Dr. Kari was amazing! My horse Lulu was showing colic signs in the middle of the night. I called the hotline and they had us come down right away! Dr. Kari greeted us at the door before 6 AM and pretty much stayed by her side until she came home a few days later. They have the capacity to run all of the tests and be thorough in figuring out what’s going on. I couldn’t be more grateful for Dr. Kari and the team!!Amy B. (via Google)
The entire team at RFEMC is knowledgable and go above and beyond for our horses. I run a large boarding facility in Aspen and I am always confident with their care. They are available 24/7 for any emergency and are easy to contact on the phone to discuss treatments and problems. We rely on them to manage our vaccination programs, lameness treatments, and any other issues that arise. We are lucky to have this hospital in our small valley!Patti W.
As a referring veterinarian from a primary equine practice in Steamboat Springs, I could not be more happy and grateful to have all the expert and compassionate vets at RFEMC as our resource and referral center. Without fail, my clients are full of praise for the communication, dedication and care their horses receive there. Drs Lamb, Everett and Bevevino are also so supportive of our practice, offering help and advice for cases that cannot be referred and great follow-up and support for cases discharged back to our care. The Western Slope of Colorado is lucky to have them!Dr. Louise Batt
