It’s always easy to get questions answered quickly and it’s so convenient to have the Denver location available when the Centennial office is closed. Great people!Callan T.Callan T. ★★★★★ VIDA takes great care of my new puppy. The staff play with her to make her feel comfortable. The vets are so knowledgeable and create health care plans that are reasonable, caring, and proactive without over treating and excessive testing.Hope D.Hope D. ★★★★★ My dog has severe anxiety when at the vet and Dr. Rahim was INCREDIBLE! The first thing she did when she walked in the room was offer him treats and get on his level to earn his trust. After a while and without any change in his anxiety, she suggested we go outside to have the exam as this sometimes soothe dogs.Having worked in the animal industry my entire career, I have been to more vet appointments than I can count. This one was by far and away the greatest experience I have ever had.If any of you have dogs with vet anxiety, I cannot recommend Dr. Rahim enough!Abby D.Abby D. ★★★★★ Great vet for exotic petsCarolyn A.Carolyn A. ★★★★★ I've been taking my dogs to Vida for 5 years now and I can't recommend them enough!

My dog is so much happier here, even though we've gone for major things.Hannah K.Hannah K. ★★★★★ The staff @ Vida were so patient and caring when our dog, Panko crossed the rainbow Bridge.

My ferret and I were treated like familyMichael L.Michael L. ★★★★★ My cat Sunshine became very sick and couldn't keep any food down. I had originally called Homestead Animal Hospital for emergency care, but they were booked for 3 days and was subject to new client approval. They recommended VIDA for any emergency care. I was able to get an appointment as soon as they opened and thankfully, didn't have to wait to get care for my baby. The staff and lead veterinarians were awesome with descript and accurate diagnosis of the illness. They were completely professional and truly cared about getting Sunshine healthy again. They treated her like one of their own. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who needs routine pet care or experience an unexpected emergency. They are now my Vets of choice. Thanks VIDA! No C'mon Man's here 😉😻Johnny H.Johnny H. ★★★★★ I started going here because they see exotic pets. Now my dog is a client as well. They have been kind and compassionate to my dog while he has been having health difficulties. I like the veterinarians at Vida Vet Care. They have been very generous with their time when returning calls about blood work / diagnostics. I can be a little anxious when I'm worried about my dog's health problems and they've been very thorough when answering my many questions and emails. I'd like to publicly say thank you to all of the veterinarians here who have helped me and my animals.I just wanted to update my review of this veterinary practice. I am very thankful I found you guys. It is hard to find a veterinarian you can trust and I deeply appreciate everyone we have seen at Centennial. You've all been very accommodating and generous with my dog and I. We seem to always have health issues come up at night and my worried emails always get addressed first thing the next business day. We can't recommend you highly enough! I also have an exotic pet and I'm so glad you provide care to those animals as well. I hope your current clients all treat you like gold because you all deserve to be recognized as such!anon e. M.anon e. M. ★★★★★ The Doctor here is amazing and everyone that works here is excellent.

They always take such great care of my dog and make her feel at ease even those vet visits make her a bit nervous. They routinely call to follow up with how things are going 24-48 hours after a visit. I recommend them to anyone looking for quality care for their pets. Keep up the great work!Matthew U.Matthew U. ★★★★★ Dr. CC and the team at Vida has always done such an amazing job of taking care of our Pups. Between our 15yo German Shepherd Mix we had to put down last year to our new Redbone Hound Pups they have been incredibly caring and attentive to them all. I truly appreciate having a Vet of this caliber just blocks from our home. You can't go wrong with them.Scott M.Scott M. ★★★★★ Very knowledgeable and caring.

Really appreciate all she did for Sherman and us.Suzan M.Suzan M. ★★★★★ My cavalier Evie has been at this clinic since she was 7 weeks old. The care here is unsurpassed. I grew up with malamutes, huskies, and Leonbergers- BIG dogs! Evie is my first tiny pup. The care at Vida for the last year has been amazing- including the few times she has been sick or I have called in with questions.Today I called with a question around her behavior and the vet tech and vet had many suggestions to help her from the most minimal intervention on up. They truly want to give her the best care. I was referred to Vida by people we trust and will continue taking our dog here.S G.S G. ★★★★★ Great Vets, friendly staff, very helpful!

It's heartwarming to meet and interact with individuals who strive to do their best while providing a guiding hand.Nathan L.Nathan L. ★★★★★ We brought our recently rescued dog here for a second opinion after he was limping following being boarded. Dr. Ceci is awesome! She listened to our concerns and determined a middle ground treatment. She is very personable and followed up the next day via phone (herself) with lab results. We are transferring both our dogs from our other vet to Dr. Cici!Kari W.Kari W. ★★★★★ The doctors and staff at Vida truly care about the pets that they see and take the time to come up with a good plan to get the animals that they see back to health.Taylor DTaylor D ★★★★★ Our dog was rescued from a very abusive situation. He is very anxious around anyone he doesn't know, and vet offices put him in a state of decline. Since he is healthy, I have always used a mobile vet who makes house calls, for annual check ups and vaccinations. Recently though, he became ill and needed the services that only a full service veterinary hospital can provide. I am so impressed with the staff at Vida. From Dr Hafer to the vet techs, and scheduling personnel, all were first rate. I was able to get my dog in the same morning. Everyone was so calm, and patient with our dog. I was amazed they could get the tests done they did without anesthetizing him. I was able to stay with him through most of the tests they ran, which reduced eveyone's stress levels. I recommend Dr Hafer and staff highly, and wish there were more stars I could give them.Nancy E.Nancy E. ★★★★★ The staff is amazing and they really care about your pet.Giavanna K.Giavanna K. ★★★★★ My wife was very impressed with the staff and doctors. They took great care of Hooper.Gerry R.Gerry R. ★★★★★ Dr Hafer is the best. She took care of our Guinea pig's bladder stone without surgery. The entire staff is always on point, curtious, and goes way beyond what is expected. Should be more than 5 stars!!Charles L.Charles L. ★★★★★ The two locations work together to make sure you get the best care. I brought my rat here very worried about his health and the veterinarian and nurses were so gentle with him and were able to get him into surgery immediately. Compared to other exotic vets I’ve been to, Vida was beyond reasonable with pricing and did a phenomenal job. My rat was back to his playful self within 5 hours of surgery. I am so grateful for the amazing Vida team for giving my little guy much more time with me.Emily G.Emily G. ★★★★★ Adopted our pup at Denver Animal Shelter and chose Vida as our veterinary care. Dr. Ceci is amazing! She was so pleasant and very thorough when explaining vaccines and other any issues we had brought up. The staff was very nice as well! We felt very confident that we chose the best place for our pup after we had left.racheltannehillracheltannehill ★★★★★ Took our newly adopted kittens there. Clearly animal care and comfort is a huge priority. Very professionalBeth P.Beth P. ★★★★★ LOVE Dr. Cici!!! Always so caring and always a follow up call after the visit! And FREE tennis balls!Jennifer L.Jennifer L. ★★★★★ The staff are very professional and take time to answer any questions you have about your pet.Loritha W.Loritha W. ★★★★★ I have taken 3 of my puppers here now. I could easily save money and go to clinics, but with those, they see hundreds of dogs a day and therefore never get to know a family and unique personality of every animal. Vida has been refreshing for me as they have an interest in wanting to see my pups again, give them affection while I am there, and they give me great advice on potty training, food ingredients, and many more things to help me take optimum care of my babies. Not to mention, they are almost half the cost of other vets in the area which is also great for my wallet! Thank you for caring and providing such good services to our fur babies!Brandi C.Brandi C. ★★★★★ Great staff, caring and friendly. Great follow up as well. Nice clean modern office space.Adam F.Adam F. ★★★★★ Dr Hafer was able to diagnose our German Shepherd's eye condition accurately after an unsuccessful diagnoses at another vet. The whole team was very professional and great to work with.Galin N.Galin N. ★★★★★ I had a sick chicken and this is one of the few vets in town that sees chickens. They got me in very quickly on a Saturday and treated me and my pet with such respect and compassion. I was so impressed with everyone, from Jessica at the front desk, to Janelle and Stephanie, to Dr. Hafer. I highly recommend this clinic. There wasn't a thing I would change about this practice. Absolutely amazing care.Christiana K.Christiana K. ★★★★★ Vida is the best clinic I have ever been to! I did not feel like they were just trying to talk me into running tests to get money out of my but did so for the genuine care of my animal. Very knowledgeable doctors who take the time to explain things to you and make sure you understand. They follow up on the care of your animal. They are very sweet and caring to animals. I would recommend this vet clinic to all my furry friends!Hannah P.Hannah P. ★★★★★ My rat had to be euthanized and the staff here made me feel so comforted. They were very caring and professional. I would highly recommend them to anyone.Ashley MAshley M ★★★★★ Great vets here. Have been bringing my budgie for a couple years now.Brea G.Brea G. ★★★★★ I feel like I have finally found the right place for my pets, I just adopted a 6mo old pup and I have a 7 year old cat who will now be seen here! The staff is amazing and the facility is perfect.JJ ★★★★★ Awesone STaff!Linda S.Linda S. ★★★★★ I brought 2 of my cats in for exams and rabies vaccines. They were not happy to say the least. The vet tech and the Veterinarian were very kind and I left feeling like I could trust them. I will be bringing My 3rd cat in soon!Amanda T.Amanda T. ★★★★★ Beautiful facility and staff that were positive and willing to answer any question! Very impressed!Christy R.Christy R. ★★★★★ Love this place! The front desk is very friendly and my doodle LOVES the free tennis ball at his appointmentsSinjin C.Sinjin C. ★★★★★ The staff was SO kind, and very informative. I really appreciated the free exam, everything was handled well and I will be back!Kimberly S.Kimberly S. ★★★★☆ Staff were very nice, and treated both me and my cat with care and respect. The only reason I didn't give five stars, is because this place like many other vet offices don't offer a payment plan for those of us who are on low income. And I can't apply for any credit card place either because I don't make enough money. So it puts those of us who have pet family members and are basically the working poor, in a bit of a pinch when it comes to affording animal vet/ER care. Otherwise a very nice place.Ashley B.Ashley B.js_loader

I cannot sing the praises of this Veterinarian office enough! They are the kindest, most helpful people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. My chinchilla was suffering, and they squeezed me in to their busy books, helped sort him out, and it didn’t break my bank. They even called the following day to check up on him. I truly felt like they cared about my fur baby, and that they were invested on seeing him get better. Thank you so much! I will be returning with all my exotic, and normal pets, in the future- hopefully under better, more normal circumstances!


This is a top-notch vet clinic. I experienced quality care and excellent communication at all points along the way as they treated my cat with an emergency. Their follow-up has been superb (they actually called me to check in as I was writing this review!). I wish they were available for 24-7 intake/calls, but I 100% value the service they provide.

Troy R.

I always bring my pets to Vida, anything from my rats, to cats, to dogs. They’ve always been super kind to me and my pets, they’ve been very accommodating and offer great service. Every time I go to Vida I know I won’t have to come back 2 seconds later because they PROPERLY diagnose and treat my animals. I never regret coming to this vet.

Christiana S.

Vida Vet Care has done an amazing job caring for my dogs young and old for more than 10 years. I’ve used them for surgeries, annual exams and for a number of emergencies. Throughout it all they have always given my pets compassionate care. Making appointments is a breeze and appointments generally run on time. I give them a 5 star rating.


I absolutely adore this vet! My first visit ever was due to my normal vet being closed and needing an after hours emergency visit. Since then they have become my primary vet. I have always had a pleasant experience with all of the staff. They are very welcoming, and have still found ways to make it a pleasant and comforting experience during these covid times. I have brought in both my dogs and my guinea pigs to this establishment and 99% of the time have had great results. The only unfortunate one was the recent passing of my mom’s guinea pig, due to no fault of theirs, but later found out, due to an autopsy kindly offered for free by the vet, cancer. She was very sweet, and both called my mom, as well as sent her a card sending condolences. I could not more highly recommend this establishment!


The doctors and staff at Vida Centennial are kind, knowledgeable and professional. They always take such great care of my dog and make her feel at ease even those vet visits make her a bit nervous. They routinely call to follow up with how things are going 24-48 hours after a visit. I recommend them to anyone looking for quality care for their pets. Keep up the great work!
