Ski Town Animal Hospital

We are passionate about our furry four legged clients
Fear Free Certified

Take the fear away from your pet! We offer Fear Free veterinary visits for your pet. We eliminate fear, anxiety, and stress, and create an experience that is better and safer for all involved, including your pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Make the Vet a fun place to go!

Dental Services

Dental disease can result in bad breath, painful chewing, and tooth loss. Bacteria under the gums can travel to the heart, kidneys, and liver. A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from a pet’s teeth and to assess the health of the mouth. Your pet will love you for it!

Wellness Visits

Annual wellness exams give you a baseline for what is normal for your pet’s health so you can readily see any changes from the previous year. They lengthen your pet’s life expectancy by addressing issues early, before they become more serious, resulting in them being more difficult to treat. 

Complete Pet Boarding Services

We would love for your amazing pet to come stay with us at Ski Town Pet Boarding. Rest assured, our animal loving staff will take extra special care of your pet while you are away! Enjoy your trip, while your pet is pampered at Ski Town Pet Boarding.

Emergency Care

Emergency vet services are a fundamental cornerstone of our commitment to comprehensive pet care. Your pet isn’t going to take “normal business hours” into consideration. Accidents do happen, and when disaster strikes, that is when you need a trained veterinary staff ready and able to help.

Home Health Care and Hospice

You have chosen to participate in our Home Health Care Program. Before we get started, there are a few things we would like you to know. Our goal is to increase the quality and consistency of the care of your pet in a way that fits your needs.

    This place is awesome! Our doggie got porcupine-d and the folks at ski town took great care of our girl. They were so pleasant, did the job quickly, and at an affordable price. We even got a heart-felt follow up letter in the mail. Highly … More recommend!
  • Avatar Erin Painter ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    The team at Ski Town Animal Hospital was amazing! Jack got a cut that was infected while we were in town visiting. They were able to get us in on very short notice. They were so kind and thoughtful. Jack is better thanks to this awesome … More team! Thank you for being there for us!
  • Avatar Brooke Donlon ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    Dr. Reece and all of the staff at Ski Town Animal Hospital are fantastic! I have been able to get my pet in for an appointment on short notice and have also had to call Dr. Reece after hours for an emergency. She responded immediately … More and helped me through the situation. Dr. Reece and her staff always go above and beyond to make sure my pet is taken care of. Highly recommend!
  • Avatar Tim Hunzie ★★★★★ 2 weeks ago
    My dog met the sharp side of a porcupine. Showed up unannounced... The staff was so great to me. Treated my dog with love. Left a happy customer - plus they had COVID precautions. Go ski town animal hospital!
  • Avatar Daniela Bordian ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    I can't express how amazing these people are!
    Firsts of all I called in advance to make an appointment, get the prices for a general check, shots, registration etc and the lady on the phone took her time to explain each of them in
    … More particular. No rush, no let me put you on hold like forever. :)
    I got a Pomeranian puppy a few months ago and she was having food issues once in a while, she would vomit and had no energy at all sometimes.
    I had to take her for emergency an early morning one day and the staff was so accommodating and so caring. My puppy was barely breathing. I ran to them like a single desperate mom with her baby in her hands asking for help. (sounds funny now, but I was going crazy back then). They brought her back to normal right away; a couple shots and we switched food for and I haven't had any issues since. MY PUPPY is Happy at all the time, along with me! They will also follow up with you and make sure your furry family member is doing great and will advise you with any questions you might have!
    PS: If you loose your tag is just $2 to replace it! Hats off!
  • Avatar Clare Browne ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Dr Reese is great. She and the other staff definitely care about my dog and I feel really comfortable taking her there. Also very reasonably priced.
  • Avatar Ashley Willette ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    We are visiting from out of town and our dog got sick. They were reliably available and provided excellent care at an affordable cost! We highly recommended this place!!! Wish we could use them as our regular vet!
  • Avatar Stephanie Yarbrough ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    Thank you for taking such great care of our pups! I really appreciate how accommodating you were with our anxious pup, and how great of care you took with our old guy having surgery. They both had great experiences, which is rare for vet … More appointments.

  • Avatar Kyrstin Karr ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Ski Town was phenomenal. They were very patient and loving toward my very nervous and excited 4 month old pup. She got a few shots and a wellness check and Finley (my dog) was having the best time with treats and pets through the whole … More experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a new vet :)
  • Avatar Meg Walker ★★★★★ a year ago
    This team is the absolute best! High quality practice with the BEST customer service, and genuine care for our furry family members. We've been through a very challenging medical issue with our dog, and this team has consistently gone … More above and beyond what I've seen any team do for a client, and I've worked for great veterinary teams in the past. We trust this team for great care for our two dogs and cat, and highly recommend that you do the same!
  • Avatar Erin Darby Gesell ★★★★★ a year ago
    I really liked Dr. Reese. We just moved to Steamboat from Omaha, Nebraska and had a terrible time finding a vet in Omaha. I have one rescue who's afraid of other dogs and another who has major stranger danger for humans and both were … More met where they are and treated with so much kindness and respect from the staff. My girl dog had a lump we were worried about and Dr. Reese had us try an anti inflammatory and watch it before just recommending surgery. I was also told my dogs could go off some monthly meds they used in Nebraska because of the different climate and less risk of ticks. I really respect the advice I was given and felt like my dogs' best interests were in mind before recommending surgery or medication.
  • Avatar SkiMom K ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Love this clinic! We’ve had pets for 30+ years but this is the first vet clinic we’ve had in Steamboat. Dr. Reese’s team far exceeds our expectations in every way: easy location, pleasant lobby, clean clinic and courteous, professional … More staff. Every member of this team is kind, caring, patient and gentle with our dogs. They are extremely competent and knowledgeable about unique breed health concerns for both our dogs (pug & border collie). Dr. Reece gives the most thorough physical I think I’ve ever seen and at every visit! She also takes the time to show me exactly what my pet needs and why. They treat our dogs as if they were part of their own family. Dr. Reese even called to follow-up after a recent visit for a chronic injury in my older dog. Ms. Diana has incredible patience with our anxious young pug and couldn’t be more gentle. To top it off the fees and prices are very reasonable. Will definitely be our permanent vet in town! Thanks everyone.
  • Avatar Erik Gunderson ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    After going trying multiple different vets I’m happy to have found a great place to bring my dog. Dr. Reece and her staff go above and beyond with their services and are always there to help when you need it. Highly recommend to any pet … More owners!
