Carnival King and Queen

At all the famous Carnivals around the world it’s all about the costumes. In Trinidad and Jamaica, in Rio and at Mardi Gras in New Orleans, crazily colourful costumes are a big part of the fun of Carnival.

Everybody dresses up in wild and wacky outfits featuring feathers and boas and big head dresses, creating a really colourful spectacle. We want Dr. Bek’s Carnival to be the same. One day we want our little country Carnival to feature its very own parade, complete with floats!

Carnival Sponsors & Supporters

Putting on an event like Carnival at the Vets is a mammoth exercise for a small rural veterinary hospital like Alpine Animal Doctors. It just wouldn’t be possible without the very generous support of our sponsors, and the help of our supporters and Friends of Carnival.

Whether they’re a veterinary trade sponsor, a local business donating goods or service or a volunteer giving up their time for free, so many people help us out in so many ways. Together, it’s they who help make Dr. Bek’s Big Day Out for Pets a succes, and a really fun time for everyone involved.

Microchips at Carnival

Alpine Animal Doctors have a programme that aims to see every dog and cat in the Alpine region implanted with a microchip. We really want to see that no pet from the Shire ever gets lost.
At this year’s Carnival at the Vets Dr. Bek will be offering a microchip session at a substantially reduced price.

About Carnival

Carnival at the Vets is one of a number of community projects initiated by Alpine Animal Doctors. Throughout the year we organise various events, open days and education programmes which are open to the public.

We get involved in these things because we love the community in which we live and work, and because we believe that a veterinary hospital is more than just a business and should also be an integral and active part of the community. Our patients are a part of your family and that makes them a part of our community too.
