About Us

usOpened in October of 2008 by Dr. Ricia Walker, Pets First Animal Hospital is a full-service, state-of-the-art veterinary hospital serving the people and pets of Colorado Springs and surrounding communities.

As pet owners ourselves, we know that our clients not only expect the best medical care for their pets, but they also want to be treated with respect by a staff that is welcoming and friendly. Owning a pet is a joy and we truly believe that visiting our hospital for a wellness exam or medical care should be as stress-free and pain-free as possible.

As doctors, we also understand that the best means to protect the wellbeing of your pet as well as keep the cost of care as low as possible is through preventative care. Not only does this mean thorough wellness exams and more, but we must be good at listening to you as well as sharing our medical knowledge so you can provide the best possible home for your pet.

Please browse our website, read through our services and why we believe they are important, and read through our doctor and staff bios to learn more about our team of professionals. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call us at (719) 550-1744.
