WARNING! Graphic video

Danni from Reach Out Wildlife Australia & Chris from Kangaloola Wildlife Shelter Inc. have been stalking this kangaroo for weeks to try to dart her. We knew this was likely an abscess but needed to have her sedated for closer examination.

So very satisfying, but very pungent! 😆🤢🤢

WARNING: Graphic photo!

I do love a small incision and pretty closure. ☺❤

This is the size of a 'normal' uterus and ovaries that we see during a routine spay.

The yellow line is the incision that I make to extract it all. 😊

Damn...I wish my Gyno was as neat as you Bec!

Our girl had her desexing done with yourselves... Recovered so well, thanks so much Bek

I always thought our little Bonnie’s desexing scar (from our old vet in Melbourne) was way to big for her little Westie body. This is mind-blowing - you are an artist as well as an angel 😇


What an awesome job, well done :)

I won’t show the photo to Abby! I love your needlework!

Interesting 🧐

Neat as a pin Bek ripper job you

Nice work, Dr Bek. 👌

Last minute caesarian.........what a way to end the day!

Gotta love new puppies, they bring so much joy to all! ❤❤

PSA For anyone that's concerned about the tube still in mum, that's the perfect brachycephalic wake up - aware, but sedate enough to keep the tube in as long as possible cos they need ALLLLL the oxygen they can get. 😊👍👍

Our full service Veterinary Hospital provides quality care for all animals.

Since 2009, when Dr. Rebekah Day, BVSc (Dr. Bek) first opened a small clinic in Porepunkah, Alpine Animal Doctors has grown to become the ‘most trusted’ veterinary practice in the region. Our clients and patients come from across the Alpine region — from Myrtleford, Yackandandah and Beechworth to Bright, Harrietville and Mt Beauty.

With an A-Z of almost 350 veterinary services available our team is equipped to provide the optimum level of care for all conditions, and for all animal species, great or small, including farm livestock.

Our clinic is fully equipped with the most up to date equipment available, with state-of-the-art facilities the equal of any capital city-based specialist veterinary facility. We are constantly re-evaluating and upgrading our equipment and facilities to ensure that our patients receive only the very best treatment outcomes — the same level of care that we would want for our own animal family.

Dr. Bek’s team Includes our newly appointed Dr Rachael Harfield and our amazing nurses Mary, Cassie, Emily and Maddie — are all locals, all professionally qualified or currently studying, and dedicated to ensuring your animals are treated with compassion and kindness. Our practice is skillfully and successfully managed by Mark, Dr. Bek’s partner.

Most importantly, everyone at Alpine Animal Doctors loves animals just as much as you do. It’s why we do what we do. Our high tech equipment and advanced facilities are important, but, more than anything else, what makes us different is our people and our dedication.

Our promise is that we will never stop striving to achieve excellence in the delivery of animal healthcare. And we will never stop caring.
