Dr. Ben Read
Dr. Ben Read

We’re excited to announce the addition of a veterinarian to our current great team of doctors. Dr. Ben Read will be joining us in mid-September, moving to Colorado from Massachusetts. Dr. Read completed his veterinary education at St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies and his clinical year at Washington State University. Following a family tradition, Dr. Read became a veterinarian after observing veterinary medicine up close throughout his life as his father is a veterinarian with over thirty years in practice! Dr. Read is excited to make the move to “Colorful Colorado” to enjoy hiking, camping, and photography. He’s also a musician, as are several members of our team, and plays several instruments including the drums. Since we don’t have a garage, we may have to start an “attic” band soon!
