     The Dr. and staff were so accommodating to the fact that we were new clients recently moved to Colorado Springs. They were able to see my dog on an emergency appointment on the same day. The Dr. has followed up for the last three days to check on my dog. I could not have asked for more a more caring practice.

    The entire clinic is always VERY clean! Everything from the time you walk in the door till when you leave runs smoothly, clearly very organized from front to back! The atmosphere is very comfortable and calming! The entire staff has always been incredibly friendly, kind, caring, polite, and professional!! I have been to many vets in my lifetime, but have never found the degree of true compassion and quality of care that I have ALWAYS received at St. Francis Animal Hospital!!! Dr. Kaufer is by far the most extraordinary vet I have ever had. Her entire practice reflects high standards as a vet and as a person!!!! I am very grateful to be a client there and would never consider going elsewhere. I would HIGHLY recommend St. Francis for the best possible care for your animals that you will ever find!!!!!!!!!!  -K. McNulty

    I took my dog in for her first visit to St. Francis and it turned out she was in very bad shape and needed to be euthanized. The Vet and all the staff were just wonderful through the whole process. Before we had made the decision the costs of all tests and treatments were carefully explained and all questions answered. Once the decision was made they were just awesome. It was terrible to meet under those circumstances but I do not hesitate to recommend this hospital to any pet owner. By the way, I found the prices to be actually lower than the other vet we visited that was inside the pet store.

    Beyond wonderful. We moved to the area and chose St. Francis Animal Hospital because it was close to the house. Being a military family with an aging furry family member, we have been to our share of vets. Our dog had spindle cell carcinoma and had been fighting it like a champ for over two years when we arrived in Colorado Springs. At his first visit, they were so caring and kind and I was really impressed. We have been to many vets, but the staff here really went above and beyond. Every staff member we met was great. Sadly, the cancer started getting to him and he was in pain. It was a gut-wrenching decsion and we did not make it easily. The staff couldn’t make the decision easier, but they certainly made the process as painless as possible and re-assured us that we were doing what was best for our beloved pet. They were so wonderful at the appointment and tried to help us all through. The doctor gave us all the information and patiently answered the questions of my son, and made a point of telling him the she was avaialble to him if he had any other questions later. Re-assuring him that his best buddy wouldn’t be in pain. They made us all as comfortable as possible…providing a mat and blanket we could all share with Mac through the end. So compassionate. So concerned. They gave us a beautiful impression of his paw and a lovely wrapped lock of his hair to keep. The vet called a few days after to check on us and they sent a condolence card. They made what was a painful, lonely experience for our family a little bit easier. I have been with friends who have had to put their dogs to sleep, and never have I witnessed a staff this caring and truly wonderful. Although we only visited them a few times before Mac passed, everytime they were amazing. However, the way they helped us though the passing of our dog speaks volumes about how much they really care about the animals they treat and the families they come in contact with. No words can express our gratitude.

    This is the best vet I have ever had. The staff are all very kind and knowledgable. They were amazing this past year as my 17 year old cat got cancer and ultimately passed on. I appreciated their veterinary expertise, but also their warm presence as we went through the end of my soul kitty’s life.

    Great experiences the two times we took our cat to the vet. The first visit was for a routine checkup following adoption from the humane society. The second visit was a consultation about an upcoming long-distance drive.  We can only say positive things.
