The Lexie Fund was started by a contribution from Calvin’s dad, and people like you keep it going. Lexie has become the voice of Calvin’s spirit and helps him live on in each pet that we are able to help. Calvin himself was a beautiful 16 year old cat. When he came to us, near death, we treated him with surgery and complementary services. Calvin returned to vibrant health and lived another love filled and joyful 18 months with his dad. Donations are always welcome and go directly to assist pets in need that are projected to have positive outcomes. Meet just a few of the pets we have helped.
Lexie came to Harmony Veterinary Center when she was just 8 weeks old, a bright happy puppy full of life and joy. When she was 5 months old that all changed. Lexie became very ill and while at the emergency clinic one late night Lexie was diagnosed with sterile Spinal Meningitis, her family was devastated. They were in the process of getting pet insurance when she was diagnosed and with the diagnosis she would not qualify. Lexie had a serious nervous system insult. Watch this YouTube video of another dog with the same condition as Lexie. The consensus of many vets was to put her down. The family had no hope and none of us at Harmony Veterinary Center could dream of putting Lexie down. We agreed to take custody of Lexie and do everything possible to heal her. The family agreed to help us raise money and stay active in Lexie’s life. Lexie spent her days at Harmony Veterinary Center and received the best of complementary and traditional medical treatments. She was fostered by a neighborhood family and the community of 5 Parks came together and raised money to pay for her medical expenses. Many veterinarians donated time and service to help heal Lexie, even animal health companies like Merial and Idexx pitched in to help this special dog. Lexie is now 5 1/2 years old and has become our clinic mascot. We have had the joy of watching her come back to full and vibrant health. She has been adopted by the foster family and her original family still has contact with her. Lexie has a rich social life, spending time at the clinic, and being trained to be a service dog. It was only fitting to have her give back to a community that has given so much to her. She loves people and loves to love and be loved. Thank You We cannot express our gratitude enough to all of the kind hearted people who have helped Lexie in so many ways. Lexie still comes to our clinic, not for treatment but so socialize and give love to all she meets. When you come to the clinic spend a little time with this special being, she will bring joy to your heart.
Ravi was a kitten when his feline mom died suddenly. He was adopted and raised by hand by a single mother. At the age of 2 Ravi’s pet parent died suddenly, leaving him to be cared for by relatives. The tragic events cause Ravi to develop behavior problems and he was going to be taken to the shelter. Instead he was brought to Harmony Veterinary Center and with some gentle care, herbs, homeopathic remedies and energy medicine he became a gentle sweet boy. Ravi now lives with his new pet parents in Denver and is loving life.
Meet Willow, one of the flood survivors our team helped get back on her feet. Willow was spotted after the flood starving, injured and in pretty bad shape. She had become stranded on the wild side of the river in Clear Creek Canyon. Thanks to some good Samaritans, and Clear Creek County Animal Control she was rescued. Willow is 12 years old, was close to starving to death, had multiple painful broken teeth, advanced arthritis, and was diagnosed with an untreatable cancer. She now has a healthy pain free mouth, has pain medication for her arthritis, and best of all a hospice foster home where she will live out her days in comfort.

These birth brothers had lived to together for a year before they came to us and were highly bonded. For an unknown reason they were separated and put up for adoption at separate locations. One of our clients found them not thriving and severely heartbroken. They came to Harmony Veterinary Center for some TLC and time to be away from the shelter environment. They responded immediately, running, jumping and playing with each other, cuddling and falling in love again as only brothers can do. They truly are inseparable and now live with lovely family who will never separate them.
Cosmo came to us for urinating outside of the box for several years. What we discovered was an undiagnosed kidney disease that is currently being treated while he is being retrained to use the litter box. Cosmo has found a wonderful home with a family who understands his lifelong condition and loves him. He uses the litter box again, has a dog to play with and deeply loves his mom and family.
Lapis was found on the streets of Georgetown, CO just before winter set in. He wasn’t doing well in the local no kill shelter and began to develop a stress related skin condition. Lapis came to stay with us and with a combination of eastern and western treatment and time at the “kitty spa” his stress levels lowered and his skin cleared up. Lapis now lives with a retired couple and is extremely happy as the only cat.
