Indian Tree Animal Hospital is an establishment founded on far more than just veterinary medicine. It’s a practice founded on respect for animals, the desire to keep pets healthy, and a commitment to serving owners and their pet families. This is the vision Dr. Mitch Kramer had when he opened Indian Tree in 1990, and these core values continue to be shared with pets and pet owners in the Arvada, CO community today.
In the beginning, Dr. Kramer practiced full-time as the hospital's only veterinarian. Today, his hard work and dedication are preserved by an amazing team of doctors and staff that share his passion for impeccable veterinary medicine and gentle bedside manner. His confidence in Indian Tree's wonderful team, and the countless clients and pets he has served over the years, have given him such an amazing experience. He is forever grateful for his 25 years with Indian Tree.
The doctors and staff at Indian Tree are equally as grateful to Dr. Kramer for creating a hospital culture like no other, and instituting standards of care that go above and beyond for the clients we serve and the pets we care for each and every day.
