Salida veterinary care that can come to you

Mountain Shadows Animal Hospital is not your ordinary, small-town animal hospital. We treat animals of all shapes and sizes, and even offer mobile vet care when necessary.

Living in a mountain town like Salida, we know all too well how hard it can be to not only find the help you need, but to get to it. Whether the roads are covered in snow or things are simply just too far away, having a trusted vet that you can count on, like Mountain Shadows Animal Hospital, is absolutely necessary.

By providing our mobile vet services to a 70-mile radius outside of Salida itself, we hope to relieve some pet owners and ranchers of the stress that comes with living without much else around.

With more than 35 years of experience and practice, we don’t just provide superior care because we can; our team is passionate about what we do and believe in doing the right thing at all times. Caring for animals is unlike any other profession.

We care about your pet just as much as you do.

As a well established veterinary practice, Mountain Shadows Animal Hospital provides a wide variety of services and care for your pet. Regardless of why you have come in to see us, or why we have gone out to see you, our Salida practice has one mission in mind: to treat you with the compassion and respect you and your pet deserve. Our job is not to just treat your pet, but to provide you with the means to keep your friend stay healthy and happy for a long time. From routine maintenance checks to emergency vet visits and more, you can count on Mountain Shadows Animal Hospital.

Mountain Shadows Animal Hospital follows the leadership of Dr. Kermit (Kit) Ryff, a veterinarian with a true passion for helping local pets with routine and emergency veterinary care. The staff working alongside our doctor all share his unshakable commitment to the well-being of local animals, small and large.
