New animal hospital opens in Grand Junction. Local veterinarians are bringing more options for animal care in Grand Junction.

Dr. Mark Ryan, Dr. Justin Seely and Certified Veterinarian Technician Miranda Schroeder have opened Monument View Veterinary Hospital at 1673 US 50, near Duck Pond Park. The new hospital will specialize in small animals.

Ryan and Seely, both Western Slope natives, have decades of experience combined. Ryan founded Redstone Animal Hospital, at 2582 Patterson Rd. Seely, meanwhile, began working with horses before moving to his own small animal practice.

“In establishing this new hospital, we want to use our experience and passion for pets to provide a complete array of high-quality pet care,” Seely said in a news release. “As a non-corporate, locally-owned practice we have the flexibility and autonomy to give our pet families highly personalized health care in a safe and comfortable environment.”

The team created the hospital specifically to reduce anxiety in pets so that the trip would be less stressful for them and owners.

Mountain View, open seven days a week, also provides house calls, at-home euthanasia, and plans to add telemedicine services.

“While we utilize the best technology to treat our patients, we are also old school,” Seely said in the release. “Dr. Ryan and I were both trained in all aspects of veterinary care and are willing and able to try everything, old or new, to help our patients, which is becoming increasingly rare in veterinary medicine.”

Mountain View’s hours of operations are 8 a.m. — 6 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 8 a.m. — 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. You can call them at 970-644-5552 or visit
