With aspirations of serving the community they live in, husband and wife veterinarians Dr. Kevin Inman and Dr. Liz Lawrence established Family Veterinary Hospital in 2010. Both Dr. Kevin and Dr. Liz graduated from Colorado State University Veterinary School in 2000.
We are committed to the health and happiness of your companion. Our goal is to offer the most complete, compassionate care in the mountain community. Our complement of services includes basic and advanced dental care, wellness services (vaccinations and routine lab work), diagnosing and treating internal diseases, acupuncture, laser therapy, and stem cell therapy. We also offer a wide range of surgical services from routine spay and neuter, to abdominal surgery, lump removals, and orthopedics such as cruciate ligament repairs.
Both Dr. Inman and Dr. Lawrence are experienced in emergency care and are able to help your beloved pet when they need it the most. Because we know that emergencies can happen at any time of the day, we take calls after hours. If it is an emergency we won’t be able to handle, we can refer you to the proper facility.
As a native of Evergreen, Dr. Inman is pleased to be serving his hometown, and both he and Dr. Lawrence are grateful for a chance to help our Mountain’s pets!
We thank you for taking the time to learn more about us, and look forward to caring for you and your pets.
Meet Our Veterinarians
Kevin Inman, DVM
A native of Evergreen, owner Dr. Kevin Inman is proud to be practicing veterinary medicine in his hometown. He has had a passion for animals for as long as he can remember and believes his early experiences with his family’s Dalmatian and Irish Setter set him on the path to being a veterinarian. Dr. Inman loves that he can use his skills to not only heal his patients but also to make a difference in people’s lives, and he relishes being able to share in the remarkable bond between humans and their four-legged friends.
Dr. Inman attended Colorado State University for both his undergraduate and veterinary degrees. After obtaining his bachelor’s in biology in 1994, he went on to receive his doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2000. As an undergrad, he served as vice president of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service fraternity; in veterinary school, he was president of Colorado State University’s student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
A member of the Denver Area Veterinary Medical Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association, Dr. Inman is particularly interested in dentistry, preventative medicine and emergency medicine. He is married to Dr. Lawrence and together they have four children as well as a cat named Shiloh and two dogs named Baxter and Lilith. Cherry Rose, a dumbo rat, is their childrens’ pet. When he is not caring for pets at Family Veterinary Hospital, he likes to spend his time skiing, hiking, fishing, drawing, wood carving and playing with his children – both the four two-legged ones and those of the four-legged variety.
Elizabeth Lawrence, DVM, MS
Like many young girls Dr. Liz dreamed at an early age of becoming a veterinarian. Now, living her dream in Evergreen she knows how fortunate she is to be working with the best clients and pets she could ask for. A native of Big Bear Lake California (an area very similar to Evergreen) she remembers “practicing” on her dog Candy, a very patient Australian shepherd mix. Candy continues to serve as an inspiration to her along with all of her current and past pets and patients.
Dr. Liz received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from UCLA in 1992 – GO BRUINS! There she was on the women’s rowing team and would love to get back into it if anyone out there needs a seat filled…. She continued studies in Virology at UC Davis, earning a master’s degree in 1996. From there she made the interstate move to Colorado, earning her doctorate of veterinary medicine degree from CSU in 2000. She was recognized as Senior of The Year by the American Animal Hospital Association. Her professional interests include surgery, nutrition, acupuncture, geriatrics, and emergency medicine. She feels honored to have the opportunity to treat patients with the best attitude, and is constantly humbled by their willingness to allow us to help them.
Married to Dr. Kevin, she also shares her home with four wonderful, rambunctious children, a 17-year old cat, an Australian shepherd mix, a Boerboel mastiff, a rat, and a bunny rabbit. As a result, she has no spare time but does enjoy a good book when she can squeeze one in.
