MEET DR WOLCOTT

Dr Peter Wolcott is a Colorado State University trained, licensed veterinarian with more than 33 years of clinical practice experience in small animal and exotic veterinary care.

Dr. Peter Wolcott grew up in the mile high city – Denver, Colorado, a graduate of East High School (’73). He spent the next year living and working on a farm/ranch on the western slope in Colorado. It was at that time that he was inspired to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. He graduated from Colorado State University and earned a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Science (1979) and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 1982.

Following graduation he worked at a busy small animal practice in Thornton, Co. On several occasions he was asked to make a few house calls and discovered that there were many advantages to home-based pet care over the cold sterile environment of seeing patients in a clinic. Since 1983, he has been treating pets at home and occasionally does a little relief work at clinics to help out other veterinarians in town. His hobbies include tennis, hiking, traveling, and reading western novels. Dr. Wolcott married his junior high school sweet heart – Jill (office manager).

His areas of focus include:

  • Preventative care
  • Pain management for pets, and
  • Pawspice (pet end-of-life care)
  • Compassionate home euthanasia
