I came in I was in shock and worried for my puppy thinking she might not make it after what had happened with her. I was in such shock that I could not fill in the paper work that they gave me. One of the ladies there sat down with me and helped me fill everything out and calmed me down. My puppy turned out to be just fine.

They were able to save my 86 year old cat and knowing my situation he did not charge me the extra nights to keep him. You could tell that they really care about animals.

Ever since we moved out to Contra Costa County we could not be MORE pleased with Alpine Veterinary Hospital! We have pets who as we all know, are extremely rambunctious and can get into some trouble. Not only is Dr. SS Virk (OUR VERY FAVORITE DR) but the newly appointed Office Manager Billie and her staff are soooo loving to our dogs! I will never go anywhere else if I do not absolutely need to.

On every visit every one treated me and my cat with respect and the doctor and the nurses are very nice to me. I loved our experience but I have a suggestion maybe if you communicated with other resources for your patients like maybe grooming services where we can take our pets for great services like we get here too. Thank you!

I have been taking my pets to Dr. Virk at Alpine for over 15 years. I have had nothing, but the most compassionate care for all of my animals. I've always trusted Dr. Virk's advice in suggesting treatment and care for all of my "babies". I know he wants what's best for the animal and not his bottom line. Unlike other vets, he won't run costly unnecessary tests.

Dominic was extremely polite and helpful both on the phone and in person. He took time with me, he was patient and enthusiastic about his products even though I am from Elk Grove, I will drive the extra distance.

I was very happy with the service given to Mattie everytime she has been here. We've been happy here for many years. The dog gets very excellent care. I appreciate the honesty and knowing how to cure my dog's allergies.
