This has been my folks vet for 5 animals over the last 20+ years, and I can see why!Shannon LShannon L β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I'm a new client here. The place I had been going to for years closed their vet facility, and I had been looking for a new place that felt right for just over a year now. We've had some unpleasant experiences between my last place closing down and finding Rocky Mountain Small Animal Hospital.This was the first place that I had a good feeling with over the phone, so I decided to bring my kitty in for an exam.Everyone was friendly, gentle, and loving with her. One of the last places I took her had her so scared and stressed that she came out drooling on herself, which has never happened.I am so happy I found this place! Meeps left so calm that she fell asleep on the ride home instead of meowing through the drive. :)I came in with pre-dental lab work from a different facility, a facility that I did not feel comfortable returning to. I had a few questions on the results, and rather than adding a bunch of expensive tests, they were honest and informed me it wasn't necessary at this time.This place is a breath of fresh air from my interim between my spot closing down and all the unpleasant experiences I and my kitty have had. I am so excited to have found our new spot! Thank you RMSAH 😊CourtneyCourtney β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Great vets.Steve J.Steve J. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… We have been with Dr Tancher and Rocky small animal hospital since 1991 and the care we receive has been professional, caring and loving towards our family. Our pets have received the best care and when it became β€œthat time” everyone were so grateful to have been a part of our family and pet’s life and cried with us. So thankful to have his team taking care of us.Craig W.Craig W. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I love Rocky Mountain Small Animal Hospital.

( whether or not they like it lol)Swede G.Swede G. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… What a nice Vet, very understanding and acknowledgeable. Took the time to listen and stayed late to take care of my dog. This is a great place for all your pets needs.Steven S.Steven S. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… 2022-09: I worked here under Dr. Tancher many, many years ago. He was an amazing guy with the desire to help any animal that couldn't speak for themselves. The staff I worked with, and encountered by simply being a patron with my own pets, was great. I realize this was years ago. However, I still have friends in the area who bring their pets here still to this day. So I feel pretty confident with my rating.Katrina H.Katrina H. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Great vet careSusan P.Susan P. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… We have been patients of Dr Tancher’s since he opened this practice and we would recommend anyone to go here. Everyone is kind and they LOVE all animals.Suzanne P.Suzanne P. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… They have a vet with expertise in hamster health. He kindly ruled out the worst causes of why my daughter's cute hamster experienced some hair loss, and gave us knowledgeable advice on what to do about it. He was also the only person who has held our hamster and didn't get bitten. Very gentle!Bethany K.Bethany K. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Top notch vet. They also provide boarding.No O.No O. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… This was my first experience with Ricky Mountain Small Animal hospital. Dr. Hanson was incredibly kind and caring towards my cat and myself. The staff is very friendly and professional. I will be going back to this office for any future vet needs for my animals.Melissa K.Melissa K. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Called around with some questions I had concerning my five year old black pug. The gal who answered the phone was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. What really sold me was she referred to my Marty as kiddo. Never had any children of my own, not even a dog until i was 58. He is literally my child. Looking for a new vet, not happy with the one I have, found it!Rafael D.Rafael D. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… I love RMSMAC!

I highly recommend.Elizabet N.Elizabet N. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Dr. Clark is wonderful. I have always had a great experience at this clinic!

She is an amazing provider and we trust her whole heartily to care for our dogs!BlockfeldBlockfeld β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Dr. Bean is the best!J 4.J 4. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Friendly staff and very helpful vets. They truly have gone above and beyond to help my dog and guinea pigs.Kevin N.Kevin N. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Wonderful, caring, compassionate people. The entire staff here is incredible, but Dr. Hanson and Dr. Clark in particular go above and beyond to provide quality care for my family's animals. When it came time to make some tough decisions for our elderly cat, Dr. Clark listened to us and worked with us to make sure that we were making the very best choice for our little buddy. Not once have we ever felt pressured into a procedure or medication (something I cant say about many other vets in the area), and the hospital works hard to ensure that you have all the knowledge you need to make informed decisions. Truly a first-rate clinic.Tahoe D.Tahoe D. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Clean, great staffSan D.San D. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… They took great care of our cat! Could not have asked fro more.Ned H.Ned H. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Awesome! The entire staff was engaged, helpful, and loving to us and our doggy.William P.William P. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… ::Edited to five stars::New experience,Dr Bean is a credit to his profession and the only vet that will ever take my boy to. Dr Bean is down to earth, very realistic and an upfront honest professional. I can't emphasize enough how comfortable and relatable he is with every visit whether that be a major concern or minor. Dr Bean genuinely seems to care about each individual patient.I have never felt rushed or unappreciated over the course of the last four years. My first review of Rocky mountain was after a very impersonal and rushed visit I had with a previous vet. I decided to take a recommendation from a friend and request Dr Bean specifically. My experience with him solidified my decision to only go to Rocky mountain small animal hospital for all my veterinary needs.At no point with Dr Bean did I ever feel like I was being pushed into an unnecessary procedure or medication. He was very upfront about all options that I had for any need for Jax (My 85 lb boxer). Without going into specifics there were, on more than one occasion, recommendations for expensive procedures from other vets at that office that he quickly dismissed and deemed unnecessary.When we take our pets into a vet we need to feel comfortable and confident that the vet has our pets best interest at heart and that we are not just another customer or outlet to gain more in sales for services etc. The down to earth, friendly and upfront nature that Dr Bean brings to the entire experience leaves me reassured that the options recommended to me are exactly what my pet needs. I can't recommend Dr Bean enough. I would absolutely request him specifically if you choose to take your pet here.Old Review 3 stars:Great service and a variety of services. The female veterinarian I had was a bit cold and not very personable. It was very clear that the 'upsale' tactics are drilled into the conversion at every opportunity.J E.J E. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… Great with cats! Our cat is a fiesta, picky cat who hates vets and other cats. She loves going here! Dr. Bean is great and the staff is friendly and helpful.Travis B.Travis B. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† Very caring and also flexible when our plans changed.Steve U.Steve U. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† I have been taking my dogs and cat here for a few years now. Every vet I see is very patient and caring. They are always very helpful and caring and also take my budget restraints into account. They help me figure out the best route of care for my animals in the most cost-effective way. They always call and follow up quickly after the visit. I really like bringing my animals here. Gave them 4 stars instead of 5 because I do think they are pricier than some other places but honestly, I think it is worth it. We will continue bringing our animals here. I have seen 3-4 vets here and they all have been great. All of the vet techs are wonderful as well. I also think the front desk is very organized and I have been able to get in same day sometimes when needed.Maggie G.Maggie G. β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜† Went at 6 am and had to wait till 8 to see the doc because at 7 day shift comes in and does rounds. They don't exam the pet in the exam room, they take them elsewhere to do the exams.Janice N.Janice N.js_loader
