Dr. Renee Rumrill graduated from Colorado State University’s prestigious College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in 1996. She began her career in mixed animal practice, treating many different types of animals from dairy cows to rabbits. She narrowed her focus to companion animal medicine when she found that she was most happy treating animals that are valued as family members. In 2011, she moved from Eagle, Colorado, to assume ownership of Alta Vista Animal Hospital. She practices medicine with the philosophy that every animal matters and with the understanding that there is no other bond like the one that we share with our pets. Dr. Rumrill’s furry family includes dogs Bilbo, Buddy and Luka; cats Stripe and Dinah; rabbit Bigwig and Morgan horse, Sunny. In her spare time, she and Sunny explore the amazing beauty of Western Colorado.
