Practice Information

Welcome to Mesa Veterinary Hospital – Golden, Colorado’s long-established animal hospital. Our practice is run by our partners Dr. Stefan Rachwal, Dr. Steve Batch, Dr. Christine Horst, and Dr. Kitren Nickerson. Our wonderful team of associate veterinarians include Dr. Julia Katzenbach, Dr. Alison McNeilly, Dr. Sarah Levine, and Dr. Marie Walker.

Our animal hospital is located south of the I-70 and Youngfield Street exit on the west side of Youngfield. Our physical address shows that we are technically located in Golden and we are in a neighborhood known as the Applewood area. One of the perks of being in Applewood is that this region is really where Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, and Golden all meet. Our location allows our hospital to be easily accessed from many West Denver neighborhoods.

Our convenient hours make it easy for early morning and evening visits, and we offer same-day emergency visits. 

We treat dogs, cats, small mammals, and birds. We also offer exotic pet veterinary care for every type of species from hedgehogs to chickens, which many of our local communities allow as backyard pets.

Our experienced vets are committed to excellence and to providing warm, comforting care for both the animals we treat and their owners, which is why many of our clients travel from Wyoming, Northern Colorado, and Denver to receive their pets’ medical care.

We invite you to come by and meet the team. You can book an appointment by calling (303) 237-9542. We look forward to meeting you and your pet.
