We love living with our pets in our rural mountain town of Gunnison, but we know that finding a full-service veterinarian outside the bigger cities can be difficult. That’s where we come in. At Mountain Legacy Veterinary Center (MLVC), providing quality full-service veterinary care is our specialty. And, what about those challenging medical cases and pet emergencies? We’ve got you covered there, too. With skilled veterinarians on staff to meet your every need, you can rest assured your pet is in qualified, caring hands from the moment they walk in our door.  Our MLVC team shares an inside look into the full-spectrum medical care we provide for the full-spectrum needs of you and your pet.

Technologically advanced diagnostics and surgeries for lifelong pet care

Technological advancements have allowed us to learn so much more about the illnesses that affect our pets, and our collaborative approach with specialists to review cases allows us to offer the best medical care available for your pet. You do not need to travel to a metropolitan area for many diagnostic offerings, because we have these state-of-the-art tools that allow us to accurately diagnose your pet: 

  • Digital radiography—a mobile unit is available
  • Complete in-house laboratory
  • Ultrasonography
  • Endoscopy
  • Tonometry

In addition to our diagnostic capabilities, surgical cases are treated with exceptional care, using advanced techniques, comprehensive anesthesia monitoring, comfort care recovery, and intentional follow-up. We focus on your pet’s health and healing from start to finish, and have the expertise to perform many surgeries and procedures, including:

  • Routine spays and neuters
  • Soft-tissue surgeries, such as removing masses
  • Dentistry, including cleanings, extractions, and general care
  • Orthopedics, including corrective procedures, fracture repair, TPLOs, and pelvic repairs

Emergency pet services right here where you live

As pet owners ourselves, we know that life happens, and so do pet emergencies—not always between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. At MLVC, our mission is to be available at all the crucial times, to support you and your pet when you need us the most. In an emergency, the last thing you want to do is drive for hours to find an emergency veterinary care center. Fortunately, now you don’t need to. Our committed team is available 24/7 for emergency care in unexpected situations. We are honored to be your go-to veterinary clinic in times of need.

Pampered pet services to keep them looking and feeling good

Our commitment to providing a better life for your beloved companion sometimes calls for some (furry) self-care. We offer acupuncture, boarding, and grooming services, in addition to our high-quality veterinary care—when it comes to your pet, nothing less will do.

We understand how much you love your pet, and how deeply you care for their wellbeing, because they mean everything to you. That means everything to us, and the reason excellence is our only standard.  Whether your pet needs a wellness exam, surgery consultation, or a new haircut, contact Mountain Legacy Veterinary Care team because, at the end of the day, we exist only to make a difference in your life, and your pet’s.
