Lake Pet Hospital Medical Services
We believe that these exams are important in every phase of your pet’s life. Routine examinations are performed at all of our vaccination appointments. However, due to the fact that your pet’s life span is shortened compared to your own, it is especially important to perform routine geriatric exams to ensure that your pet is aging appropriately. Our in house blood analysis can perform geriatric panels to check for any issues that may be arising with your pet. Early detection will help us assist you in letting your pet live up to it’s potential.
We perform yearly vaccinations on your pet to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We do not believe that one vaccination protocol fits all pets. Our doctors will take into consideration the lifestyle and exposure to disease of your pet and recommend a vaccination protocol especially tailored to your pet’s needs.
We provide a full array of surgical procedures for your pet. Some of our routine procedures include spay, neuter, declaw, and tumor removal. Our doctors are also trained to do orthopedic procedures, ear cropping, cosmetic eye surgery, anal sac removal, repair of fractured bones, tail docking, hernia repairs and a whole array of specialty procedures.

Our dental services include teeth cleaning, teeth polishing, and tooth extractions. Good oral health is imperative to the overall health of your pet and we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve that through excellent service.
Laboratory & Diagnostics
Our in house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, urinalysis and parasites testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations.
Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy uses a laser light to penetrate tissue without damaging it. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation” which leads to reduced pain, reduced inflammation and increased healing.
We use the Home Again microchip and offer the implantation service for an economical fee. This is a permanent identification system to help ensure your lost pet finds it’s way home back to you.
Our new digital radiograph system delivers excellent quality images for our doctors to diagnose a wide variety of diseases and disorders. The imaging takes seconds to capture and is a valuable diagnostic tool in our practice.
We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pets
Our doctors and staff are able to care for the needs of many exotic pets. In addition to routine care, we offer break/wing/toenail clipping of our avian patients.

Our staff is able to provide information about routine diseases in each of these species and advice on husbandry management of your exotic pet.
Prescription Diets/Food Products
We maintain a full inventory of the Hill’s Prescription Diets and Science Diets, the Iams/Eukanuba products and the full line of ProPac pet foods. If we do not routinely carry what your pet needs, we can special order any type of diet.
End of Life Care & Home Euthanasia
We would like our pets to live forever, but unfortunately that is not reality. Our doctors and staff can help you and your pet during this painful process and provide the most caring and humane end of life care as possible. If you prefer, we provide the service of performing euthanasias in your home to try and reduce the stress to you and your companion.
Please call our main phone number for instructions for the after hour emergency services.
FEBRUARY IS PET DENTAL MONTH
Oral Health is very important to the overall general health of your pet. Plaque and tartar on the teeth harbor dangerous bacteria. This bacteria will cause an inflammation of the gums called gingivitis. This inflammation allows the bacteria from the tartar to be picked up into the bloodstream and can cause illness to your pet’s heart and kidneys.
You may notice that the teeth will have a brown build-up, the breath may be foul, and your pet may have trouble chewing hard food or treats. Most dogs and cats over the age of 4, especially the smaller dogs, will have one or more of these symptoms. This is a warning sign to you to have your pet’s mouth checked by one of our professional staff.
If your pet requires a teeth cleaning, we will administer an anesthesia and use an ultrasonic scaler to remove the plaque. The gums will be flushed with an antiseptic solution, and the teeth will be polished to smoothen the surface of the enamel to help prevent plaque from forming again. Our patients are received into the hospital at 8:00 am and are ready to go home later in the afternoon. We perform the dental procedures Monday-Friday.
During the month of February, we are offering 20% off of the anesthesia and the cleaning/polishing procedure. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact us at 573-392-3257.
