What Our Clients Say

bauer awardI 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 🙂

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!

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.

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.

They are so caring and compassionate. Our fur baby Daisy had to get an oral tumor removed. We were so worried but Dr. Pete put a lot of our fear aside. He called me after her surgery and kept me informed. His staff is bar none the best! I knew she was in the best hands possible. Can’t thank them enough for taking care of my baby Daisy. God bless you

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!

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.

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.

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

Laser surgery is performed by utilizing a high frequency beam of light to cut and cauterize, which reduces bleeding and speeds healing.

Advanced Dentistry

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

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

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.

Dental Health

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!
