In order to minimize your waiting time, we work on an appointment schedule.  While walk-ins are welcome, we cannot guarantee that a doctor will be free to see your pet at any given time. 

Normally, appointments are scheduled from 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM, and again from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.  At this time we are not open on Saturdays due to a staffing shortage. We hope to reopen on Saturdays once we have enough staff. If you have any questions please contact us at (907) 376-7930. 

Surgical and other anesthesia patients are checked in by a doctor between 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM on the morning of service.  Please allow time for the doctor to examine your pet and go over options with you. There may be blood work, radiographs, pain medication, fluids, or other treatment needs that the doctor will discuss with you at the time of admission.  Surgical and dental appointments are normally scheduled Monday thru Friday.

 Daytime emergencies will be handled as expediently as possible. These take priority, and we hope you understand if an emergency disrupts our schedule and delays your appointment. If possible, we will attempt to call you if we are experiencing a time problem that would delay your visit.

If you have a favorite (or non-favorite) doctor you would like to see (or not see), please let us know and we will try to accommodate you. If your pet has a recurring problem or a recheck appointment, please try to make it with the same doctor that saw you initially.


If you have an after-hours emergency, call one of the 24 hour clinics for assistance.
