VetMed Consultants incorporates powerful diagnostic tools and advanced technologies as an extension to the excellent care already provided by your primary veterinarian.
Our commitment is to partner with veterinarians in our community to provide high quality care and minimally invasive diagnostics and treatments.
We provide procedures that are not routinely performed in general practice, including minimally invasive image-guided interventions which are becoming the next level of improved patient care.
These techniques result in less pain, quicker recovery, and fewer complications.
As pet owners today are embracing minimally invasive procedures, we are excited to provide these innovative technologies.
Dr. Watkins earned his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Colorado State University in 1988 and founded VetMed Consultants in 1996.
His career has been dedicated to bringing non-invasive diagnostic tools such as ultrasound, endoscopy, CT and fluoroscopy into general practice making it available and affordable to everyone.
He has been trained in non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures and has developed new techniques.
These procedures replace more invasive open surgeries thus reducing pain and complications.
He founded the first radiation treatment facility in Utah in collaboration with Dr. Hayes, a human radiation oncologist of Companion Curietherapy, LLC.
He has been married to his wife, Lisa, since 1984 and they have four children.
