Best Veterinarian in Colorado! Wonderful animal clinic with extraordinary care Dr. Miller saved our puppy and we could not be more pleased with the care our Beagle puppy received from Rising Sun Animal Care. Here is our story….
For Father’s day I got my husband two Beagle puppies. We had only had them two days before one of the puppies started puking clear fluid. I immediately found the first vet that could get us in the soonest. In hindsight this was a huge mistake. We were very scared and hearing the word “Parvo” made matters worse.
We agreed with the veterinarian that she should be on IV fluids and hospitalized for three days. The vet called the next morning to tell us how well she was doing and that we could pick her up at 3pm. This was very confusing as we had been told they need at least 48 hours of fluids and need to be eating and drinking on her own. We picked our puppy up and the next morning she had a relapse. The vet in Brighton told us that “It is like when you get out of the hospital you need your sleep.” I then told her she hasn’t had any fluids or eaten in 12 hours and parvo dehydrates them and they die. She said well the very soonest we could even get you in would be 4:30pm and we really can’t make any promises. When inquiring about IV fluids she said I am not looking that up right now.
After hearing all that I added every rescue I could find on Facebook in the Denver area and got numerous recommendations for Dr. Miller at Rising Sun Animal Care. We immediately called and she said drive over as soon as possible. Her office staff was very knowledgeable about parvo and made us feel so comfortable. She took our little puppy in her arms and looked her in the eyes and asked her how she felt and gave her a kiss. She said she would take good care of her and she did. The next day she also squeezed in my sister’s dogs and my other dog, for a total of five dogs, in for vaccinations to make sure they were all current on their parvo vaccinations. She also let us know about heartworm in the Colorado area and put them on preventative medication.
Her office staff is wonderful. Vicky at the front desk is so sweet and accommodating. We really enjoyed talking to her on the phone and in the office. Her technician Kathryn was also extremely knowledgeable and helpful with cleaning tips for parvo and even baby tips for human babies. We also loved how when you leave you know what is going on and you are never left in the dark. When you leave you know what the next steps are. Dr. Miller has spent hours explaining care plans and offering helpful tips and advice. The only reason our puppy is still alive is because of Dr. Miller and her staff. She is the most caring and compassionate veterinarian that I have ever met. She is excellent and will be very direct and honest with you. We will only be using Dr. Miller as our vet and I highly recommend that you do the same!
