    We have been seeing Dr. Lee for 5 pets now, starting over ten years ago. He's not just the best vet I've ever had, he's also our friend. When we had to put down my poor sick cat Spot, I couldn't watch when he was getting very out of it. Dr. Lee took care of him for me and my husband, and by the end we were all crying. Spot had been coming there since he was a baby, leaving scratch maid on the door that you can still see. I know his place is kind of shabby but I prefer to think of it as "pet friendly." in his collection of arks on the wall by the door, you will see a zoo birdhouse that I made for him last year. I know he treasures all of the animals that come to him for help, and their parents too!

    Took my sick ferret to Dr. O'Donnell. He was straight up, honest and supportive. He felt like a small town vet, simple and easy going. I will continue to use him!!

  • *****

    I have never met a more caring vet! He is amazing and gentle with our three Great Danes and does a wonderful job of explaining things to us. He doesn't recommend anything that is needed and really tries to find what will work best for each individual client. Plus, his prices are very reasonable! Even though we moved 30 minutes away, we will continue to drive down to Dr. Lee and his clinic as long as we are able!

  • *****

    Dr. Lee and his staff are so wonderful, caring and professional. He is one of the best Vets around. I highly recommend them!!!

    Best vet in the city trust my pug to him allways and his personal service is outstanding

  • *****

    Best veterinarian in the area! Dr. Lee is the most caring, patient, kind vet we have ever been to. My pets are my babies and it's hard for me to find someone I trust. We've brought our dog and our cat here for various needs and each time we were greeted at the door, seen right away, and instantly put at ease as Dr. Lee and his assistants took care of our babies, explaining everything along the way. He truly cares about what he does and I wish there were more like him. Definitely recommended!!!!

    Been going here since I was a boy and they have never done me wrong.

  • *****

    People are way nice. I was in there to get zoey her rabies shot and the doc had to put down an old dog ,and he has probably done it many times and he was still tearing up witch says alot about the kinda caring person he is. I highly recommend this home like place

  • *****

    Awesome place with the most caring vet ever

  • *****

    Doc Lee and his assistants are absolutely wonderful. We have had a total of six pets under his care and have been seeing him for over 15 years. He and his staff's compassion is amazing. You may wait a little longer than at another vet, but guess what? It's because he makes sure you understand your pet's health. Thank you Doc Lee from the bottom of our hearts!

  • *****

    I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lee! I went to him with my family and continue now with pets of my own. He is very caring and passionate about animals. Knowledgeable, and gives you different treatment options. Never felt like he was out for my money which is really great considering alot of places are. Happy to have a vet I can trust!

    My mom has been taking her dogs and cats to Dr. Lee O'Donnell for almost 20 years. Now I have my own dog, and I wouldn't think to take him anywhere else than Animal Ark. Dr. Lee is honest, caring, helpful and compassionate. He's always given all of our pets excellent care. The one time I had to take my dog elsewhere (Dr. Lee was on a rare trip out of town), I was very displeased with the service I received, and they didn't fix my dog's health issue. I took him immediately to Animal Ark a two days later and once again received exceptional care for my little puppy. One day later, he was already feeling better. That goes with saying I will never go to another vet!

    Moved to Lakewood over a year ago. Hadn't found a vet yet until today! My poor baby had infection and scratched her neck open to where she was hemorrhaging. Called 3 other clinics I found online near me. The first one answered but the doctor wasn't in until it was too late. So I called the others and no one answered. The 4th try was Dr. Lee. He got on the phone with me right away! I got in right away and he was very nice and kept me calm. He has a wonderful God given gift with both pets and their owners.

  • *****

    I am new to Lakewood and hadn't found a vet but then my dog got sick. I was able to get an appointment that same day. Dr. Lee was gentle, kind and thorough. He also gave me recommendations based on "if it were my dog" which meant in our case he did not recommend expensive bloodwork or xrays. His staff was very friendly and obviously love animals. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 was due to the "worn" look of the office. Lots of carpet stains, dirty upholstered chairs and dirty floorboards. The care I received more than made up for that though and I will be back.

  • *****

    Very compassionate about his work and has a great "bedside manner" if you will, with his patients and their families

  • *****

    Lee is the best vet I have ever met! Someone who genuinely cares about animals and their well being! I will never take my pets anywhere else EVER!

  • *****

    I'm beyond impressed... The service was excellent! So nice and personable :) I felt very comfortable and left feeling a lot better about my cats condition. Very content and pleased.

  • *****

    We stumbled upon this clinic online when needing some quick help for our dog and Lee and his staff got us in right away, took such great care of our pup, and sent us home feeling so relieved.

  • *****

    Great pet care and personal attention to my dogs needs!! Great professional COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY VETERINARIANS!!

  • *****

    Amazing, loving understanding vet!! We, Zoe (my animal kid) and I love him! I moved out of state for a bit and let me tell you, there is no vet like Dr. O'Donnell. He does not get every cent out of you, he lets u know what is needed and what is not. He will even give u a price before performing, and his prices are very reasonable!

  • *****

    Amazing Vet, Great Experience! He is a great guy! He will give you a discount for your first visit usually and gives you many options for treating your animal. His schedule is tight so it is best to make an appointment, but he always gives you undivided attention while you are there. His clinic is a converted house, but it makes your animals feel more comfortable and welcome. Never had a problem here. Great Vet who will see every one of my pets as long as I live in Denver.

  • *****

    We have been takingour pets (dogs and cats) to Dr. O'Donnell at the Animal Ark for over 20 years and have found him to be extremely caring and reasonable. He always lets us know what our care choices are and doesn't push for tests or procedures just to make money. He seems to care almost as much about our pets as we do. He is just WONDERFUL!!!

  • *****

    Why I like Animal Ark
    I really like the attention that my three dogs get at Animal Ark. Dr. O'Donnell is very thorough, and his fees are quite reasonable. The vet I went to previously charged for everything. My dogs even received birthday cards in the mail!! What I was looking for was a caring, knowledgeable vet who charges a fair rate for his work. I have found that at Animal Ark.

  • *****

    DOC Lee is a kind and caring man! He does right by the animal not his bank account. We have taking our cats to him for the past 20yrs would not go anywhere else!

    The Best Vet in Denver – There are certain people in this world who really care and love what they do. Dr. Lee O'Donnel is one of those people. He is honest, caring, and most of all, excellent in his craft.

    I have brought multiple animals to him and he has always been fantastic. His schedule is tough to get in, but the care your animal gets is nothing short of amazing.

    His knowledge and experience help him make intelligent and life saving decisions for your pet. I will continue going to him for as long as I live in Denver. I suggest you do as well!

  • *****

    What excellent customer service! Friendly, courteous, polite and personable. You don't find that too often these days.
    I took 2 of my pets to get there rabies vaccines today and I will definitely be back and refer people to this vet.
    It's not an upscale building, so don't be shocked. I'd rather have great service and be treated nice than worry about what a place looks like. It actually has a nice "home like charm" to it.
    Prices are very fair too!

  • *****

    We got our puppy his Rabies shot at a shot clinic at a local pet store by the vet who works at Animal Ark. Even though there was a line of people (and dogs) behind us, he took a lot of time to discuss our questions regarding our dog with us. He is very personable, caring, and seems to be passionate about his job.
    Being new to the Lakewood area, we are happy to have found a vet who is so close to our home!

    I chose Animal Ark about 3 yrs ago when my regular vet didn't have time to see my dog for what I considered a serious situation. (They told me that dogs get old and just tired.)
    Dr. O'Donnell diagnosed her perfectly with a thyroid problem, and she's been fine ever since with proper medication.

    My other dog has always totally UNCONTROLLABLY FREAKED at the vet. When I took him in to Animal Ark for shots, and told them about my dog's paranoia...Dr. O'Donnell OFFERED to go to the car and give my dog the shots. He said "why upset him when he doesn't have to be?"  So he went to the car, and my dog didn't know what hit him
    This guy cares about animals!

    I really like this place! The vet was really nice and he gave us a lot of great information, without us even having to ask. He was very nice and pleasant to be around. Animal Ark is also a lot cheaper then when we take our older doggy to Alameda East. We plan on making Animal Ark our only vets office! :)

  • *****

    Dr. O'Donnell is the best.  He has been my dog's only vet for almost 13 years.  He always explains in detail what a problem may be and gives you options for treatment.  Never a hassle to get in and out and at a very fair price.  I am thankful for this place and his many years of service to my pet.

  • *****

    Dr. Lee Odonell is the most caring and compassionate veterinarian!  He laughs with you and he cries with you. Most importantly, he cares for your beloved pets with every fiber of his being.  He is supported by a staff that cares just as much and gives their all to take care of your loved family member.

    Dr. Odonell is not in the business for the money.  His fees cover what is necessary not what pads his bank account.  

    Recently our family's cat was on death's door.  Dr. Odonell saved his life, and he cared for him around the clock for several days to ensure a full recovery.

    We have taken our animals to Dr Odonell for over a decade, and we will continue to do so for as long as possible!!

    My experience was outstanding. Look no further for a great place to take your pets. It's nice to find a vet who truly cares about the animals and Not the money. Lee has a customer for life.

  • *****

    Great veterinarian - I had to get my cat in somewhere fast because he was having trouble breathing and they got me in right away. They have very reasonable prices. The vet was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. It is a small vet clinic in a house but has a homey feeling and you get more individualized attention than you typically do in a big vet clinic or hospital. I would recommend him to anyone!

  • *****

    I truly have no idea who could ever give Doc Lee a bad review. My family has taken all of our dogs there my entire life as well as our cats. He is a kind and wonderful man who loves animals and his job. He was very emotional when we had to put down our dog that we had had for many years because he cared for her so much. You can tell he genuinely wants what's best for the animals and he would never do a thing to hurt them.

  • *****

    I have been going here for the last 8 years and Lee has been great!!! He has always given me great options instead of jumping right into X-rays and blood samples or anything else extreme. My Pitbull absolutely loves him and his staff, thank you lee for all the great years of service.
