A quick reminder that Cassie is baking cupcakes for the RSPCA on Monday. They’re only $3 each and all proceeds go to a good cause!

Scarlet and I would just like to thank everyone for their thoughts and well wishes.

Scarlet is feeling much improved tonight and though she's far from 100%, is now off her oxygen. Whilst there's still a long road to recovery ahead, at least she's 'out of the woods' now.

Have a fabulous weekend and remember to hug your pets and tell them that you love them! 😉☺️💕

Scarlet, my very elderly Neapolitan Mastiff, is in hospital today for pneumonia. :'(

May this be a tale of caution for everyone.......Scarlet was perfectly fine last night, frolicking around as per usual. However, she started coughing at 3am and by 7am she was gravely ill.

Chest infections happen quickly and with little warning, so take care with the oldies in this cold weather!

Given the devastating drought some of our farmers currently find themselves in, we feel it's our duty to assist in whatever way possible.

Whilst we have already offered to donate medical supplies and also privately donated, we feel we can go further so during Pet Dental Health month, we'll be donating $25 from every dental to the appeal.

(We will also provide a some form of donation during Sept, so watch this space!)

THE ALPINE ANIMAL DOCTORS' PROMISE

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 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.
