Our five wonderful veterinarians help to make Alpine Veterinary Hospital a perfect blend of “experienced wisdom” and “new passion”. They come from a variety of backgrounds and each have different skills and interests while also fulfilling the role as one of the ever-decreasing population as truly mixed animal, all species veterinarians! Our remarkable technicians help handle the animals in a professional and safe manner, and aid the veterinarians in all things technical: surgical anesthesia, wound prep, intubation and catheterization, inpatient nursing, laboratory sample prep and interpretation, exam room assistance, record keeping, and much much more. Our receptionists are our center stage stars: they efficiently organize and set the schedule, happily greet clients and patients alike, answer all calls, process payments, input records, and keep the clinics running like well-oiled machines. Our wonderful cleaners are who keep the clinics looking, feeling, and smelling amazing (which is no easy task in veterinary medicine)! Our practice is blessed beyond words to have such a wonderful staff. Read on for more interesting facts!
