Any chance of 'make up' classes for the pups that missed out during restrictions? 6mths? :-)

Awwwww Cosmo you are so cute ❤

Hi Do you have training classes for older puppies? (7months)

WARNING graphic pictures follow! A 'before' and 'after' of one of our recent surgical repairs.

This little guy thought it'd be a great idea to chase some kangaroos. He definitely came off second best and was very lucky not to have damaged more vital organs in his adventures! 😟🤨😳😳

Hopefully he's learnt his lesson.

Let's hope someone can foster this lovely old lady. :(In Foster Care <3

Current Location - Bright, VIC

Some of you may remember the initial post regarding Roxy a couple of weeks ago. She is a gentle older lady who is 12 years young and also happens to be deaf due to her age.

Roxy was found after spending a few days in the forest and has since been waiting in the pound for her owners to collect her. Unfortunately they have not come forward and although she is being well cared for the pound it is not the place for her to be! She now requires a loving foster home with a view to adoption as a matter of urgency.

At this stage we do not have a great deal of information about her, but she does get happy when she sees a lead and goes for her daily strolls with lots of those boxer bum wiggles! A meet and greet can also be arranged if needed.

Roxy's ideal home will include:

- Children aged 6+ years and older, but not essential (she has been in contact with children and was very gentle)
- A warm comfortable bed inside is an absolute must
- We are not sure how she is with cats or dogs at this stage, but she appears very calm, so a desexed male dog may be possible
- Experience with deaf animals preferred, but not definitely not essential
- Someone who is around majority of the time

NOTE: For all who applied for previous dogs and would be considered for Roxy, please EMAIL us and let us know ;-)

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.
