24/7 Emergency Coverage
For evening or weekend emergency care, please call our main office number, (719) 275-1909, to get the phone number for the clinician covering emergency calls.
Because it’s physically impossible for one doctor to cover all the possible emergency hours, by partnering with Fourmile Veterinary Clinic on the east side of town, you’re animals will always have prompt, courteous attention in an emergency situation.
If your animal is seen by a veterinarian from Fourmile Veterinary Clinic, all clinical records of your emergency visit will be transferred back to Rose Veterinary Hospital in a timely manner to ensure consistent, ongoing care during follow-up visits. Should your animal require continued hospitalization due to the critical nature of the emergency, the decision on whether your animal is stable enough to transfer back to our facility or best left in the care of Fourmile veterinarians will be decided through a discussion between you, ourselves, and the veterinarian who handled the original emergency.
It is important to note that while we will be providing an on call veterinarian, Rose Veterinary Hospital does not offer 24 hour staffing at the clinic. This means that if it is determined your animal requires 24 hour intensive hospitalized care we may recommend referral to a 24 hour care emergency facility in Pueblo or Colorado Springs.
Due to the nature of this emergency service full payment will be required at the time of the emergency visit, payable to the attending clinic.
If you are not currently an established client of either Rose Veterinary Hospital or Fourmile Veterinary Clinic, the ability to provide emergency care will be at the discretion of the on call veterinarian. In accordance with our agreement between Rose Veterinary Hospital and Fourmile Veterinary Clinic, existing clients will always be given priority for after hours services. If we’re fully booked with emergency calls and are not able to see your animal in a timely manner, you may be referred to an emergency facility in either Pueblo or Colorado Springs.

Insurance For Your Pets
Insurance policies for pets have become very popular and much more available over the last several years. They all work on a reimbursement model where you take care of the initial veterinary bill and your insurance company reimburses you a set amount based on your policy guidelines. While there are several insurance companies in the pet market now, the links below are for the ones we currently recommend.
Be aware these plans will NOT cover pre-existing conditions and become more expensive the older your pet is when you purchase your policy. Many companies won’t even insure pets after a certain age. Please read about what each company and plan does and does not cover to decide which would be the best fit for you and your pet.
