What Our Clients Say
Our new client Cheri sent this video to express her Thanks to Dr. Pete and the team for “putting Clara back together again” after a larger dog attacked her. One interesting part of this story is that Clara was initially treated at one of the big 24/7 ER clinics in the cities. But, Dr. Pete had to make some refinements in order for Clara to heal completely. Another sweet part of this story is that Dr. Pete wiped away tears as he watched the video.
Lakes Veterinary & Surgical Center deserves an award for all of their great service they have done and continue to do. We are so glad to have found them and have worked with them to have a hip replacement done for my cat Bear. They made a plan with us and saw how urgent his scenario was and Dr. Pete stayed late to help us many times. The staff is compassionate and caring and really made a stressful time easier for our family. We appreciate all you have done and want to say thank you so much Lakes Veterinarian!
Highly suggest this place. ♥️♥️♥️
We are so thankful for Dr. Pete and his staff. Pete stuck with my husband and I to diagnose my lab Molly and found out she has a rare disease. At one point we were not knowing what our next step was, he was very patient with us and suggested we give her more time. She’s doing so well right now and we were so thankful she’s still with us. Dr. Pete has been so instrumental in her care and survival. Thank u so much to his staff also.
We have been going to Lakes Vet for 20+ years with our family dogs. I got my own dog, a Golden Retriever, and she has began having a lot of anxiety after a bad vet visit. When we went in for her annual today Dr. Anna and Claire the Tech were AMAZING!!! As someone with anxiety, it was so reassuring to see how they instantly greeted Daisy as they entered the exam room. They were patient, understanding, and flexible with Daisy’s needs. I am so appreciative for Dr. Anna & Claire!! Thank you for helping my baby girl!

I wanted to thank you guys again for the great job you did with Bauer’s surgery in July. Just over a week ago he took two best of breeds at Rochester MN Kennel club and is a working group 4. You can barely see his shaved area from surgery in the photo. Thank you again to the surgery team who listened to the crazy lady who begged to not shave his whole face 🙂

Thank God for Dr. Pete and Staff! We had our pug Gemma scheduled for surgery and Dr. PETE saved our babies’ lives with his excellent knowledge of doing complicated surgery. We could never thank you enough and Gemma says thank you. See you in a couple of weeks.

Dr. Pete is amazing and has a huge heart. It’s very obvious that everyone that works here really cares about the pets they are working with. They are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone especially for surgery.

I have used this vet both emergency surgery and for neuter surgery. Both times I have been very pleased with the service and pricing. I drive an hour to bring my cats to this place! The staff is very friendly and they make you feel very welcome and informed. I highly recommend Lakes Vet for all your pet’s needs! I wish they would open a location closer to me!
We’ve been fortunate to have many pets under the care of LVSC. Despite the drive now that we’ve moved, we won’t be changing vets as our fur family is in the best care possible. Always caring, aware and sensitive to our needs – large or small. Dr. Henderson is great with our min pins which is no easy undertaking.
Incredible customer service! The tech and vet spent a lot of time with me and my new pup answering questions, being sure I understood what was going on, giving me free advice ? etc. Fantastic people. Very personable, down-to-earth, helpful, I live over an hour away, but they are my first choice for a vet.
Complex surgeries that others refer
Dr. Pete performs many surgeries that are typically done at specialty clinics onsite (versus contracted to an outside veterinarian).
Complex Orthopedic and TTA Knee Surgery done onsite
Dr. Pete performs many orthopedic surgeries such as i.e. TTA, ACL, Luxating Patella, FHO, UAP, and OCD.
Digital X-Ray and Digital Dental X-Ray
Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.
Laser surgery is performed by utilizing a high frequency beam of light to cut and cauterize, which reduces bleeding and speeds healing.
We perform general dentistry and oral surgery procedures with the aid of digital radiography, tissue grafts, and a specially trained team.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Plasma platelets are harvested from the pet’s blood, then re-injected. This helps the pet’s body to improve the ability to heal itself.
Laser therapy helps to treat pets with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and promotes wound healing.
Healthy teeth are the window into your pet’s wellbeing. By making your pet’s dental health a priority, they will be healthier and happier!
