WE ARE OPEN, BUT DON’T EXPECT TO COME IN

At this time, we do not feel COVID-19  is a risk to our pets but the risk to humans may quickly become a risk to our ability to provide them care!  We need your help and cooperation in protecting our community and staff so Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine  may remain open. 

In order to try to remain open to care for pets, we will temporarily restrict in-person consultations.  Our goal is to provide the same level of medical care for your pet. We understand that this will be challenging but we feel this is needed to offer our services.   There is no need for an at-risk or self-quarantined person to bring their pet in person.   

Our internists will perform a review of the history and concerns over the phone or video conference.  We will then have the pet admit through a secure room, while you return to your car. A physical examination will be performed and diagnostics and treatment plans prepared and reviewed.   Once completed, the internist will review the findings and make recommendations. Payment will need to be made by credit card or Care Credit or Scratch Pay through our website prior to completion of the appointment or patient’s admission into the hospital.  

Do not worry about the details; once we have made your appointment, you will receive specific instructions by email.  

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.

Rainey's Family, 2019
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.
Cat's Family, 2019
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.
