Dr. Taylor, along with other distinguished alumni, will be recognized by the Colorado State University Alumni Association at their annual Distinguished Alumni Award dinner on April 29.
If you think Dr. Robert A. Taylor looks familiar, there is a reason. He has been featured in more than 100 episodes of Animal Planet’s cable television show “Emergency Vets,” the number one rated show in their daytime line-up. The series is filmed at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital, a 24-hour emergency hospital with a staff of more than 100 people. The hospital also is the home to the Colorado Canine Sports Medicine/Rehabilitation Clinic, the first such full-time physical therapy clinic in the Rocky Mountain region. Dr. Taylor is the owner of this prestigious and increasingly famous veterinary hospital.
Besides being a successful business owner, Dr. Taylor is a committed public servant. He formerly served as president of the Recycled Racers Group, an organization that finds homes for retired greyhound racing dogs. Dr. Taylor also was a past Board Member for the Colorado Humane Association, the Denver Zoological Association, and the Morris Animal Foundation. He volunteered at Colorado State University when orthopeadic surgeons were scarce, taking time away from his burgeoning practice. He later went on to serve on Colorado State’s Animal Cancer Center advisory board.
Dr. Taylor is published in numerous scientific and veterinary medical journals and has published several books including Canine Sports Medicine and the Manual of Post Operative Care. Dr. Taylor also is an esteemed lecturer and has spoken nationwide before many different organizations including the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. He also has spoken internationally, delivering lectures in Brazil, Chile, Italy, Argentina, Venezuela, and England on orthopedics, arthroscopy and physical therapy.
Dr. Taylor received his bachelor’s (1968) and DVM (1970) from Texas A&M. He graduated with his master’s degree in veterinary surgery from Colorado State University in 1977. He is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
