Read What Our Clients Say

  • "With four dogs and one cat, I get to know my vets! A friend recommended Alpine after I had a rather bad experience with another vet 5 years ago and I have been grateful ever since. From a 4 1/2 hour gut surgery, after Labrador 1 gorged himself with gravel, to routine vaccines, the docs at Alpine are the BEST! They don't rush into procedures to line their pockets...they sincerely care about my furry family and their staff are all so kind and professional."
