  • Dr. Townsend is the BEST

    -Joann and John Herring from Anchorage, AK
    Pet Name: Grizzly, Bear, Matty, Domino, and Nicholas

    My son and I have used Dr. Townsend for years and years. He is a wonderful, understanding, and truly a great doctor. He has tended all of our dogs - guide dogs and adopted dogs for years. I don't know what all of my doggies would do without his care.

  • Excellent Care

    Pet Name: Angel name is Angel Keeth and I am from Tucson, Arizona. I traveled to Anchorage to have surgery on my ACL. I've had my surgery which went perfect and now I am in PT. I would like to thank Dr. Townsend, Dr. Lewis and Dr. Keele and the wonderful staff for all the excellent care ie: before, during and after surgery. I would also like to thank Savannah Loshe, manger, for all the care and planning of this procedure. Also Dan and Laura Keeth send thanks to the entire staff.

  • They're the Best

    -Sue Davies from Anchorage, AK

    We have been clients of East Anchorage Veterinary Hospital since 1991. They have served us well, with our own family pets plus all of the rescues that we have brought to them. They have always treated our rescues with as much care & respect as any beloved family pet. Dr Townsend, Dr Lewis & Dr Keele are all just wonderful. They will listen to your concerns and work out the best plan for your pet. The staff is great also. They are very caring and all love animals.

  • Wonderful, compassionate care

    -Opal from Madison, WI

    We used VCA East Anchorage for the 10 years we lived there. The doctors are wonderful, skilled, and compassionate. Over the years, we've had injuries, illnesses, and end-of-life concerns for our dogs. Every time we visited, we received all the information we needed to make decisions about care for our dogs. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

  • A Great Veterinarian

    -Rebecca Keech from Anchorage, AK
    Pet Name: Tootsie

    Dr. Townsend has been my vet of choice since I arrived in Alaska in 1989. He has seen me through the loss of my cat in 2000 and is now helping me through the unfortunate and unavoidable illness of my Brussells Griffon. He has performed several surgeries on my pets in the past and done an excellent job. I trust Dr. Townsend above all other veterinarians I've known over the years.

  • past and present

    -Andi from Anchorage, AK
    Pet Name: P.I.T.A.

    I have been bringing my pets to East Anchorage VCA for well over 35 years. I have seen many doctors who begin there and move to other clinics and a few who even retired. The entire staff has always made me feel that my pets, my family, were the most important patients of all. Their dedication, humor, professionalism is above and beyond excellent. My current fur family I know is always in excellent care.
