What Our Clients Say

We drive here all the way from North Branch, and will continue to do so!

Our current puppy is the first of our fur babies to have gone here, and we won’t go anywhere else ever again.

The prices are spot on, the vets are incredibly knowledgable & caring, and the rest of the staff are all very patient & kind as well. Our dog feels comfortable & loved here! We always know she’s in good hands.

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 💛🐶

So happy to be able to bring our kitty to a great local business. We had a great experience, they were very considerate and helpful with tips to get our scardy cat in, we had to cancel his appointment 2 times because we couldn’t get him in the carrier but they were very understanding. They were also very thorough with explaining the after care & the procedure they did, we recommend them highly.

The best vets I’ve ever been to. I brought my dog in to see Dr. Meaghan and she knew immediately what was wrong with him (after many others didn’t) and fixed him right up. Dr. Pete has done two TTA surgeries on him and knowing how nervous my boy is has allowed me to bring him home right after so he could heal and stay calm. I consider myself so lucky to live three short miles from the people who take such great care of the one I love the most!!! The staff are so helpful and always so nice!! I just cant say thank you enough to Dr.Meaghan and Dr.Pete for taking the best care of my best friend!!!

Today I took my injured dog Balto in to get his paw looked at. It was a great experience! I had to bring my 2 little guys who are a big handful! The whole staff were so helpful with me! Balto was in great hands. Super affordable also I will definitely be back.

Complex surgeries that others refer

Dr. Pete performs many surgeries that are typically done at specialty clinics onsite (versus contracted to an outside veterinarian).

Laser Surgery

The laser is a high frequency beam of light that comes out of an instrument that looks like a pen. There is less pain and quicker recovery.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy helps to treat pets with arthritis, tendon or soft tissue injuries and to promote wound healing.

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.

Dentistry & Complex Oral Surgery

Dr. Pete performs general dentistry and oral surgery procedures with the aid of digital radiography and our progressively schooled staff.

Home Visits

If your pets don’t travel well in the car or are getting too old to make the trip, we can help. One of our doctors can come to you. Travel charges apply.

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.

Platelet Rich Plasma

Plasma platelets are harvested from the pet’s blood, then re-injected. This helps the pet’s body to improve ability to heal itself.
