Alpine Veterinary Hospital is a primary care full-service veterinary hospital offering complete medical, surgical and dental procedures for your pets.

Wellness and Preventative Care

Your pet benefits greatly from regular wellness examinations. At Alpine Veterinary Hospital, we recommend that all pets receive a comprehensive physical examination at least once a year. Regular exams allow us to detect symptoms of disease and illness in your pet and treat them before your pet's quality of life is affected. Our preventative care includes:

  • Annual wellness examinations and laboratory screening
  • Senior and geriatric wellness examinations and laboratory screening
  • Dental Care
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Behavioral counseling
  • Parasite control
  • Disease prevention
  • Immunizations: vaccination and disease prevention recommendations have changed significantly over the last few years. Our doctors will work with you to help decide what's right for your pets lifestyle.

Puppies and Kittens:

If you are a new puppy or kitten owner we spend a lot of time speaking with you about training, caring for you pet, vaccine protocols, and about preventative medicine. We realize how much information is available to our owners. We want to assist with making practical recommendations that fit with the various lifestyles of pets and their owners.

Senior Pet Care:

Scheduling regular pet wellness visits is one of the most important steps for an owner of a mature pet. Senior care is needed to catch and delay the onset or progress of disease, and for the early detection of problems such as organ failure and Osteoarthritis. Laboratory work for senior pets typically include the following: urinalysis, complete blood cell count, chemistry and blood pressure. Our veterinarians will work with you to devise a geriatric health care program that will ensure your aging pet stays comfortable and happy in their golden years.

Permanent Identification - Microchipping:

A microchip is a small passive electrical device that is a standard means of permanent identification for your pet. It is placed within the subcutaneous space (under the skin) of your pet through a simple injection. In the event that your pet may get lost, he/she can be easily found if scanned for a microchip. All local shelters and veterinary hospitals are equipped with a microchip scanner. To register your pet after a microchip is placed, please go to:

Health certificate

If you are planning on traveling internationally with your pet, please contact the Alpine Veterinary Hospital as soon as you know your pet's travel plans. Some countries require preparation up to 6 months in advance. Our doctors are all USDA accredited veterinarians and will be able to help you. Information to be provided to us prior to your appointment includes: country or countries you will be traveling to, dates of travel, microchip identification and printed copies of vaccines. If your patient does not have a microchip, we can provide one.
