First Place: Best Veterinary Clinic
Dog have worms? Cat have a hair ball? Our readers know who they’re going to call: Pet Kare Clinic at 102 Anglers Drive.
Founded in 1989 by Sam Taliaferro and purchased by Paige Jacobi and Susan Colfer in 2001, the business’s philosophy is simple: Provide the highest level of care it can, for both pets and people. “We try to be as compassionate as we can to both the animals and their owners,” says Colfer, who shares her South Routt home with chickens, pigs, a dog, a cat and “plenty of mice.” “We’re also developing a series of specialty niches, from dentistry to acupuncture, so we can offer a complete spectrum of services.”
There’s nowhere she’d rather ply these services than here in Steamboat — both for the quality of life the town affords her and her customers’ pets. “We really have an unbelievable clientele here,” she says. “People here are very passionate here about their dogs. They’re part of their day-to-day lifestyle.”
