Northwest Animal Hospital is proud to have been part of the Colorado Springs community for more than 30 years.  Northwest was founded by Dr. John Sudduth, a 1977 graduate of Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine, along with his wife Lori and family.  The practice began operations on December 1st, 1984 (initially as Cedar Ridge Animal Clinic).  In 1993, the Sudduths purchased land and constructed Northwest Plaza.  The name of the practice was changed to Northwest Animal Hospital and Pet Care Center during the transition.

Northwest Animal Hospital has remained at this location for these many years, where it continues to carry on the proud tradition and reputation of excellence initially instilled by Dr. Sudduth.  After over 40 years of practice, Dr. Sudduth retired and still resides here in Colorado Springs where he is an active member of the community.
