The Colorado State University James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital won Best Animal Hospital in NOCO Style magazine’s annual “best of” edition. The results were announced in the December 2020 issue of the magazine.

“It’s an honor and a privilege for all of us at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital to care for our community’s companion animals, horses, and livestock, while educating the next generation of veterinarians,” said Dr. Craig Webb, hospital director. “Thank you to all of our clients and readers of the magazine for supporting our hospital.”

The hospital has remained opened throughout the coronavirus pandemic, and sees over 46,000 cases annually, ranging from dogs and cats to reptiles and birds. More than 600 faculty members, interns, residents, technicians, staff, students and volunteers contribute to their care. The hospital’s 125 veterinary technicians perform a role similar to nurses in a human hospital, playing an essential role in animal care and student interaction.

Faculty includes 79 board-certified veterinarians representing 28 specialties under one roof. More than 300 veterinary students learn alongside them, as they complete their third and fourth years in the CSU Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program.

More than 25,000 readers participated in the online voting. Categories include animal hospitals, boarding, and more. See all results in the “pets” category here.
