  • Patrick Kalenzi, DVM
    Veterinarian and Practice Owner

    Born in Uganda to Rwandese refugee Tutsi parents, I began life in a world of segregation, civil war, and abject poverty. Unable to return to the war-torn place of my origin at the time—and plagued by violent discrimination in my adopted country—I fought to find safe haven. As a child, the only constants were my grandfather, our cows and dogs. Because of Grandpa’s wisdom and our bond, I decided to pursue our love of animals as my profession. This is why I became a veterinarian.

    Dr. Kalenzi studied Veterinary medicine at Makerere University, Uganda; one of the best universities in Africa.  He moved to America to advance his training with an internship in Kentucky and to give his family a better life.  He took the American Veterinary Association required tests; ECFVG/AVMA (at Mississippi State University) to get licensed in the United States. 

    Today, Dr. Kalenzi is the owner of two locations where he regularly practices at, 'Niwot Veterinary Clinic' and it's sister location 'Rock Creek Veterinary Hospital'
