Dr. Mark Holmes opened Paws of the Rockies Animal Hospital in April 2001. Living in the large city of Phoenix in the immediate years following his veterinary education forced him to reevaluate his quality of life. He decided that his health, a clean environment, and a friendly community were more important than living in one of the fastest growing cities in the nation and the financial benefits this made available to him.
So Dr. Mark took a risk that would allow him to live a quality life in what has always been an embracing community of Ft Collins. And so, Paws of the Rockies Animal Hospital was founded. Dr. Mark firmly believes that integrity and excellence in practicing veterinary medicine and strong client communication are the hallmarks of a successful practice. In addition, he believes that keeping the best interest of the patient in mind is vital to maintaining integrity. Dr. Mark is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for his patients and excellent communication to his clients so that informed medical decisions can be made.
