Clinic Policies

We are scheduled out 6-8 weeks for appointments and procedures. We have maximized our schedule, allowing us to see as many patients as possible without compromising the quality of care we provide. Please take a moment to review our current clinic policies below.

Clinic Policies and Procedures


  • Alaska Veterinary Clinic requires a deposit for appointments. This includes exams and surgeries. The deposit holds your appointment and goes towards the exam or surgery scheduled for that day.


  • Alaska Veterinary Clinic requires at least 24 hours advance notice of a cancellation for an appointment or surgery.

  • Failure to do so will result in a forfeit of your deposit.

  • Advanced notice of a cancellation allows us to fill the appointment slot with another animal who needs to be seen.

Late Appointments

  • Your time is valuable, and so is ours. If you are late to your scheduled appointment, you may be subject to a late fee if we are still able to see you. If we are unable to see you, we will reschedule your appointment.

  • When you are late to your appointment, it impacts the quality of care we are able to provide to your pet as well as other pets scheduled during the day.
