                                                           James Ziegler, DVM

Dr. Ziegler comes to us after serving as a general practice veterinarian on the Front Range for eleven years. Practice before that included working at the Aspen and Carbondale Animal Hospitals for one year and a one year rotating internship at Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital. While growing up in the mountains west of Denver, Dr. Ziegler always wanted to become a veterinarian. A long detour included becoming a Certified Veterinary Technician at Colorado Mountain College which brought him to the Roaring Fork Valley in 1986. While attending CMC, Dr. Z. worked at a local ranch and other businesses which built character and a strong work ethic.

With becoming a veterinarian still in mind, he commuted from this area to Mesa State College where he earned a bachelor’s degree. Finally in 1995 Dr. Z. left the valley to attend veterinary college and graduated four years later from Colorado State University. Now he is excited for this new opportunity to return to this paradise and the wonderful people who live here. Dr. Ziegler is very grateful to Dr. Leake for the chance take the helm as owner of Red Hill Animal Health Center. Dr. Z is also grateful for the competent and friendly staff who have made him feel at home.

Dr. Z. and his wife, Kelly, are ecstatic to make Carbondale their new home. Dr. Z has great love and respect for the outdoors and plans to spend his precious free time hiking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and tending his barbecue. Dr. Z. also shares his life with a German Shorthaired Pointer – Katie, Golden Retriever – Otis, Chihuahua – Chowie, and cat – Ranger.

Dr. Ziegler is a member of the CVMA, AVMA and AAHA and has special interests in wound management, soft tissue surgery, and lamenesses. Dr. Z. encourages old friends and new to come by and say “hello” any time.


Natalia Taylor, DVM

Dr. Natalia Taylor was born and raised in Cali, Colombia and moved with her family to Miami when she was 15 years old. She attended The University of Florida to complete her bachelors degree in Animal Science and Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. After graduating veterinary school Dr. Taylor and her husband moved to Chicago, IL where she practiced general medicine for three years while achieving the most outstanding doctor award within her large practice. She then moved back to Miami for a year where she practiced as an overnight emergency veterinarian. Throughout her years in practice Dr. Taylor has developed an interest in emergency medicine, internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, and preventative medicine.

Natalia and her husband Drew decided to trade the ocean for the mountains and move to the roaring fork valley to pursue an active outdoor lifestyle, start a family and build community ties. Their furry family consists of 2 rescue dogs, Café and Capone, and their cat Pepina. Dr. Taylor loves spending time with her family and friends, cooking and eating delicious food, hiking, and reading. Dr. Taylor is fluent in English and Spanish.
