  • What a great experience

    -Sarah K. from Eagle River, AK
    Pet Name: Riley

    When my young and ornery yellow lab Riley tore up a few socks and decided to swallow them, we had hopes he might pass them. But sure enough a few days later he started vomiting and not wanting to eat. We called the VCA Eagle River Animal Hospital and asked them what we should do. Even though they were booked they got him in right away and x-rays showed that the socks were stuck in his intestines. They got him in for emergency surgery and after a day or two stay at the hospital he was right as rain and a happy puppy! If it wasn't for the quick actions and supportive staff at VCA Eagle River I hate to think what could've happened! Thanks so much! He has yet to eat any other objects, but if he does we will again put him in their hands!

  • Sassy's visit

    -Elaine Smith from Anchorage, AK
    Pet Name: Sassy

    I am new to the Anchorage area and was referred to VCA Eagle River by a friend. I found the personnel there to be very friendly and the doctors to be very thorough with their exam of Sassy.I would highly recommend VCA Eagle River to my friends.

  • Can't Say Enough Good

    -Janet Seitz from Eagle River, AK
    Pet Name: Foxy, Max, Lance

    My animals have always received excellent care, but more importantly compassionate care. The doctors and staff are always going above and beyond to give my "kids" their care. When boarding, the kids come home spoiled and I feel good knowing they are in a safe place. When I had a house fire, these wonderful people were there -- helping me and my animals in all the ways they could and more than I imagined!

  • These ladies rock

    -Alli from Eagle River, AK
    Pet Name: Olivia

    I have been bringing my pets here for years and I just found their website. I want to say that I appreciate everything they have done. They have always been able to get me in in the event of an emergency, and are very welcoming and friendly. I just LOVE them! I highly recommend them.

  • I trust them with my animals

    -Kathy Day from Chugiak, AK
    Pet Name: Numerous

    My animals have been patients at VCA Eagle River since it opened. The doctors are wonderful and the staff all are committed to helping our animals. I have numerous cats and dogs and would not trust their care anyway else. Many people are put off by VCA because it's a corporation. However, their service can't be matched, their prices are fair and the hours are great for someone who works. I would highly recommend VCA Eagle River.

  • Eyes that Now Can See

    -Patty Hickok from Eagle River, AK
    Pet Name: Jessie

    Pet Image Our beautiful Jessie, a 5 year old St Bernard exhibited some problems in one of her eyes. We promptly took her to Dr. Hanlon who diagnosed her with entropion and told us about the importance of having surgery asap. Jessie had the surgery and went home. However, we were totally impressed by all the aftercare that Dr. Hanlon and the staff provided to Jessie as she had to stop by several times for additional checks since it was her eye that was at risk. Each time we went everyone remembered her name, she was treated promptly and now her beautiful eyes are just as bright as ever and she is loving her walks and all her activities. We thank Dr. Hanlon and everyone at VCA Eagle River for the wonderful care they provided our "daughter" Jessie - we have been loyal customers and this is another example why we continue to trust you all with our pets :-)

  • I only trust my beloved pets to VCA Eagle River

    -Kathy Day from Chugiak, AK
