About Us

Our Mission

Home Together Veterinary Services was founded to provide compassionate and thoughtful care for aging pets and their people. We offer complete overviews of your pet's medical history, thorough and gentle examinations, and treatment options that reflect the goals and wishes of you, the in-home caregiver.


We believe that communication, respect, and collaboration with our clients leads to better outcomes for our animal patients. We provide support for our clients, as they process the experiences and emotions of caring for and saying goodbye to their beloved companions.

Who We Are


Ashley Portmann, DVM, CHPV

Veterinarian and Owner

Dr. Ashley Portmann graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 and spent the first 8 years of her career as a small animal general practitioner. Practicing in Denver and Oregon, Ashley loved seeing the strong and special bonds between her human clients and their animal companions. In the spring of 2018, she established Home Together Veterinary Services to pursue her passion for geriatric and aging pets.


Ashley completed many hours of continuing education courses and case studies through the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC.) In 2019, she officially became a Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian (CHPV), making her one of only 2 certified hospice vets on the Western Slope!

Ashley and her husband moved to Gunnison, CO in 2018 and have loved being part of this vibrant and cohesive community. In her spare time, she enjoys biking, hiking, skiing, yoga, cooking, and exploring all the beautiful places of Colorado. Her constant animal inspirations are her pets: dog Twinkie, and 3 crazy cats: Walter, Marvin, and Jolene.
