Dear Franktown Animal Clinic clients,

We sincerely hope you, your loved ones, and your pets have stayed well throughout this challenging time. We understand how difficult the past year has been, especially with the implementation of curbside appointments. Since we finally seem to be turning the corner in this pandemic, we are pleased to inform you that we will be opening our doors once again.

We will be starting a phased re-opening protocol on May 17th, 2021, pending any changes in Colorado’s public health guidelines. We will now be accommodating both in-clinic and curbside appointments.

When you call to schedule an appointment for your pet, please let us know what type of appointment you would prefer (in-clinic or curbside). If you choose an in-clinic appointment, we will only allow 2 people inside per appointment. In addition, we require that all people wear a mask while in the building, regardless of their vaccine status. We are enforcing this mask requirement because our staff will be in close contact with you in our exam rooms. We are aware that various government entities have released different guidance on masks for vaccinated vs. un-vaccinated people. At this time, we feel the safest way to proceed is to have everyone continue wearing masks for now.

If you do not wish to come inside to pick up food or medications, please call the clinic, and we will happily bring it out to your car. Technician appointments will remain curbside at this time. Surgery drop-offs and pick-ups will be done inside the clinic.

We will continue cleaning and sanitizing our clinic as we have been throughout this pandemic, as the health and safety of our staff and you, our clients, is our utmost priority. We believe that this protocol will be a smooth, effective, and safe one. We are very much looking forward to seeing you in person again soon.

At Franktown Animal Clinic, you’re family

Franktown Animal Clinic has been devoted to the health and wellness of the pets in our community since 1990. Some of our clients have been with us for 30 years. Thank you!

We now proudly offer Chiropractic Services!

At Franktown Animal Clinic, we believe chiropractic care is an important component in keeping animals sound and happy. Chiropractic medicine treats the nervous system by checking the soundness of the body’s infrastructure.

Adopted pets receive their first exam free!

The team at Franktown Animal Clinic wants to say thank you for adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue organization! If you’ve recently welcomed a new, rescued furry friend into your life, their first exam is free.

Franktown Animal Clinic has proudly served the veterinary needs of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit dogs since 1997.

Dr. Dave is the best veterinarian I’ve ever met! You can tell he has a true passion for his work and always shows his love and compassion for the animals he helps. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone with a pet.
Chris M.

They took very good care of our dog Max and us when it was time to say goodbye to our fur baby. They are compassionate and you don’t feel like a “number.” Highly recommend.
Johnnie M.

I have been going there for over ten years. Always find the place and the people very friendly and helpful. My favorite vet is Dave Swieckowski. Always very loving toward my pets and considerate about how to help with the cost of care for my pets. Can not say enough good things about the place.
Hank I.

Dr. Aker and the whole staff at Franktown Animal Clinic are hands down amazing. We were new to the area and were welcomed immediately. If the price is a concern Franktown Animal Clinic is very reasonable. We are so grateful for the care and compassion we received here.
Em D.

The Doctors and staff are amazing! Everyone works well together to keep things moving, they are affordable, and most importantly, they really care about my tiny furry best friend! From vaccinations & teeth cleaning to surgery, I couldn’t be more pleased with the care my pet has received at Franktown Animal Clinic.
