Boulder >Broadway Animal Hospital & Pet
Do not take your pet to Broadway Animal Hospital. My cat, Oscar, could have died if i had taken the advice of Dr. Patrick Kalenzi. After returning from vacation, I noticed that Oscar had gotten into my suitcase and we think ate some ibuprofen at 5 am. I took Oscar to the ER and the vet recommended 48 hours of IV fluids to flush his system. Because the ER is closed during normal business hours, I then took Oscar to Patrick Kalenzi (Broadway Animal Hospital) who indicated that he would treat Oscar and I would be able to take him home that same day. I was surprised by the conflicting treatment options, and so I contacted several cat specialists for peace of mind. They all immediately agreed with the ER vet. I also learned that, because it is so common for pets to consume ibuprofen, the Animal Poison Control Center issued a statement with very clear guidelines on how to treat pets suspected of ingesting ibuprofen. When I confronted Patrick, he indicated that he was concerned about the high cost of treatment (even though I never brought up the subject), and stated that he was giving my cat the care he would give his own because he "takes these things lightly." He then used an analogy to describe his care for Oscar, stating "your dentist tells you to see him once every six months. I go to a dentist every couple of years or so. That's just me. Other people might go more frequently." This way of thinking is seriously flawed and below the standard of care a reasonable person would expect from a vet. If you care about your pet, I implore you to find another vet.
The Best Hospital for My Dog and Cat. After living in Broomfield for over ten years, Broadway Animal Hospital is the only place I will bring my pets for visits and boarding. Dr. Lee Woods and Dr Patrick Kalenzi are the most knowledgeable vets in Colorado. I have had large procedures and simple check ups for my pets and I know that they are in great hands. Secondly, the doctors and the receptionists always remind me what and when my pets are due for vaccinations or cleanings. They have made my life and my pets lives more happy and comfortable. Thanks again guys.
A 2nd family for our dogs. Being new to the area, I was VERY anxious about finding a new vet for my 2 large dogs. I was referred to Broadway Animal and in the chaos of getting them in for their first appts, forgot their records. The staff was very helpful and contacted our old Vet so I wasn't charged for anything I didn't need. The techs (Jackie & Jenny) are so warm & gentle with our dogs. It became VERY apparent this was a good fit when we were in the consult room with Dr. Patrick and my dogs laid down (this NEVER happens at the Vet - or around strangers for that matter!) We have since taken advantage of Daycare as well and Mallory is very aware of all the temperments and behaviors of each dog and does a great job of matching them up for playtime. This has been by far the easiest transition of our move and I have no intention of looking elsewhere for care. THANKS BROADWAY ANIMAL STAFF for taking such great care of our babies!
Go Somewhere ELSE.. RIDICULOUS ripoff. This place actually makes me sad for how they take advantage of pet-lovers. A series of over 6 vaccinations at $25 bucks each just to board? $300 spay/neuter?!??? Take my advice, if you want to save your money and put it towards something your pet actually needs, go to planned pethood plus. They even list their prices on their website, so much more affordable. And without a front-desk woman who tries to finagle every last penny out of your pocket, no joke. Sorry Broadway, you guys are actually kind of evil.
