Highland Animal Clinic has provided quality veterinary care to Alaskan’s pets since 1972. Located in south Anchorage, Alaskan owned and operated by Dr. Jennifer Tuomi, we have been providing preventative medicine for all life stages for over 40 years. Her father Dr. Jack Tuomi, who previously owned the practice, and her mother, Dr. Pam Tuomi, continue to work part time, making us a true family practice. In 2016 Dr. Jen was joined by Dr. Laura Noel, allowing us to create a more flexible schedule and accommodate our growing practice. Please see Our Services section to learn all about the services we provide. We also offer a wide selection of pet supplies, such as Science Diet and Iams pet food/prescription diets, over the counter medications, shampoos, conditioners, toys and leashes.

PATIENT ARRIVALS: For you and your pet’s protection, and that of others, we ask that your pet be controlled while arriving and while in the waiting area. All animals must arrive in an appropriate carrier or on a leash.

FIRST VISIT: If you are new to the clinic, printing and pre-filling out our first visit sheet will help you get started prior to your appointment (so you do not have to keep your pet waiting). Click here to download First Visit Sheet

At Highland Animal Clinic, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

  • ""Thank you for the condolence card for Goggy. It was time and she was peaceful at her time. The surgery on her mouth and ear performed at your clinic last year brought her peace and health her final months. But then her weight began dropping dramatically and she was often disoriented and afraid. She went as she came. In my lap and was greeted at the rainbow bridge by her Cocker Spaniel family.""
