Behind the name

The Malaherd Story

We all have that special breed that we are drawn to. We wanted to honor two of our incredible fur babies, who we lost prior to opening – an Alaskan Malamute and a German Shepard. Instead of incorporating their names, we decided to use their breeds. Thus, Malaherd was born – “Mala” for Alaskan Malamute and “Herd” for German Shepherd. While it’s kind of a silly name, it has great meaning to my husband and me.

Thank you for making us one of the highest-rated veterinary hospitals in Albuquerque, NM.

Switched here after we could not get an appointment for several months with our previous vet. This office has been great. I don’t get the sense that they are trying to upsell us on anything, they have been kind but straightforward on care and have allowed us to find prescriptions cheaper providing us with the prescription, which is allowing us overall better care of our pets. Thank you!

This clinic has a very kind and knowledgeable staff! We are first time puppy parents and are super happy with the care our puppy Bella received! The facility is very clean, organized, and nice. They took the time to answer all of our questions and addressed our concerns. Would definitely rate a 10 out of 10 and recommend it to anyone looking for such amazing care!
