME TO SCVIM
Southern Colorado’s Leaders in Veterinary Internal Medicine
Diseases in our pets can be as complex as our own diseases, and veterinary medicine is becoming as complex to navigate as human health care. At Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine (SCVIM), our team of veterinary specialists is here to guide you through every step of the process with your pet’s critically ill or complex conditions. From your first experience on the phone with our friendly client care team, to working directly with our veterinary specialists and nurses during your visit, we are devoted to helping you and your pet with complex illness through compassionate communication, non-invasive diagnostics, and supportive treatments.

What Do Our Clients Say About Their Experience with SCVIM?
After three years of dealing with reoccurring melanoma post removal, I decided to seek support from SCVIM for my dog. The staff immediately recognized my dog was very vet-phobic and soothed her with plenty of treats and lots of love. Dr. Beck Ringdahl-Mayland far exceeded any expectations I had for veterinary care. He was exceptionally supportive, knowledgeable, and able to provide me with the pros and cons of all available option. I was expecting a quick consult and instead got a full exam, tons of knowledge, and Dr. Beck’s undivided attention. I regret not seeking the support of SCVIM years ago but would highly recommend Dr. Beck and his team to anyone with the unfortunate challenges surrounding canine cancer.
The staff as a collective were extremely patient, helpful, thoughtful, and most importantly capable. I have no doubt in my mind that you all are the BEST in your field. Our visit and follow up care/phone consults have been exactly what we did and will need to resolve Rainy’s Health issues and concerns. We drive 2 hours to your clinic because we believe it is the best, the awesome and caring staff make it even better!
The Internal Medicine team has been terrific. My cat is very anxious and full of torti-tude. Despite that, SCVIM nurses and doctors both have always been able to handle her easily and with kindness. AND they listen and stay familiar with my cat’s medical history. Truly a dream team.
Incredibly grateful your wonderful practice exists. We know every time one of our animals comes in, they’ll be given the best possible care, with knowledgeable and gentle staff.
The front desk staff was wonderful. My dog, Claire, is very shy with strangers and they handled her wonderfully, making the entire process just a little less stressful for Claire.
