Think this little guy rates as the cutest patient for the day!?

He was found abandoned in the paddock, but when we checked him over, his back leg was broken. Some x-rays and a cast and he's hot to trot.......well maybe no trotting for a few weeks, but he might muster a totter or two! :D

Urgent Help - we live where there are no vets and no available animal remedies (small Papua New Guinea town) and now realise that we have poisoned our 5 month old 8kg puppy with adult doses of Panadol. She is not looking good and just wants to curl up under the house and be left alone. ... See MoreSee Less

Peter SharplesJust called and phone advice was that the 500mg per day for two days (yesterday and day before) wasn't the main issue (based on no blood in watery messy (possibly wormy) yellow stools of yesterday but most likely a deadly worm infection with not much hope of recovery. True - pup had never been wormed. A second opinion here would be appreciated - thank you.

Alpine Animal HospitalUnfortunately without seeing your dog in person we are unable to offer a second opinion or a diagnosis . For general information please see our handout on paracetamol on our website. Worming your dog regularly is vital to maintain good health , many worms are also zoonotic (can be transferred to humans) so please ensure that you worm all humans in the household as soon as possible.

Peter SharplesThanks for your time and attention. Unfortunately, for us, it is a different world out here. We do what we can, have to be Jacks and/or Jills of all trades in many areas and seek help when we cannot find a local solution, but the latter is often not that easy to come by from a heavily regulated and cautious external first world. But truly appreciate your time and prompt responses. She (Finnegal) has just passed a very runny and very bloody stool.

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 — from Adipose Stem Cell therapy to Vaccinations — 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 hospital is fully equipped with the most up to date and technologically advanced 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 nursing team — Mary, Tegan and Lizzie — are all locals, all professionally qualified, and dedicated to ensuring your animals are treated with compassion and kindness. Our practice is ably 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.
