About us

Pets & Friends Animal Hospital was started as a sole proprietorship in 1984 by Dr. and Mrs. Tom Bird. He grew the business substantially over the years until his retirement in 1995. Beginning in 1996, the business was purchased by a Limited Liability Company, Pets & Friends Animal Hospital, L.L.C. In 2002, Pets & Friends became a sole proprietorship that is currently managed by Lori Mugasis, DVM. Throughout the years, Pets & Friends has had a tradition of providing the best veterinary care possible.

In our small animal practice, we provide the following: Exams, vaccines, surgery, nursing care, pharmaceuticals, pathology services, dentistry, quality pet products, a clean facility, knowledgeable, efficient and courteous employees, and doctors and staff who love animals and want to provide the best care for them.

Pets & Friends Animal Hospital is one of only a handful of veterinary hospitals in Colorado which has passed the rigorous inspection of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Since 1986, Pets & Friends has been an AAHA accredited animal hospital. AAHA evaluates many areas, including Pet Medical Records, Pharmacy, Surgery, Anesthesia, and Housekeeping, among others. We are proud to be among only 14-16% of the small animal facilities in North America that can claim this distinction. Although we deal with some sad situations, there are also many happy ones and we all find it a very rewarding experience to work at Pets & Friends.

We in the Pets & Friends family have had many office cats over the years, which at the moment include Goldie (15 years old), and Maralynn (4).
