Dear Clients and Friends,

Fall is approaching quickly, and I know we’re all ready for a break from the heat and the smoke. Along with the (hopefully) cooler weather on the horizon, there will also be some big changes taking place with my practice.

As many of you might know, I stopped accepting new clients early this year in anticipation of making a life change, and I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a full time position with the Denver Dumb Friends League and will be taking over veterinary duties for the Harmony Equine Center in Franktown, CO, beginning in September 2021.

In every way possible, this is my dream job, and I feel incredibly blessed to be able to join the team at the League! In addition to veterinary duties at the equine center, I will be actively participating in ongoing cruelty investigations, conduction forensic investigations, giving presentations, writing reports, and providing care for abused and neglected horses.

What will this mean for my clients and friends in Steamboat? Initially I will be commuting to Franktown for my shifts and I will be in Steamboat three days a weeks for a while to wrap up some commitments to clients. I will be planning to close down the practice by November 2, 2021 and will eventually relocate to the front range. You will always be able to get copies of all your records, so there’s no hurry. My email and cell phone numbers will not change.

It’s been a good run and I have loved knowing you and caring for your animals. Thank you all for being wonderful clients and for allowing me to share in your lives. I am looking forward to the new chapter in my life, although I will miss seeing you all, and will especially miss my beloved patients in Routt County.

Kindest Regards,

Dr Courtney Diehl
