ROCK CREEK FAMILY
Our Rock Creek Veterinarian
Dr. Patrick Kalenzi
"One of the nicest and best veterinarians in the entire area. He is extremely knowledgeable and is only looking out for your pet and they're well-being. He tells you up front what things will cost, what things you don't need and doesn't overcharge. He is one of the best out there."
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.

I studied Veterinary medicine at Makerere University, Uganda; one of the best universities in Africa. I moved to America to advance my training with an internship in Kentucky and to give my family a better life. I took the American Veterinary Association required tests; ECFVG/AVMA (at Mississippi State University) to get licensed in USA. I worked at a private practice in Boulder for 14 years and now the time came for me to own my practice.
Dr. Kalenzi, what are some of your favorite places?
My favorite places to hang out are; home with my family, working out at the gym and of course being at work to keep all pets happy and healthy!
