At the Vet

The Alaska SPCA Clinic focuses on services that promote good animal health and reduce or eliminate suffering for dogs, cats, and rabbits across the state.  Our primary focus is spay and neuter procedures, with limited availability for pet exams, dentals and other surgical procedures.  Core vaccinations against diseases found in Alaska are also available.  Pets are not kept overnight under any circumstance.  We are not an emergency walk in clinic.

Client Code of Conduct
In order to provide the very best care for your pet, the Veterinary-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR) requires that you and the treating veterinarian agree to several core understandings:
  • The vet has to be able to examine your pet in person.  We do not do telephone diagnosis or provide treatment without an exam.
  • You must be honest with our team about current medications, observations about appetite and voiding (peeing and pooping) behavior, and whether or not you've followed prior vet instructions.
  • Our team wants to help your pet.  Instructions from techs and support staff must be followed.  If you don't understand why, please ask.
  • Physical or verbal abuse of animals, employees, or other clients will not be tolerated.

Clinic Hours: 

  • 8:00 am - 6:00 pm M-F  Saturday exams are available twice each month.

  • Appointments are REQUIRED FOR spay, neuter, surgery, and dental procedures.  Drop offs for those appointments are from 7:00 am - 7:45 am.   Patients are admitted on a first come, first served basis.  Plan that drop off will take 15-20 minutes, depending on when you arrive.  

  • All animals must be picked up no later than 5:30 pm.

  • UNTIL COVID HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED WE HAVE A MASKING POLICY.  YOU MUST WEAR A MASK FOR ALL IN-PERSON INTERACTIONS WITH OUR STAFF.
