Traditionally 24/7 emergency care has been provided by cooperation between 5 veterinary hospitals in Summit County including Breckenridge Animal Clinic, Buffalo Mountain Animal Hospital, Frisco Animal Hospital, Farmer’s Korner Animal Hospital and Silverthorne Veterinary Hospital. 

Due to staffing shortages at Frisco Animal Hospital and Farmer’s Korner Animal Hospital, there will be some gaps in veterinary emergency services in Summit County. Emergency on call services will end at 10pm every night, and some nights may not have any after hours coverage. We recommend you call Breckenridge Animal Clinic (970-453-0821) and listen to our voicemail for the on call emergency doctor or alternatives if there is no doctor available. 

When there is no doctor on call for Summit County, we recommend the following facilities in the greater Denver area:

Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital (WRAH) in Wheat Ridge – 303-424-3325
