Victoria Vosburg, DVM

Veterinarian and Owner of Pet's Choice Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Vosburg graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1993. Prior to that, she received a degree in biology from Montana State University. When she moved here in 1993, Dr. Vosburg began working with bald eagles at the Alaska Raptor Center in addition to caring for dogs and cats in Sitka. She opened Pet's Choice in 2010 while continuing to care for injured wild birds at The Alaska Raptor Center. Her time away from work is spent volunteering for Sitka Mountain Rescue as a part of the Incident Management Team, hiking with her dogs, practicing yoga, birding, and spending time with her husband, Burgess who is also a veterinarian. His clinic is in the same building as Pet's Choice but remains a separate practice.

Elsie & Mr. Biz

Clinic Supervisors

These cats came to us as strays from Kake and Klawock both located in Southeast Alaska. Mr. Biz (right) loves to greet clients, comfort them during emergencies,  and help them with their paperwork. Elsie (left) enjoys watching the reception area from our display shelves. If you are chewing minty gum while you visit, she will most likely come running to try and steal your yummy treat, but please don't give her any.
