Littleton Equine Medical Center has provided professional veterinary services to Denver, Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region since 1950. Today, the practice has evolved into a state of the art, exclusively equine hospital and referral center.

Our practice proudly offers a long standing and strong veterinary technician internship program. Through this opportunity, students are closely associated with a group of equine professionals with over 150 years of combined experience. Additionally, the technician program helps to expose our practice to bright minds and cutting edge ideas from around the world.
