Our Happy Customers

Our Testimonals

  • “You’ve got quite the operation going and your people are even more to rave about! They seem to love their work and carry out their duties both competently and enthusiastically! Many thanks for the long hours and time away from your home.“

    Janice, Montrose, CO
  • “We had a dog that had severe nerve damage to her left front leg. The folks at Alta Vista did everything they could to save the leg for a few days...but in the end it had to be amputated. Suzie (the dog) is now running around happily and hardly seems to miss the leg. Docs and staff were all caring and professional. There were no complications from the procedure (infections, etc) which indicates to me that they performed at the highest level.“

    Robert, Montrose, CO
  • “Dr. Renee Rumrill's vet practice is one of the best I’ve experienced! The small clinic provides personalized services tailored to your pet. My 13 year old dog on chemo needed monthly CBCs to monitor his progress. Dr. Rumrill is compassionate and caring. She took care of our needs during the 4 months we spent in Montrose. We also asked her to do the annual vaccinations on both of our dogs. Her prices were very reasonable and the annual exam included nail trim/anal glands. This ONE OF THE BEST vets we’ve had the privilege of recommending!! All of the labs were done on-site and results were immediate. She faxed them to our veterinarian oncologist in Texas every month. Great continuity of care.“

You see them everywhere this time of year in Montrose; foxtail grasses are ubiquitous, low-growing grasses with wheat-like heads and thrive during wet springs like the one we’ve had this year.  As the grasses dry out, the individual seeds, known as foxtails, fall to the ground. Foxtails have a hardened, woody tip and long barbs pointing […]
