Pet Emergency Treatment is open 24 hours to provide emergency and critical care. We work closely with your pet’s regular veterinarian and send our findings to them for follow up care. It is our intention to specialize predominantly in the emergency treatment of sick and injured animals. For this reason, we don’t perform spays/neuters or dental work.
Pet Emergency Treatment also has a migratory bird permit which allows us to temporarily treat migratory birds; which includes eagles, owls, and other wild birds. We then turn them over to the Bird Treatment and Learning Center and Alaska Wild Bird Rehabilitation for their future needs.
In 2011 alone we cared for over 300 wild birds comprising of 37 species. Included in this count were 4 bald eagles, a falcon, 5 owls, 40 seagulls and numerous ravens, magpies, downy woodpeckers and our favorite; drunk bohemian waxwings.

It’s that time of year again, time to apply for the Permanent Fund Dividend! And you know what that means; another easy opportunity to donate to The Roscoe Fund via Pick. Click. Give. There are always animals in need, and this wonderful charity helps to make sure that those pets don’t suffer for purely financial reasons. Pets don’t understand money, but they do feel pain. So if you have extra funds this year please do help those who cannot help themselves by donating a small amount to this very worthy charity.

I wanted to say thank you and provide you with a very happy tail. Woody is a blind Shih-tzu who was brought to you originally for euthanasia, thankfully you turned the family down. They then brought him to Animal Control for euthanasia where they would not allow them to do that either. After being left there, AACCC called Carol at Kitty and K-9 Connection and we took him into rescue. Woody got the medical treatment he needed and then came to my home for foster (I do not know if you remember, but GerBear was there this summer when she developed bloat). She welcomed him in along with Leo ( another foster). Thanks to KTUU and the Anchorage Daily News, both Leo and Woody got adopted this week! I really wanted you to know about Woody as you were such an important part of keeping him with us. He is such a sweetheart and was a pleasure to foster. His new family ADORES him and we know that this is such a wonderful match.
I have included the link to check out his Happy Tail!
Thank you again and I hope you all enjoyed your holidays.

My Chihuahua was at Pet Emergency Treatment for an abscess that ruptured. He was in a great deal of pain before we arrived, and was bleeding. I was worried the treatment would be too expensive and that we’d have to leave without treatment he needed. The staff at Pet Emergency Treatment were fantastic. DOG received exceptional care and with the help of the Roscoe Fund, he was able to get the treatment + antibiotics he needed. – Kim
