Associate Veterinarian: Jessica McGowan 


Dr. Jessica is a Fort Collins native. She developed a love for animals, science and the outdoors at a very early age. After completing her undergraduate, masters and doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University she was fortunate enough to begin her career with an experienced and well respected Vet Dr Frank at City Park Animal Hospital. 

When Dr. McGowan isn’t spending time with her patients and patients families she enjoys her own animals, currently limited to dogs and chickens (but hopefully some day a hedgehog or two). She loves to travel and enjoys the outdoors and the craft beer scene here in Fort Collins with her husband.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "I found my favorite vet clinic! Dr. Frucci and his staff are so welcoming and loving toward me and my dogs, giving me lots of great advice, and always having my dogs' comfort as the priority. We are so lucky to have found City Park Animal Clinic!!!"
    -Diane H.
  • "We moved to Fort Collins and needed a new Veterinarian, because we lived nearby at the time we found Dr. Frank by chance. Our husky was in a critical stage and close to dying during the 2013 floods, Dr. Frank actually walked across a closed bridge to administer a shot to our sweet girl. We are so fortunate we found such a passionate Vet."
