About PET Emergency Treatment
PET Inc. was originally formed in the late 1970’s by a group of veterinarians in Anchorage who saw the need to offer critical care services to patients after hours. Since its origin, PET Inc. has grown into a dedicated 24/7 emergency and critical care facility and is now the oldest hospital in Anchorage. For the past 40 years, we have been a forerunner in pet emergency services in the state of Alaska, continuously setting new standards for diagnostic technologies and therapies including our recent launch of stem cell therapy and in-house stem cell production. In addition to our commitment to staying abreast on new and emerging technologies, our sole priority is to offer the highest quality emergency and specialty health care to best serve our pet patients and the people who love them.
