Who We Are
Get to know us...
For more than 25 years, we have offered affordable and compassionate pet health care from our little red cabin in the center of Woodland Park, Colo. We take pride in caring for pets in a friendly, open atmosphere, emphasizing client education. Our doctors are trained in all aspects of internal medicine, dentistry, and surgery, and they work with clients to provide the best possible care for their pets. They are supported by our dedicated and educated group of veterinary technicians and assistants, and receptionists. The Animal Clinic’s awesome team of doctors and staff work together to make a difference in the health care and quality of life for your valued pet family members.
David Volz has been a practice owner and veterinarian in Woodland Park for more than two decades. Before settling into the little red cabin, he worked in Colorado Springs, Pueblo and the state of Maine. He also worked as a virologist at the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, Iowa. He is a native of Missouri and a graduate of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. He is known for his diagnostic ability, surgical skills and his "really great" Dad jokes. He has been known to remember rare diseases that he witnessed only once in veterinary school and apply that information to help sick pets time and time again. He gets excited when he can fix a tarantula with a broken leg, a rooster with a broken beak or remove a tumor from a goldfish (yes, really!). He enjoys challenging cases that make him think outside the box. When you don’t find him here, you’ll find him and his wife Pattye, extreme backpacking, mountain biking or cross-country skiing on some mountaintop somewhere in the world.
Introducing the newest addition to The Animal Clinic of Woodland Park! Dr. Jeff Baier joins our hard-working team in March 2022. Dr. Baier brings with him decades of experience with small animals, exotics and wildlife. He has been a member of the Colorado Rabies Taskforce since 2012 and is the primary veterinarian for the Birds of Prey Foundation in Broomfield. You might recognize Dr. Baier for his work on the Animal Planet TV series, “Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet”. He is often featured in the show for his work with wildlife and exotic species. We are super excited to welcome him to Woodland Park! (For fun, check out Dr. Baier’s YouTube videos with wallabies, rats, and other exotics.)
Terri Collins has been a partner in the practice with Dr. Volz since 2005. A graduate of Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology in Denver, she is the practice manager and a technician at The Animal Clinic. She is also a state and federally licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
