Cookie Policy

Here at Alpine Veterinary Hospital, we pride ourselves on having high quality, top of the line medical and surgical treatment of all animals. This service includes mainly birds, but also pocket-pets (e.g. hamsters, rabbits, rats, etc.), lizards, and amphibians to a lesser degree.

Radiography

Our X-Ray machine is versatile in that it can be used in-house and in the field! Radiographs allow us to see things that we are unable to feel or see with the naked eye. Many diagnoses require the use of x-rays such as wing fractures, bullet wounds, egg binding, lung tumors, and much more.

Surgery

Our doctors have performed many routine surgeries on pocket-pets (e.g. spays) as well as more complicated wing fracture repairs in birds. Our veterinary technicians are confident and proficient at maintaining anesthesia on many species of animals and are a great help to the doctors during these sometimes tricky procedures.

Dentistry

These critters frequently need beak and teeth trimming.

In-house Laboratory

We have blood machines that help us to evaluate multiple parameters in our small and large animals including CBC and Blood Chemistries. A CBC, or Complete Blood Count, assesses the animal’s white blood cells (infection fighting cells), red blood cells (oxygen carrying cells), and platelets (clotting cells). The Chemistry panels help us to evaluate the health of multiple organ systems including the liver and kidney.

Our doctors and veterinary technicians are also proficient at preparing microscope slides in order to evaluate blood and tissue smears, cytologies, bacterial samples, fecal floats, urine sediments, and more.
