VCA Lakeside Animal Hospital has been a proud member of the community since 1990. Once a one doctor practice, we now employ 23 people and five doctors. In 2002, the hospital moved to a new facility to better accommodate our clients and their pets.
The doctors and support staff at VCA Lakeside Animal Hospital are committed to the health, safety and well-being of your pet. Through continuing client education and preventative care, we strive to improve and maintain the human-animal bond. We thank you for visiting our site and hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your pet.
