If it is your first time visiting us, please bring or have your prior veterinarian send over any documents regarding your pet’s health. We also ask for your pet’s current vaccination records. You can also call us before your appointment, and we can get the records from your previous vet.

We do our best to get you in as soon as possible to see our veterinarians. We understand that you have a busy schedule, and we want to make sure that you and your pet get the care they need.

If there is an emergency, or if our office is extremely busy, the wait time may be longer.

We do accept CareCredit. If you have pet insurance, we can provide a detailed bill that you can submit to your insurance company.

We do not offer payment plans at Ponderosa Veterinary Clinic. Payment is due at the time of service.

If there is an emergency during business hours, please call our direct phone line, and we’ll do what we can to get you seen ASAP.

If you have an emergency when our office is closed, we recommend you call a nearby animal hospital that is open 24 hours. We recommend Powers Pet Emergency for 24/7 ER Care; their number is (719) 473-0482.

After your appointment, we will be happy to print out a copy of your visit or any of the records we have on file for your furry loved one.

If you are unable to make it to our Colorado Springs vet clinic, you’re more than welcome to give us a call or send us an email to request your pet’s medical records. We can also fax them over.

We recommend bringing your pet in at least once a year for a wellness exam! Even if your pet is in good health, we look over heart and lung health, eyes, ears, skin, and any changes in weight, behavior, and physical appearance regarding lumps, swelling, and more.

We check for things you may overlook on the surface to prevent any possible issues from developing. It is also a great time to ask your veterinarian any questions that you might have.

If your dog or cat is older, we recommend bringing them in for a wellness exam more frequently than once a year. Preventative care will vary based on your animal’s age, breed, and lifestyle.

Of course! We offer microchipping services in Colorado Springs for your dog and cat. Call us or fill out our contact form to schedule your appointment, or click here to learn more about our microchipping services
