Our mission: We are passionate about the relationship between horse and rider and work to deliver on a commitment of excellence in veterinary care and communication through a dedicated infrastructure and team focused solely on horses and livestock.
To that end Alpine Animal Hospital has restructured and split into two specialized businesses: Alpine Equine Hospital (AEH) and Alpine Animal Hospital (AAH). The decision to separate the equine business will better enable our large animal team to be fully focused on equine and livestock health. Our veterinary staff consists of Dr Chuck Maker, our veterinary intern and certified veterinary technician and assistants. Together we will continue to serve and celebrate the special human animal bond between horse and rider.
Alpine Equine’s primary goal is simple: superior service and excellence in medical and surgical care.
As a team, Alpine Equine strives to provide the best, most complete and up-to-date medical and surgical care for our patients. We endeavor to do this while creating a staff friendly work environment which encourages professional development and life-long continuing education.
Our philosophy is to combine and integrate the values we feel important in our lives with our daily work: treating our clients, staff and patients with the compassion and respect they deserve. We feel that prompt, competent and reliable 24/7 emergency service is essential to the health and welfare of horses and the peace of mind of their owners.
