  • Welcome!

    Arapahoe Animal Hospital – for small animals, birds, and exotics — was founded in 1954 and originally located a few blocks west of our present Main Hospital location.  In 1969, our hospital moved to its current Main Hospital address at 5585 Arapahoe Ave. in Boulder — and our innovatively-designed building was then surrounded by green open fields!

    Our Main Hospital (and surrounding neighborhood) grew steadily over the years.  In 2007, we opened our second hospital location, Arapahoe Animal Hospital – Downtown, at 1730 15th Street in Downtown Boulder.  Our two hospital locations share the same patient medical info data base — and our same great staff!

    Today, Arapahoe Animal Hospital, in two convenient locations, is a full-service, state-of-the-art medical facility known for its veterinary excellence and warm, compassionate care.  We’re here for you at all ages and stages of your pet’s life – seven days a week – with day and evening hours (and convenient parking!).  We offer complete medical, dental and surgical services, advanced diagnostics, preventative/wellness care and vaccinations, senior care, and rehabilitative services including Class IV laser therapy and acupuncture.

    Our Main Hospital stands on one full acre of land, with over one-third acre of tree-shaded play and exercise yards for our outstanding DOGGIE DAY CARE program – and our Boarding “guests.”  We offer PET BOARDING for all small animals, birds, and exotics — and our devoted staff will provide TLC and a “Home Away From Home” for your pet while you’re away! 

    Arapahoe Animal Hospital has been an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) since 1970.  We are proud to consistently maintain our AAHA-accreditation – requiring strict attention to specific detail in all areas of our hospital, regular AAHA inspections/evaluations, and meeting the highest standards in all medical and safety areas.  AAHA-accreditation is a distinction that only 15% of veterinary hospitals in the North America can claim!

    Our daily goal has always been… to provide the finest quality veterinary medicine for our patients and clients — with compassion, excellence, and friendliness in every aspect of pet care we offer. Stop by and meet your Boulder veterinarian today!

    • Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in our Howl-Ween Doggie Day Care/Boarding Costume Contest! The choice was far from easy, and many of our staff members had a difficult time choosing! . Our contestants included (in photo order): Becky the cowgirl, Daisy the devil kitty, Genie the devil pup, Genevieve in the sombrero, Paco & Lefy the western pups, Rocky the little Batman, Koko & Koda the bunny rabbits, Kaly & Coda the flower pups, & Monkey the little skeleton Poodle! . We believe every pet deserves a reward for their Halloween costumes (we all know wearing costumes isn't their favorite pastime 🤣), which is why we have a special treat at our Main location for EVERY pet that participated in the contest - a treat bag filled with Hills Jerky strips & Royal Canin Dental treats for the pups and Royal Canin Dental treats & Greenies treats for Daisy the kitty! . Thank you all for making this a Howl-Ween to remember! 🎃🖤
