Veterinary office opens in Kremmling

Brackett Veterinary Services Inc., owned by Adeline Brackett, opens today at 301 Eagle Ave. in Kremmling.

The general practice will provide vaccines, physicals, internal medicine, surgeries and dental cleaning for cats and dogs. Boarding and grooming are not offered.

“I enjoy working with new animals and I enjoy meeting new people,” she said. “I like the area … It has more potential for large animals.”

She will see cats, dogs, horses, cattle, goats, sheep and small rodents.

Brackett prefers small animals to be brought to her office, but she will drive to people’s homes to see large animals.

Brackett has been a veterinarian for three years. She grew up in northern Nevada on a family ranch.

“Since I was about 5-years-old, I knew wanted to be a veterinarian,” she said.

Brackett received her B.S. from Kansas State University in 2001, and her Doctor of Medicine from Colorado State University in 2005.

“I enjoy working with all types of animals except for reptiles,” she said. “The variety of animals and cases I get to see as a mixed animal practitioner is one of the reasons I love my job. I also enjoy meeting and working with the owners of the animals.

“For the past three years, I worked for Steamboat Veterinary Hospital, but decided to start my own practice to be able to live in a smaller town and to be closer to the reasons I stayed in Colorado after graduation.”

Brackett Veterinary Services hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday by appointment.

To schedule an appointment, call (970) 724-3861.
