About Us

Complete, loving care for your pets

Your pet’s complete wellness depends on far more than technology and advanced diagnoses – it’s about the bond between you and your pet. Your pet is a member of your family, and when you visit us at Mountain Parks Veterinary Hospital we are committed to treating you and your furry family member like you’re a member of ours. We are a unique veterinary hospital and pet care facility that works to build a strong personal connection with you so we can offer a range of veterinary and lifestyle services that meet your pet’s individual needs and the quality of care they deserve.

 

Our Story

 

“Is it summer yet?” – Benny

Mountain Parks Veterinary Hospital has been a part of the Foothills scenery since 1970. As Evergreen’s first veterinary hospital, we’re strongly committed to balancing the tradition of our tranquil small town with the changing needs of modern families and their pets.

Over the years, we’ve expanded the scope of our services, the capabilities of our facilities, and our relationships with our mountain neighbors and their pets.

Our Adventure Camp & Pet Lodge services complement the veterinary care offered at our hospital by providing exercise, socialization and boarding options for your pets. In fact, we are the first pet care facility in the area that has offered veterinary services, overnight boarding and doggie daycare in one location with a veterinary staff on-site for more than 40 years.

Here at Mountain Parks Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to providing pets and their families with comprehensive, high-quality veterinary medicine while also supporting and nourishing the beautiful community in which we live and practice.

Our team is our ‘professional family,’ and we work at Mountain Parks because we are passionate about all pets… our own pets, our clinic cat Domino, and yours too! We look forward to building a lasting relationship with you and your pet.

Dr. David DiMeo graduated from the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1983 and has been caring for pets ever since. He worked for other veterinarians before offering in-home care. In 1990 he decided to open a hospital with his wife, Dr. Julie Pelto in Rhode Island.

The new hospital became a pet care leader offering many advanced procedures such as ultrasonography, digital radiography, dental radiography minimally invasive surgery and in-house laboratory services.

The DiMeo family includes 3 human girls and 2 human boys ranging in age from 14 to 27, a Golden Retriever, Siberian Husky, 3 cats and an assortment of more exotic pets. The DiMeo’s are avid skiers and enjoy many sporting and cultural activities.

Dr. Mullen completed her veterinary degree from Tufts University in 1998 and practiced in Boston for four years before taking a position with Hill’s Pet Nutrition as a Consulting Veterinarian in Syracuse, NY. After three years there, she moved to Evergreen and returned to private practice because this is where she belongs – directly making a difference in the lives of people and their animal companions.

Dr. Mullen has particular interests in cats, greyhounds and in improving animal health through nutrition. She currently resides in Evergreen with her husband and best friend, Johan Holmquist, their boxer, jack russell terrier and four little people in fur coats (cats).
