AESC was founded in 2001 by practitioners in the Parker/Franktown/Elizabeth areas who recognized a need for after-hours veterinary care. Within a year, the demand for emergency care grew and AESC expanded its service to include 24-hour care, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. In 2004, AESC opened its state-of-the-art facility with the addition of specialty care and treatment services, on-site diagnostics and additional doctors and staff. Today, we continue to grow and are proud to serve you and the surrounding community.
