At Bear Creek Veterinary Care we go above and beyond to give you and your pet the quality of service you deserve. But don't take our word for it. Hear it straight from the clients we serve:

  • "Incredibly friendly, caring, and knowledgeable staff. My dog goes to see both Dr. Van Valin and Dr. Lisenbee. They are the only vet in town that will make time to fit you in on the same day, even if they are completely booked!! I highly recommend this clinic to everyone."

- Anthony J.

  • “We have always felt very cared for at BCVC.  I am always happy to recommend [their services] to anyone I know…Thanks for everything.”

- Janell G.

  • “We appreciate the gentle care our cat received…we feel that she is well taken care of, and we will gladly recommend your office to friends…”

- Robert J.

  • "This is hands down the best Vet clinic West of the Mississippi. The support staff is incredibly friendly and loving and get to know you and your pets. The doctors are all professional and incredibly knowledgeable. My two dogs go to Dr. Van Valin and absolutely love her. She works well with each dog's challenges (one is 13 and a half) as well as with my budget. She has always provided the best plan of action for my sick pups and I will recommend her to everyone I know."

- Hana S.

  • “Absolutely love the Bear Creek Clinic.  I always know that Stoli will be well taken care of.  The staff and doctors are wonderful!”

- Krystle D.

  • “I always feel comfortable and cared for.  I like the way my animals are treated.”

- Vicki R.

  • "Absolutely fantastic staff and service! I wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else. If you are a pet owner and live in Colorado Springs, I highly recommend you bring your pets to Bear Creek."

- Christine M.

  • “Last vet was like a sales pitch every time we went in.  Here, we felt like a pet owner instead of a revenue stream.  Happy we switched!”

- Brian K.

  • “My case was an emergency – my dog cut her leg open bad while hiking.  I brought my dog in and we both received super great treatment!!  They let me stay with her which helped keep her calm.  Everyone here is the best!!”

- Dana P.

  • “The staff is very compassionate and caring toward our family pets and us as well.  We feel very comfortable and safe knowing our pets are in safe hands.  You are all appreciated.”

- Dani & John

  • “I drive from Falcon because of the many years of professional and competent service I receive for my pets.  They understand that pets are family members and offer the complete services needed.  Thank You!”

                - Mary

  • “The Bear Creek staff is truly wonderful.  I always feel well taken care of.  Most importantly, I feel that my dog is well cared for.  This is by far the best vet clinic I’ve joined (and I’ve joined quite a few due to the military).  Thank you for everything you do!”

- Diana M.

  • “Stephanie was amazing! She was so in-tuned with my dog’s needs and understood my concerns.  She wasn’t hesitant at all for us to call her personally…we’ve always loved Bear Creek and wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

- Hannah

  • "Attentive, caring staff.  They take the time to answer all of your questions and don't make you feel rushed in any way.  We're so happy to have our dog seen here now."

- Elizabeth C.

  • "Thank you for taking such great care of my Jack yesterday.  Kudos to your entire staff for fitting him in since he was limping.  The entire staff was wonderful and caring!"

- Stephanie M.
