We value our pet owner’s opinions…what do they have to say about us?

I have been a client of Canyon View Animal Hospital now for 13 years, and I will never truly be able to thank Dr. Paula enough for all of her kindness and caring for my ferrets over the years. My ferrets are my kids and I love them dearly, so I am extremely grateful for all that she has done for them. I started out with 2 (that she helped me name, Bonnie & Clyde) and have adopted others over the years and they have all come to know Dr. Paula. I have had ferrets that literally would not have survived if not for her. Veterinarians with knowledge of ferrets are very scarce in Colorado, so I have thanked God many times over the years for blessing me with Dr. Paula. I believe in my heart, if it wasn’t for her, several of my ferrets would have never made it to a ripe old age. She has always taken the time to stay informed, attending conferences and seminars because she cares that much about all animals and wants to be able to provide the best care she can to them. Her compassion is boundless, her kindness and caring, immeasurable and her love for animals unsurpassed. She has a true kindness, compassion, and caring in her heart for both animals and people. That’s what makes her so amazing. Thank you Dr. Paula! Where would we be without you?


My son recently adopted a cat that developed ulcers on his eyes, something that is apparently very unusual for cats. Of course, he knew right where to go and took the cat to see Dr. Paula. This was something she had never seen in cats before, but as we expected, Dr. Paula did surgery on Loki and he recovered with flying colors thanks again to Dr. Paula. She is an amazing veterinarian and everyone should be so lucky to be able to take their animals to Dr. Paula. For Dr. Paula it’s personal. Each and every animal that is brought to her becomes a part of the family.

We met Dr. Paula Bumpers in 1999 when we adopted our dog, Lady. Lady turned 13 this year and developed cancer shortly after. The staff of Canyon View helped me say goodbye to her in a softly lit room where she had a cozy bed to lay on.



When we started adopting ferrets in 2007, we were ecstatic to see Dr. Bumpers recommended in Ferret USA magazine, as they can have many medical issues! One of our ferrets had adrenal cancer and needed adrenal gland surgery. Dr. Bumpers performed the surgery & Daisy came through with flying colors, even growing all of her fur back. Canyon View is always on top of the newest treatments to care for our beloved furry family. It is very hard to put into words what everyone at Canyon View means to us. They really are part of our family. This is the kindest group of people you will ever come across.


We have several ferrets now and a dog, Max. They love everyone at Canyon View- it doesn’t matter who helps you there, you are in good hands!

The Ahlstrom Family has been taking our four-legged family members to Canyon View Animal Hospital for years.

Dr. Paula and Dr. Jen are very caring, knowledgeable, compassionate and loving pet care providers.  They know each of our family members by name and they knew our pets names, also remembering past issues with each pet without referring to that pets chart.  They really seem to care about animals, it is not just a job for them.  You do not feel rushed during your appointment, they take the time to talk to you about all of your concerns with your pet.  Canyon View will send you reminders for all of your pets future check-ups and shots required.

Their staff has the same attitude about animals and other people’s pets.  Most of their staff has been with them since they opened, which says a great deal.  I know most Vet offices have a high turnover of Vet Techs and Staff.  Support staff at Canyon View is professional, helpful, cheerful and dedicated.



This team at Canyon View have treated many various types of our pets over the years: Bunnies, rare Blue Rat, Sun Conure, at least 5 dogs and our newly saved, off the street, Kitty.  When our senior dogs could not get up on the exam table, they get on the floor to take care of them.  If they cannot treat your pet, they will refer you to a specialist, such as for cancer.  In our case, they, along with the specialist, gave us 4 more years with our little Miss Rue after her cancer treatment.  Our little bunny Spots was ill and needed surgery.  During surgery, he stopped breathing and Dr. Paula and her Vet Tech each gave him mouth to mouth for a very long time, and were just as devastated losing him as we were.

These two wonderful Vets have kept pets that people don’t want anymore, provided needed health care, at their expense, and then try to find them good forever homes.  This is an animal care facility filled with love, hope and lots of smiles and laughs.


I feel confident that my four legged family members are getting the best of care at Canyon View Animal Hospital.  I am also confident in the guidance they provide helping us take care of our pets at home.  I am proud to call Dr. Paula and Dr. Jen – friends, not just my pet’s Veterinarian’s.
