WELCOME TO SCVIM

Diseases in our pets can be as complex as our own diseases, and veterinary medicine is becoming as complex to navigate as human health care.  At Southern Colorado Veterinary Internal Medicine (SCVIM), our team of veterinary specialists is here to guide you through every step of the process with your pet’s internal medicine needs.  From your first experience on the phone with our friendly client care team, to working directly with our doctors and nurses during your visit, we are devoted to helping you and your pet with complex illness through compassionate communication, non-invasive diagnostics, and supportive treatments.

What Do Our Clients Say About Their Experience with SCVIM?

Incredibly grateful your wonderful practice exists. We know every time one of our animals comes in, they’ll be given the best possible care, with knowledgeable and gentle staff.

Rosie's Family, 2019

Dr. Cannizzo and her nurse were amazing. I’ve never been in this situation with an animal before and finding out my best friend has cancer is heartbreaking and Dr. Cannizzo did a fantastic job explaining what was going on as well as helping us stay cautiously hopeful that we may get a little more time with him.

Oliver's Family, 2019

The staff as a collective were extremely patient, helpful, thoughtful, and most importantly capable. I have no doubt in my mind that you all are the BEST in your field. Our visit and follow up care/phone consults have been exactly what we did and will need to resolve Rainy’s Health issues and concerns. We drive 2 hours to your clinic because we believe it is the best, the awesome and caring staff make it even better!

Rainy's Family, 2019

Your staff was kind, your equipment and facilities were top notch. Dr. McReynolds was patient and spent a generous amount of time explaining treatment options. I was impressed from beginning to end.

Maggie's Family, 2019

The Internal Medicine team has been terrific. My cat is very anxious and full of torti-tude. Despite that, SCVIM nurses and doctors both have always been able to handle her easily and with kindness. AND they listen and stay familiar with my cat’s medical history. Truly a dream team.

Cat's Family, 2019

The front desk staff was wonderful. My dog, Claire, is very shy with strangers and they handled her wonderfully, making the entire process just a little less stressful for Claire.
