At MVMC, our close-knit team of dedicated professionals provides exceptional service in our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art facility. We stand ready to serve the needs of you and your pets for preventative and sick pet care.
At Midtown Veterinary Medical Center, our priority is the health and wellbeing of every pet entrusted to our care. We prioritize peace of mind for loving owners. We offer all the preventative care services recommended to keep pets healthy throughout their lives including comprehensive annual wellness and bi-annual senior exams, vaccinations tailored to your pet’s lifestyle, and laboratory screenings designed to catch disease early so that we can treat accordingly and prolong your pet’s health, comfort and overall quality of life.
When pets do become sick or injured, we have a full slate of diagnostics needed to discover the causes of illness, including digital imaging (radiology and ultrasound) and an in-house lab for quick diagnosis. We have facilities to hospitalize and care for sick animals during our open hours.
We work with multiple mobile veterinary specialists who provide in-clinic consultations and care for our patients, including board certified specialists in radiology (ultrasound, echocardiogram), surgery, and internal medicine (consultations, endoscopy). These specialists collaborate with our veterinarians to offer comprehensive, advanced medical care and diagnostic testing for our patients in the comfort of our hospital.

We make every effort to accommodate our clients’ requests to see specific staff members. However, there are times when circumstances prevent certain team members from being available during a pet’s visit (such as scheduling conflicts, vacations, and emergenices). All of our team members are highly skilled, them communicate regularly on common cases, and or goal is to get your pet in for the timely care that it needs. Therefore, sometimes the visit will be handled by a doctor other than your preferred doctor. Please let us know when you schedule your appointment that you have a preference.
Our team takes every precaution to ensure your pet receives the highest quality care whey they undergo anesthesia and surgery. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing prior to the planned procedure to be sure they are healthy. Some pets, especially older ones or those with pre-existing conditions, also get a pre-anesthetic ECG (heart screening). During the anesthetic times and through full recovery post-procedure, a veterinary technician will continually monitor your pet with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment including ECG, blood pressure, oxygenation level, heart rate and respiratory rate. Pets are kept warm under a specialized forced-air warming blanket. We also provide appropriate pain treatments before, during and after surgery to keep your pet comfortable.
There is a lot going on at our hospital and there are often multiple pets in our reception area. Due to the unfamiliar surroundings, sights and smells, any pet – even a well trained one – might become overly excited or fearful. We want our clients and all ets have a pleasant experience when visiting our hospital, so we ask that you respect our policy. For the safety and protection of all clients, patients and veterinary team members, we require all pets to be on a leash or in a carrier when they arrive at our hospital. They must continue to be restrained while in the reception area and while moving into the exam rooms. Our team will let you know when it’s safe to let your dog off leash or out of a carrier.
As a fellow veterinarian in the community, I have been blown away with the level of care, compassion and expertise at Midtown. I specialize in home palliative care and hospice now and my ability to to care for my own pets is a bit limited compared to when I was working in practice. Recently my older cat Sydney acutely became sick and Midtown was more than willing to fit her in same day even though I told them I could definitely take her in to an emergency clinic if needed. They were able to quickly perform in house lab work, radiographs, and organize a same day ultrasound. Dr. McCarthy even hand delivered a urine sample to CSU so we’d get urine culture results faster. Preliminary results from the tests were consistent with a severe kidney infection and they were able to start treatment right away. During Sydney’s treatment over the coming days, I was able to meet and work with all of the doctors and they are all fantastic and caring. I received text messages with updates from the wonderful technical staff. Jane in reception was incredibly empathetic and also was quick to send invoices over to my pet insurance so I could get reimbursed. I am so glad Dr. McCarthy took the jump and opened this practice (right before COVID hit, I might add). It is an asset to the community and I’m grateful for all of the high level care they’ve provided to my pets. Thank you for everything.Emilea Burton
This is the best Vet office I have ever been to! I have never had a vet office be so personable with a patient-first attitude. Having a sick or injured pet is never a fun experience, but with Midtown I at least did not feel alone and anxious, I went home confident of our treatment plan and that my pet was going to be okay because of this awesome staff. Whether for last minute vet appointments or routine care, I highly recommend this office!Hannah H.
Could not recommend more!!! Our dog struggles with being handled and they're always so patient and calm with her. I'd fully trust them with my dog any day. Such great attention and care. Cannot thank you all enough for your patience with Lory!Lucy Falconer
Used to take my dog Leo here when I lived in Fort Collins. The staff is friendly and helpful. The vet techs and vets themselves are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Couldn’t recommend this place more.Henry Dooley
Excellent practice. We have been bringing our new puppy here. All staff are friendly - from reception through to clinical staff. Would highly recommend.Ellie S.

Great facility and wonderful staff! The best part is you won't break the bank bringing your pet here! Dr. McCarthy is amazing!Laure Pagano
Thank you for helping Rossi on his first trip to the Puppy Doctor! We always knew Alfie was in great hands. We wouldn’t have taken Rossi anywhere else! Glad to see you all are doing so well! Here’s to more healthy check-ups!Anoushir Mansouri
Ya’ll only met Oso once, but the care and professionalism and compassion allowed us to spend a few more days with this buddy we loved so much. I included some pictures of Oso and the life he shared with us. Your fast care, quality diagnosis, constant follow up allowed us to give him the peaceful send-off he deserved. We will forever be grateful. I also foster for Bounce and have brought many foster dogs to you. At a time when so much in the world feels sad and angry, what a LIGHT ya’ll are. Thanks again. I will continue to tell everyone who will listen how highly I think of ya’ll.Paige and Scott
First impressions are everything. I recently was teamed with my new service dog and I needed to find a vet that was close to me. I found Midtown very modern, very wheelchair accessible, great staff and highly professional vets. I was also surprised to find great prices which all added to a great experience. I found my new vet for my service dog at Midtown.Akiji Koiwalakai
According to the family who's farm I found him on he (McGregor) is officially TWO YEARS OLD!!!!! Without you all we never would have made it this far. From the absolute bottom of our hearts (to infinity and beyond), thank you all for everything you do. Without all of you and the incredible care you guys give to your patients, Gregs would not be here todayLindsey & McGregor
constantly gifting us rib cracking laughter with all his goofy, ornery shenanigans and larger than life personality. Thank you all for the kindness and compassion you have shown to us, and, I'm sure, all your other patients, too. If you guys are ever having a tough day please know the incredible (small, fierce and orange!) difference you have made in our
lives by doing what you do. You guys are all amazing and we will be forever grateful. Thank you guys for taking a chance on saving my little fighter even with all the odds stacked against him.
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the wonderful care you have given to my Lhasa Apso Teddy Bear over these last couple years. It gives me peace to know that in the end he was treated with love and respect. I feel blessed to have found you early in 2020 and to have you care for his health in his last couple of senior years. The time spent discussing his health and making sure he lived the healthiest life possible was not lost on me. I appreciate you more than words can say. I also want to say thank you to Kassey for the big hug they day we learned of Teddy’s failing health. More proof of just how wonderful and caring your practice is.Elaine Hughes
