Read What Our Clients Say

    January 15, 2019; my husband and I and our Lab Kelsey were enjoying a few days of skiing and relaxing at our condo in Dillon.  Unfortunately about 6:15PM Kelsey got into some Rat Poison and devoured it before we could get to her.  We called the veterinary hospital in Silverthorne and were directed to leave a message for the emergency vet on call.  Within 12 minutes Dr. Court called us back.  She had us come to her office Farmers Korner Veterinary Hospital on Highway 9.  After determining the kind of poison Kelsey had ingested; Dr. Court gave her  shot to induce vomiting and then gave her Vitamin K pills to take for 30 days.

    We are so thankful for the quick response we received and the great care that Dr. Court gave Kelsey.  The next day the clinic called to check how Kelsey was doing. They also forwarded all of the treatment paperwork to our regular vet in Denver.

    I would highly recommend Farmers Korner Veterinary Hospital. 

    Thanks again Dr. Court!

    We had an emergency with our dog on a Saturday evening. Dr. Court was on call and we brought our dog to her. Her professionalism, compassion, kindness and frankness in reviewing all options was invaluable to us and our dog. Her knowledge was outstanding as well. We cannot recommend her highly enough. A wonderful, competent, compassionate individual.

     can't say enough about the amazing women at FKVH! I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else... thanks a million! They always go above and beyond and take the needed time to go over everything. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

    We were on vacation in Breck and needed to have our dog seen last minute. They fit us in on a Saturday and Dr. Court, the tech and receptionist were all wonderful! Thank you for a pleasant experience!

    Eric Ido-Bruce

    I have taken my dog to this clinic and Denisa for several years now. I find Denisa to be very thorough and willing to do what it takes to make the situation or circumstance better. She offers suggestions but is not pushy. She really seems to care and I will continue to go to this clinic regularly and recommend others to it.
