Woman's hand and cat's paw form a heart.

“Dr. Melanie… is the BEST”

My dogs have been coming to Dr. Melanie for 18 years. She’s the BEST.

Wilma A., Littleton, CO

“Dr. Jeff… really cares about his patients”

Dr. Jeff was phenomenal! He really took the time to explain his thought processes, walked us through diagnostic test options, was honest about what tests were not needed at that time, discussed treatment options, and took the time to answer any questions we had. He is a fantastic doctor and really cares about his patients.

Alexa F., Castle Rock, CO

“Dr. Christen… explained everything so well”

Dr. Christen is fantastic and explained everything so well. Everyone makes you feel like family. This is the only place we will take our animals.

Chad S., Castle Rock, CO

“Dr. Ivy was very honest and knowledgeable”

I had an excellent experience. Chelsea, the tech, was amazing, and Dr. Ivy was very honest and knowledgeable as to what was the right course of treatment for my dog. The entire staff was warm and friendly which was so nice to come into being brand new to the area. I am so happy I have found Cherished Companions to be our family vet!!!

Rebecca R., Castle Rock, CO

“Always answers all our questions”

Cherished Companions always answers all our questions, even researching traveling to Canada with our kitties.

Bruce Y., Parker, CO

“Very caring and gentle”

Dr. Melanie treated our two Cairn Terriers as family. She was very caring and gentle with them. She made us feel that they were important and that their well-being was her utmost priority.

Hank W., Parker, CO

“You can tell the staff genuinely loves the animals”

I came in for a second opinion on a diagnosis I was uncomfortable with from another vet. I’m so glad I did! Everyone was so nice and took the time to answer all of our questions. You can tell the staff genuinely loves the animals. I’m 100% comfortable with the diagnosis advice Dr. Jeff gave us.

“They truly just wanted to do what’s best for my dog”

Dr Melanie and vet tech Samantha took the time to answer every question. This was the best experience we’ve had, and my little pup and I will be coming back. Thank you so much for being so patient, caring and thorough!

Also, I felt it was very reasonably priced and I didn’t feel like unnecessary things were being suggested. They truly just wanted to do what’s best for my dog. Thank you. We have found out veterinary home.

Rachael M., Castle Rock, CO

“Thorough but don’t push ‘extras’ on you”

Great vets. They’re thorough, but they don’t push ‘extras’ on you. They explain everything and offer alternatives. Conservative in treatment.

Annette S., Castle Rock, CO

“Explained everything thoroughly”

Dr. Ivy and Wendy were awesome. They explained everything thoroughly regarding Blue’s condition and provided guidance regarding his condition so we know what we are up against.

Wendy L., Castle Rock, CO

“They never rush my appointment time”

Technician Chelsea and Dr. Ivy are great. They are both very knowledgeable and friendly. They never rush my appointment time. Make sure all of my questions are answered. I highly recommend Cherished Companions Animal Clinic.

Carole S., Castle Rock, C

“Dr. Melanie… is definitely part of our family”

Dr. Melanie is so awesome. She is definitely part of our family. Her care and love for animals (and their humans) is the best. We have been with her for approximately 20 years. We will never go anywhere else!

Shawn M., Castle Rock, CO

“The only vet I trust”

Wonderful staff!!! My first experience with Dr. Melanie was back in 2000. Having had life events that took me to other vets and having had a bad experience, Dr. Melanie is now the only vet I trust. It’s a 45-minute to one-hour long drive for me to get to her clinic. But for me, (and my companions), it’s worth it.

Jason L., Colorado Springs, CO 

“Thankful for the compassion”

I am grateful for the excellent care you show Bianka and Bosko each time they make a visit to your clinic. I appreciate the time you take to explain procedures you’ve done and those you recommend to be done. I am thankful for the compassion you have for all animals.

Donna T., Castle Rock, CO

“Thank you for being precise and treating our dog how we would”

Thank you for being precise and treating our dog how we would. We are impressed that you didn’t try to sell us thousands of dollars in testing and medicine. You diagnosed and treated the condition we came in for, and we appreciate that.

Philip H., Castle Rock, CO

“Thanks… for always making us feel so welcome”

I can’t say enough about Dr. Melanie — she’s awesome! I really appreciate not only her expertise in helping us through our ordeal of cancer with our dog, but also how she just relates to where we’re coming from. I’m so thankful that she’ll just talk with us and help guide us when it’s so tough to make decisions. She’s amazing, and I can’t thank her enough for help with our dog. Also, we’ve really loved Mara. She’s gone out of her way to make us and our dog feel welcome and known.

Thanks to everyone there for always making us feel so welcome when we walk in — whether it’s for dog food or surgery. We’re always greeted kindly and feel like they know us. You guys are the best!

Scottie M., Sedalia, CO

“A terrific balance of professionalism and friendliness that makes our pups happy”

Dr. Melanie is punctual, thorough, kind with the dogs, and careful to explain the health and any needed treatments of and for her patients. I especially appreciate the time she spends focusing and listening to whatever topic I bring to the table concerning our pets. The practice is a terrific balance of professionalism and friendliness that makes our pups happy to greet everyone there! Maggie and Hank have many best friends, and we are confident they will be well cared for.

Jeanne M., Castle Rock, CO
