He provides clinical and consultation services for both private and public collections of wild animals, and serves as a consulting veterinarian for Departments of the Arizona Game and Fish, the White Mountain Apache Game and Fish, the New Mexico Game and Fish, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Dr. Alcumbrac is the lead veterinarian for the Mexican Wolf Project, the Sonoran Pronghorn Antelope Project and multiple game and non-game species studies.
Since 1994, Dr. Alcumbrac has owned and operated our friendly mixed animal and exotic practice in northern Arizona, providing treatment to any animal that comes through the door. Our practice has overseen several zoological operations, including patients from the prestigious Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, the Phoenix Zoo, and Bearizona. He is a recipient of the Award of Excellence from the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. Dr. Alcumbrac serves as an adjunct faculty member at Texas Tech University and a past Instructor of Veterinary Sciences at Northland Pioneer College. He also teaches formal classes and practicals internationally on wildlife capture. When not working in the southwest, his work has taken him from Argentina, Peru, and Mexico to all points in the United States. Also a pilot and a diver, when Dr. Ole isn’t rescuing endangered species in the deserts and mountains, he enjoys going to his house south of the Mexican border to dive, fish, or just drinking a margarita on the beach.
Back in the White Mountains, Dr. Ole is well-known & loved. As one of the most established veterinarians in the area, most folks have heard his name here or there. He loves seeing your pets and helping you to both understand and correct any issues they may be experiencing, almost as much as he loves his work with our local & foreign wildlife!
