Our Veterinary Services

Our animal hospital in Alpena offers all the services your pet could need. Whether a vaccination booster, dental cleaning, or an annual check-up, we can help! Our veterinary services include:

Kind Considerations for Cats and Dogs

We all know that pets often find veterinary visits stressful and unpleasant. At Sunrise, we do what we can to minimize discomfort in our hospital so you and your pet can relax.

Our animal hospital features two separate waiting areas for dogs and cats. Additionally, we offer designated dog or cat-specific exam rooms. Our cat room includes a cat tree for your feline friend to explore, along with Feliway (calming pheromone) diffusers and a generous spray of Feliway around the room!

If your pet is particularly stressed at the vet, please let us know!  We offer towels sprayed with Feliway to drape over your cat’s carrier, or a flashy bandana sprayed with Adaptil for your petrified pooch. These artificial pheromones can help your pet adapt to stressful places and situations with confidence.

We hope to increase your pet’s comfort so their visits can be more enjoyable and our exams can be easier and more accurate, too! To learn more about Feliway or Adaptil, click the on the product name!

We brought our cat Maizey in for a wellness check and immunizations this morning. The office staff were so nice! Dr. LaCross and Ruth were so gentle with Maizey and were so sweet to her. The services were very affordable. You need to stop by just to say hello to their "Greeter Cats"

I always get 5 star service. I wouldn't go anywhere else.  

The staff is the absolute best!!! 

I would rate five stars in all aspects of the visit very pleased with the great service and prices! Thank you

We love Dr. Heidi! Her enthusiasm is infectious; her love of all living things very apparent. She is gentle and kind with my kitty boys, encouraging and respectful to me. It is very much appreciated!

Staff is always friendly, compassionate and helpful. The doctors are gentle, thorough and knowledgeable. We always leave knowing our pets have been well cared for and we are so grateful for the manner in which they not only care for our fur babies but also the manner in which they care for us.

The staff was AMAZING. They went above and beyond. I would highly recommend this veterinarian practice to anybody looking for a good place to take your pet.

It's the feeling of being with family (the ones you like), safe & trusting. I wouldn't consider taking our two boys anywhere else! Thank you to the doctors and professional staff at Sunrise Vet. 

I have never met more compassionate or caring staff in a veterinary office until I went to Sunrise. They really care about the animals they treat as well as their owners! Kudos to you all!
