It has been said that a dog is a man’s best friend. Well, in Castle Pines North and surrounding communities, a dog’s best friend is a man - Dr. John Vickers at Castle Pines Veterinary Clinic.
Colorado native and former school teacher, Vickers left the student classroom for the pet operating room to pursue his passion for animals. His goal is to keep business small, friendly and casual and to slow down and take the time necessary to treat his clients with compassion.
“We treat your pet as we would our own,” said Vickers. “We understand the special role your pet plays in your family and we are dedicated to becoming your partner in your pet’s health care.”
Castle Pines Veterinary Clinic is a full-service veterinary facility providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care for a variety of small domestic animals.
