Lakewood Animal Hospital

Full Service Vet Clinic

All four of our locations, including Lakewood Animal Hospital, are full-service facilities offering general medicine, surgical procedures, dentistry, nutritional and behavioral counseling, and emergency services.

Preventative Care

Regular wellness visits are preventative and keep your pet happy and healthy for years to come! Based on age and existing conditions, exams should be scheduled annually or semi-annually to provide the most optimal care.

Diagnostic Care

Diagnostics are absolutely essential to find out what is going on inside. Pet owners are often blind to the pain and discomfort their pet is experiencing simply because their pet cannot verbalize what is hurting. We are dedicated to educating pet owners on signs of pain to encourage preventative care.

We aim to diagnose and decrease or eliminate any and all pain in your pet. Pain not only alters physical functioning, it may also be detrimental to your pet’s mental wellbeing. We actively manage pain before, during, and after any procedure to keep your pet as pain-free as possible.

Veterinary Pet Surgery

Our staff rigorously monitors anesthesia and cardiovascular functioning throughout each stage of surgery- from pre-surgical procedure to recovery. An exam and pre-surgical bloodwork is conducted to determine what is best for your pet. For instance, we consider factors such as the type of procedure, pre-existing conditions, blood test values, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.

Pet Dental Services

Routine dental care is more important than you may think. Annual or semi- annual exams and cleanings are recommended to prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontal disease. Your pet is unable to communicate the pain and discomfort of dental disease!

Senior Pet Care

Senior pets require specialized care to promote health and a long and active life. The immune system weakens with age, making seniors more vulnerable to parasites, disease, and illness.
