    Dr. David Yedo
    DVM & Owner

    David Yedo grew up on the property where he eventually built his practice of 43 years, Allbrick Veterinary Clinic LLC, in Federal Heights, Colorado. He has lived in Westminster and Federal Heights his whole life and he’s proud to have stayed and developed a thriving practice in his home-town community. 

    He knew from a young age his career would involve animals. As a child he raised over a hundred homing pigeons. His other pets included bantam chickens, goats, snakes, squirrels, chipmunks, dogs, cats, and a turtle. According to his mother, Ruby, it wasn’t always easy. She tells about coming home to find that David’s garter snake had given birth to 20 little green babies, all of whom were small enough to escape the wire top cage and were happily exploring the entire house. She put an end to certain animals in the house. His other time as a youth was spent with confirmation showing of German short-haired pointers, helping with the 60-run dog kennel built by his family, and the Boy Scouts of America (where he earned his Eagle award with two palms).

    In school, David’s other passion was track. He participated and excelled in long distance running. He set several records that were never broken at Ranum High School. He chose Colorado State University for college where he earned an B.S. in microbiology, followed by his veterinary degree.

    After finishing school, he worked for a brief period in veterinary medicine in the area and then decided to start Allbrick Veterinary Clinic in 1982. As he looks back over the 43-year history of the business, he’s still surprised how much its changed. Today, everything in the practice is computerized from appointments to patient files. In the beginning it was just pieces of paper. David was also the only doctor for the first 22 years. Now, there are a total of four doctors to keep things flowing smoothly.
