Important Notice: Changes in Veterinary Services


Dear Valued Client,

We hope this message finds you and your beloved pets well and enjoying the beautiful summer weather in Steamboat Springs. We are writing to inform you of an important change at the Routt County Humane Society Wellness Clinic.

Our dedicated veterinarian, Dr. Fane Cross, has decided to leave her position to pursue new opportunities. While we are so thankful for all she has done for both shelter and community animals, we fully support her in this new chapter of her career. As with every new beginning, change is inevitable and will result in some temporary changes to our veterinary services.

Effective July 1, 2024, our wellness clinic will continue to offer routine wellness services such as vaccinations, health check-ups, and preventive care. Available appointment hours may change based on coverage; however, surgeries and other related services may be unavailable during this transition period as we actively search for a new veterinarian to join our team.

We understand the importance of these services to you and your pets, and we assure you that we are working diligently to fill this position as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we recommend consulting with other veterinary clinics for surgical and specialized needs.

For prescription refills, please give at least 48 hours’ business notice for all refill requests. In addition, for prescription food refills, please give at least a week’s notice as shipping times may vary.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding and patience. Your continued support is invaluable to us, and we remain committed to providing the best possible care for your pets.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to call us at 970-457-8002.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Elaine Hicks, MA, CAWA
Executive Director
