"This is Dr. Matt Fordham who shared our excitement when we adopted 12 year old Buddy from the Dumb Friends League. A year later when Buddy developed acute diabetes, Dr. Matt guided us thru the medical management for Buddy. Dr. Matt has a lot of patience and sensitivity for both pets and owners. He has been taking care of our pets for 12 years and has helped us with problems big and small."

"Dr. Fordham has been our family’s veterinarian for several years. During this time Dr. Fordham has shown an unparalleled level of care to our pet’s and our families needs. While his knowledge and experience have made him one of the premier veterinarians in the Denver Metro area it is his kind, compassionate care that truly sets him apart . We have experienced ups and downs with the life cycle of our pet’s and Dr. Fordham has been with us every step of the way guiding us to what was in the best interest of our pet and our family. We have experienced many veterinarians over the years and we feel strongly that there is none better than Dr. Fordham. If you are looking for superior care for your pet and family then you need look no further. Our family feels so blessed and thankful to have our pets under the care of Dr. Fordham."

"Dr. Matt Fordham is one amazing vet! We first saw Dr. Matt with our sickly little Pomeranian girl, who came to us with many respiratory issues.  He helped her have a healthy life for 14 years. At one point, she had a tumor on her spleen and the surgery he performed saved her life.  When she was at a couple of years left in her life, Dr. Matt caught a heart issue caused from her respiratory problems. He knew just the right specialist for our precious baby. Every step of Maxi's life was made better by Dr. Matt's special care of her!   Now we have an adorable little Yorkie, who loves Dr. Matt. Even though she is not sick, he cares for her with just as much attention! This is the best vet you will ever meet!
