Cherish companions cares about your pet and the pets family. Dr. Wulshleger listen carefully to what is going on with your pets health, then gets down on the floor with your pet and interacts with them before giving you her diagnosis. My 10 year relationship with Cherished Companion has been a positive one.

I had just flown in from a two week vacation and found by cat very lethargic and in a bunch of pain. I called Cherished Companions immediately and they were completely full for the day, however, Dr. Melanie said that if I dropped my cat off, she would work him in between patients. Oh boy am I glad she did, I found out he was diabetic and had a major infection. He is 16 years old, so his life and health were at risk and if she would not have taken him, I would have had to go to an emergency center which would have been double the cost. As a single parent with multiple pets in the house, I was very happy that she was able to take a look at the cat and get him stabilized.

Overall service was great, friendly, professional, and my puppy Gus was a good sport. Due to my experience in the human medical field I made a suggestion to the technician that completed Gus's vitals, but I don't think she understood me. I suggested taking pulse, respiration's etc prior to taking his temperature, as everything is falsely elevated otherwise. Looking forward to having my dog taken care of by Cherished Companions because I cherish him greatly!

Thorough exam. Good explanation of all procedures, tests and results and good directions for at home care. We were comfortable and confident with Dr. Whitney's and Tech. Danielle's work with the Lab names Cab.

As always, I was treated kindly, and the help given to myself and my elderly kitty was superb. Compassionate and caring, along with the knowledgeable advice given from Dr. Melanie, this hospital is one of the best.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the technician and doctor were gentle and very nice to my cat. I went to the appointment not really knowing how many the services were going to cost, but expecting a huge bill based on my experience with another vet in town. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the charges were very reasonable - and my cat got two routine vaccinations on top of the exam and antibiotics she needed for why I originally brought her in. I am so happy to have found a "forever vet"... one I will go to for all of my veterinary needs going forward!

I was able to make a same day appointment with Cherished Companions Animal Clinic to see my cat. Additionally, this clinic has a website where you can request an appointment online, which was great.

Yesterday we took 2 of our dogs in for checkup's, nail trims, and one needed an ear recheck. We saw Dr Whitney for the first time. She was awesome just like all of the other vets and staff. We always have a great experience at Cherished Companions. I highly recommend them. We would never go anywhere else.

Cherished Companions is a great place to get regular care for your pet. The staff is always kind, attentive and helpful, even when super busy. This last time, we were about 20 mins early for our appt and they took Beau straight back and had him out and done before our appt time even started. They also had me rung up and done before that time, despite the growing crowd in the waiting area. The doctors there are very caring and always take great care of our dog. Thanks, CC!

Highly recommended! I have been taking our dogs to CC for years. The facility is convenient, large, and nice. I have always got an appointment quickly, everyone has been friendly and loving to my dogs, and the vet's analysis and solutions to problems has been top rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Rude Techs and unwilling to work with long time customers?? - whoozycat?? - Today
We have been taking our animals to Melanie for the past 10 yrs. Although Melanie is a good vet and their fees are somewhat reasonable, much of her staff and techs are rude, snooty and un-compassionate. The staff has a "better than thou" attitude, and that is definitely NOT what you want, especially if your "family member" is ill or hurt! Even though you are a long time, loyal, customer they are unwilling to work with you financially in an emergency situation! They do not accept any payment plans and in these difficult economic times, there are many other Vet's in town that would be more than happy to work with you and keep their old customers happy. They would rather keep their rude and snooty help, then keep their customers. I was very disappointed the last time I took my pets in there. Shame on your Customer Service!! Perhaps, you should have your help take a course. There are a lot of other vets around, I think we will give a new one a shot!

We have been taking our dog to this office since she was a couple of months old. Everyone is friendly and helpful, and the fees are reasonable. They have even given me help over the phone. I even drive out to take my dog here and I no longer live in Castle Rock.

PROS: service, friendly atmosphere, cost
CONS: Distance unless you live nearby

Biography:

Dr. Melanie



For more than two decades, Dr. Melanie has been providing veterinary care to Colorado pet families. Originally from the Midwest, she graduated from Purdue University with a doctorate in veterinary medicine. Dr. Melanie is passionate about helping cats and dogs feel more at ease.



I’m the owner of Cherished Companions and one of the veterinarians on staff. I provide every service a veterinarian can, except for orthopedic surgery. I especially enjoy soft tissue surgery and dental surgery.



I thoroughly enjoy each and every dog and cat I see, and I strive to decrease their stress as much as I possibly can. I also am immensely blessed to be a voice for the voiceless!



In November 2014, I finished a two-year course and was certified in pet ultrasounds and echocardiography. I also took Tony Woodward’s two-day course in veterinary dentistry.
