Highland Animal Clinic is a well-established, rapidly growing, privately owned, companion animal practice in south Anchorage. Family owned since 1972, we currently support 2 veterinarians.
Our family practice culture focused on patient care and seasoned staff are why clients choose Highland. We are praised for our honest and cooperative approach to medicine, offering owners (and doctors) options when it comes to treatment, and we maintain close client relationships. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what our clients have to say:
“Highland Animal Clinic is that rare gem that still captures the values and atmosphere of a small, independent clinic, while being up to date and educated about advancements in vet care.”
“What has always impressed me and made me feel comfortable is not only their ability to take care of the health and care of my animals but to also handle any of my animals when there was an emergency situation. The caring they showed when my dog had to have emergency blockage surgery was amazing.”
“For me, not only as a pet parent, but also a rescue partner, what sets Highland Animal Clinic apart from other clinics is that I know my pet is going to get the full attention of the professional staff and I will get all the information I need to make informed decisions. I think they loved her as much as I did, which is not something that can be found at a lot of clinics, especially large corporate clinics. Options are discussed, and advice is honest and sound.”
All clinics can boast about their equipment, but it is the client and staff relationships that make a clinic a great place to work. Staff choose Highland because we offer the flexibility of a small private practice to ensure a strong work/life balance (typically 4x10 schedule, no nights or ER calls), and foster close staff relationships with meetings twice a month, picnics, dinners, movies, and a monthly potluck.
“The work family that Highland Animal Clinic has to offer is one of the strongest bonds I’ve found while working in the veterinary field. The amount of support and love is felt even on day one at the job and grows with each day.”
Highland maintains a diverse case load including medicine, dentistry and surgery, and great staff to doctor ratio with 28 years of combined LVT experience and 20 years non-licensed experience among three licensed technicians and two technician assistants (one pursuing/testing for LVT licensure in 2020). Did I mention one is Alaska’s only LVT specialized in Veterinary Dentistry? We also have multiple local specialists available for consultations and referrals.
