Veterinarians are medical professionals who care for the health and well-being of pets. They can provide vaccinations, spay & neuter services and dental work.
Choosing the right veterinarian can be difficult. You can narrow down your search by asking friends and family for recommendations or using a tool like GreatVet.
The veterinarians at Sugarloaf Animal Clinic are committed to promoting pet wellness and longevity in the North Phoenix area. They have a staff of expert vet doctors and vet techs that work together to provide exceptional care for your pets. The staff are experienced in a wide variety of pet health issues and have extensive education and training.
It is important to consider whether the vet location you choose supports emergency services for your pets. Many vet locations have a nearby 24-hour hospital they refer to for emergency and advanced pet care that is not available at their practice.
A good way to narrow your search for veterinarians is to look at their GreatVet scores and reviews. GreatVet profiles show scores from across all review sources and gives you full visibility into each vet option’s internet reputation. They also make it easy to compare ratings on hours, services and location to help you find the right veterinarian for your pets.
Vaccines help protect pets from serious illnesses. They work by introducing your pet’s immune system to small amounts of inactive or killed bacteria or viruses. The body then develops antibodies to those specific diseases. If your pet is exposed to a real disease, the antibodies will fight it off.
Puppies, kittens and adult pets need vaccinations to stay healthy and to prevent the spread of contagious diseases. Core vaccines include rabies, distemper, parvovirus and hepatitis. A rabies vaccination is mandatory in many states. Non-core vaccines for dogs include the bordetella vaccine, which is used to treat kennel cough, and leptospirosis, which is a life-threatening bacterial infection transmitted by ticks.
While vaccinations do carry a risk of side effects, the risks are far greater for your pet to contract a deadly disease that could have been prevented by vaccines. Vaccinations are especially important for puppies and kittens, which have immature immune systems. Our veterinarians can advise you on the vaccination schedule for your pet.
Spay & Neuter
Our veterinarians treat pets as family members and are dedicated to advancing their profession by upholding the highest medical standards, researching new treatments and procedures, and working together as a team. They love their work and are committed to improving the lives of animals, humans, and the environment that they share.
Studies show that unaltered dogs and cats are more aggressive, which is why we encourage all pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered. If you are feeding community or feral cats and they’re not altered, Altered Tails’ TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program and AzCATs low cost spay neuter clinic can help!

She credits her grandfather with igniting her passion for veterinary medicine, tagging along with him to his Phoenix veterinary clinic as a kid. After many years of training and performing as a professional dancer, she finally decided to fulfill her lifelong ambition by attending vet school.
Veterinary dental care is critical to your pet’s overall health and quality of life. Dental disease can cause infections and pain, and if left untreated can lead to serious medical issues such as microscopic changes in the heart, liver and kidneys. Annual dental exams and cleanings are recommended to help prevent and treat oral disease.
