We're pleased to offer the following services at North Spokane Veterinary Clinic:


We provide puppy/kitten vaccinations, as well as reasonably priced adult vaccinations available with annual physical exam, when required. As a reminder for your pets, Washington State law requires a rabies vaccination.

Spay and Neuter

We provide spay & neuter services for puppies and kittens, as well as adult dogs and cats.

Dental Care

We cannot stress enough to our clients the importance of good oral hygiene. This includes mandatory blood-work, due to the involvement of anesthesia.


In-house full service x-ray is available for immediate diagnostics.


Complete in-house diagnostics are available for common skin disorders involving bacteria, parasite, or fungus. Outside lab resources are available for complex cases, and also, those where food, chemical, or plant may be involved.


We provide in-house diagnostics utilizing Idexx Catalyst DX Chemistry and Lasercyte CBC analyzers with results in minutes. In addition, we have many blood panels through outside labs of Idexx ( ) and Phoenix ( ) with next day results.


In addition to spay and neuter surgery Dr. Alstead has performed thousands of surgeries in her 25 year career. This includes everything from tumor removal and exploratory surgery to orthopedic surgery such as ACL repair.

Laser Therapy

Recently developed, low intensity laser, has become available for treatment of a wide variety of medical conditions. Our initial interest was treating arthritic and other joint disorders in geriatric dogs. We decided to use K-Laser, an industry leader and the first therapy laser approved by the FDA for human treatment. Complete information can be found at We now offer treatment for both canine and feline chronic pain associated with arthritis in a multitude of treatment packages depending on the extent of affliction. Laser treatment is well documented in accelerating healing by stimulating healthy tissue production. This fact makes it extremely beneficial in reducing healing time for most types of surgery, trauma sites, and skin disorders.

Geriatric/Senior Pet Care

Our clinic, led by Dr. Alstead and her 25 years of veterinary practice with special attention to medical problems of the senior pet, along with her equally passionate team, provide the best care available. Promoting preventive medicine utilizing blood-work, ECG, x-ray, ultrasound, etc., your pet’s health can be monitored during the senior years and the necessary steps taken to ensure health and extend life. Diagnostic packages for these tests can be discussed with Dr. Alstead and the best course of action taken.


Our in-house pharmacy is stocked with most essential drugs necessary for your pet’s healthcare. We have been systematically pricing medication to that found with on-line pharmacies. In addition, we carry a wide variety of products including nutritional supplements, dental care products, flea & tick prevention products, and many others.


We provide the most affordable microchip available, 911PetChip. Cost is $18.00 with free registration. Learn more at

Diet and Nutrition

We carry, or will special order, prescription canine and feline foods from Hills Science Diet ( ), Royal Canin ( ), and Purina ( ). For normal canine and feline feeding we carry iVet Professional Formula Foods ( ). iVet foods was founded in 2002 by a group of veterinarians with a goal of developing nutritious food while keeping costs as low as possible. They have succeeded at both. We feel they offer the best canine and feline food on the market at the most affordable price.
