PLEASE NOTE!  It is ESSENTIAL that you communicate directly with Dr. Maguire by email BEFORE making any plans to come to Grand Junction.  I need to learn the details of your dog’s condition before you make an appointment.  After communicating directly with Dr. Maguire, an appointment can be scheduled with Dr. Maguire at Amigo Animal Clinic (970-245-0210).

MRI and Spinal surgery for disk related problems in your dog will cost $7000-$10,000 on the front range of Colorado (Fort Collins, Denver, Colorado springs) and in other metropolitan areas nationwide. The same services can be provided by a highly qualified and experienced board certified Neurologist/Neurosurgeon in Grand Junction for $4800. Why Pay more? Why take your dog to a general surgeon when you can go to a board certified vet with specific training in Neurosurgery (with 20 years experience)? Why settle for a CT scan (cat scan) when you can get an MRI?

“What’s the catch?  Don’t you get what you pay for?”

No catch.  Providing a high level of care at the most affordable price is my priority.  My practice is small, independent and with relatively low overhead as compared to bigger specialty practices in metropolitan areas.  I can therefore pass savings on to you the pet owner.  Most intervertebral disk related spinal problems in dogs (and cats) are curable…they should not be cost prohibitive.


“How will it work?  What time commitment should I anticipate?”

Step 1:  Discuss your pet's case with Dr. Maguire directly by contacting him on the CONTACT page

Step 2:  Schedule your Monday- Wednesday appointment with Dr. Maguire by calling Amigo Animal Clinic (970-245-0210).  Appointments should be made no later than 3pm.  

Your dog can be scheduled for MRI the evening of your appointment, and if needed, have surgery the following morning.  Most of Dr. Maguire’s surgery patients can be discharged back to your care the morning following surgery, or in some cases, that afternoon the day of surgery.  This is dependent in part on the pre operative condition of your pet and the precise nature of the disk herniation.


“Are payment plans available?”

No, payment in full is expected before your pet goes home with you.  CareCredit, bank loans (Wells Fargo veterinary loans), or insurance claims need to be arranged and managed by you.
