Carnival Food & Drink

Carnival is an energetic day out, especially for the kids, but there’s plenty to eat and drink to keep your energy levels up for the next big game. The sausage sizzle will be going all day and we haven’t forgotten your pets, with a wide range of pet treats and plenty of fresh water available. All proceeds from the sale of food and soft drinks go to local animal welfare charities.

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.

Blessed Creatures

Our very first Pet Memorial Day and Blessing of the Animals has come and gone, and proved to be a great success. There was plenty of emotion, and not a few tears were shed at the service held on Sunday, 9 October, but there was also plenty of joy and laughter as more than forty of the Alpine region’s animal lovers and their furry families came together to remember the pets that have passed on, and to celebrate the important role that our pets play in the lives of so many people.
