Katy Bowman from Anchorage

I have been taking my pets to VCA Alpine Animal Hospital for a little over 7 years now and couldn't imagine taking my pets anywhere else.

I trust all three of the DVM's with the care of my two dogs Maynard and Wyatt throughout their life stages and use their boarding facilities on a regular basis. The staff is always super friendly and treat us like family.

Maynard sees the groomer Mary Miller every other week for a bath and tooth brush and just absolutely loves her!

I definitely recommend VCA Alpine to all Anchorage residents looking for their other family doctor :)
