"These doctors and staff are the best & do miracles for our pets."

Dog after Successful TPLO SurgeryYesterday my Sachi dog had to have surgery on her right knee because she tore her ACL ligament due to the natural degenerative actions which occur in older dogs (typically), to that ligament.

This happened to her left leg last year and it healed well. I am very lucky and thankful that here in Colorado, in Colorado Springs, there is the Colorado Canine Orthopedics speciality center where the doctors specialize in these injuries and other orthopedic injuries. These doctors and staff are the best and do miracles for our dogs, and I am greatly indebted to them for helping Ms. Sachi. Her doctor, Dr. Todd Riecks, is fantastic and we are so lucky to have met him and he has become a friend to our family.

Sachi's surgery went well and now is the recovery period for her. I can't wait to take her on more camping adventures this summer thanks to her great doctors and staff at Colorado Canine Orthopedics.  - Joe

"Happy and Healthy"

SparkieI wanted to let you know that Sparkie is doing well and wanted to thank you again. You've been so very helpful and I am pleased about how he is doing. He is both happy and healthy. - Angi







"A year since Strider's TPLO surgery and he is better than new..."

Strider - Colorado Canine Orthopedics TPLO PatientIt has been a year since Strider's TPLO surgery and he is better than new, running and playing with his brother the Pointer. He has lost about 10 percent of his body weight to reduce further stress on his joints. 

I cannot thank Dr. Miller and the fabulous staff who helped us through this and answered my questions at odd hours! This is the second Lab of ours that has been treated at this hospital and we cannot recommend you highly enough!

Thank you!!! - Jane





"I am so grateful for your services!"

I am so grateful for your services! What a wonderful place you have and all the wonderful people working there. My lily is acting like a puppy again (she's 9 years old)! I called to get her an appointment. We live out of town, I got in that afternoon and the next day you did the surgery. Everyday is better than the last! I can't thank you enough! 

Sincerely, Julie

"We Traveled from Out of State to Get the TPLO."

Dog who had TPLO surgery at Colorado Canine OrthopedicsAmazing staff.  Everybody was so friendly and knowledgeable.  The facility itself was great with tons of dog toys and rugs so our baby wasn't sliding everywhere. 

We traveled from out of state to get the TPLO surgery.  We're glad we did!  Not only did they save us about $2000, they also did a great job fixing Maya's leg! 

I can't say it enough, but thank you Dr. Swainson and staff for answering all of our questions and your continued support!

"His personality has returned to normal."

Just wanted to let you guys know that Zephyr is doing GREAT! He's starting to actually use his new hip, his personality has returned to normal.

You guys are awesome! 
Michael (and Zephyr)
