Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora History & Milestones
The history of Mile High Animal Hospital of Aurora started in 1995, when Dr. Ilan Waskow was graduated from veterinary school and immediately began envisioning a unique approach to veterinary practice. In those early years, he gained experience at a variety of facilities, ranging from a 14-doctor, 24-hour hospital to a 2-doctor veterinary clinic, each with different philosophies and different goals. None, however, fit his picture of what a veterinary practice could and should offer the community. Those years of service helped him understand that the best veterinary practice would incorporate principles dependent on respect for animals and their human families, offering the best advice possible for treatment, and providing care at a fair price.
With his founding principles firmly set, Dr. Waskow set out to convert his vision into reality here in Colorado. He and his wife Meg researched where there was a true need for another veterinary clinic, and opened their veterinary hospital in the Saddle Rock neighborhood in southeast metro Denver.
