Introducing Our State-of-the-Art Cattle Handling and Maternity Facilities

Rose Veterinary Hospital is proud to announce a significant upgrade to our Cattle Handling Facilities, tailored to enhance the care and management of your valuable livestock. With a commitment to exceptional service and animal welfare, we have invested in modernized infrastructure to meet the diverse needs of large animals, particularly cattle.

Our new facility boasts a sophisticated sweep (tub) system and a squeeze chute designed for the effective restraint of larger or more spirited cattle. This advanced setup ensures that we can safely and efficiently manage individual animals or small groups, minimizing stress for both the cattle and our team. The introduction of these facilities underscores our dedication to providing top-notch veterinary services, ensuring that every visit is as smooth and safe as possible for your livestock.

In addition to the handling upgrades, we have also enhanced our maternity pen, now fully enclosed to offer a safe and controlled environment for calving. This improvement provides a comfortable setting for the cow and calf during the critical moments of birth, ensuring the best start to life for the newborn. The enclosed pen also facilitates easier access for the owner and veterinarian, allowing for optimal care and monitoring during the calving process. We invite you to view our video for a comprehensive overview of our new setup and witness first-hand the level of care and professionalism you can expect from Rose Veterinary Hospital. Don’t hesitate to give us a call and discuss how our new cattle handling and maternity facilities can benefit your herd.

 Important updates to our coverage:
 After Hours Emergencies

Beginning October 29, 2020, Rose Veterinary Hospital will be adjusting the way we handle our after-hours emergencies for our clients. As always, we appreciate your understanding and we look forward to continue offering the best veterinary care for our valued clients. Unfortunately in this climate of rural and mixed animal veterinarian shortages we are unable to maintain staffing to provide emergency coverage 24/7. While Dr. Rose will continue to handle all large animal emergencies, our coverage for small animal emergencies has been necessarily reduced.

Please visit our Emergency Coverage page for additional information.

We’ve used Dr. Rose and her staff since she first came to Canon City. She’s a top notch vet that truly cares about the animals she works on. I can’t say enough good things about the work she’s done on our big and small animals. Katie, Sion, Bentley, J.R., Cooper, Harlei, Joe Hollywood, and many more. Thank you, Dr. Rose
