Dr. Laura Downie graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. Upon graduation, she was selected for a prestigious small animal internship at Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, New Jersey. Her focus was on internal medicine, surgery, and emergency medicine. Following the internship, she practiced at Westside Veterinary Center, located on the Upper West Side of New York City. In New York City, Dr Downie became known as a feline medical expert. Dr. Downie and family decided to return to her native Littleton, Colorado, and she purchased Redstone Animal Hospital from a veterinarian who was retiring in 2011. Subsequently, she started complete renovations on both the clinic and the boarding kennel. In her free time, she is an avid tennis player and plays on a local USTA team. She also enjoys spending time with her family (2 young children) and volunteering at the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley in Littleton. She currently serves as the Vice President of the Humane Society’s Board of Directors. Her pet family is always growing due to her soft spot for shelter pets – currently she has a geriatric lab, two Chihuahua mixes and 4 cats. Dr. Downie’s goal during the veterinary visit is to get to know you and your pet and to prevent medical problems before they happen. She strives to find a diagnostic and therapeutic plan that is right for you and your pet as well as your budget. Some of her areas of expertise include: dentistry, internal medicine, abdominal ultrasound, geriatric feline medicine, nutrition, and managing chronic ear infections. Dr Downie is an active member of the Veterinary Information Network, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and is a Fear Free Certified Veterinary Professional..
